4.23/5  rDev n/a
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from tap into 12oz tulip at Terrapin, Rhinebeck, NY. Pours a crazy deep brown color - barely any light shines through - with nice thick tan head. Looks more like a porter than a brown..Smell is nicely roasted and bitter malts, toffee, caramel sweet. Taste is really nice bitter roasted caramel/toffee balancing nicely with the sweet malts. Its smooth and easy drinker. Crossroads is just great. (401 characters)

A: Nice deep brown ruby color. Minimal amount of white head. A touch of bubbly off white head.

S: The nose is of malt with a touch of caramel and tofee. It is kind of a tight nose but still enjoyable and to style.

T:Very much a brown ale. Not that much hops but a nice malt . complexity. Lots of toffee some caramel. It really just kind of falls in the middle. A good example but nothing to make it stand out.

M: A little bit thin in the body.

D: Very nice brown ale. Super drinkable and a ton of flavor. (516 characters)
