3.56/5  rDev -5.3%

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark brown coloring, slightly muddled, with a thin, low profile, light tan head. Aromas of coffee, roasted and sweet hazelnut, toffee sweetness, and a underlying hops citrus and bitterness. The nose is more balanced and substantial than a lot of browns out there. Flavors are nutty and roasted forward, with an immediate blast of resin and citrus hops in the backbone. This is a unique take on the brown style; much hoppier than usual. Some chocolate notes are in there, too, but just about all of the sweetness is cut by the heavy dose of hops character at the end of the palate. The body is smooth and light, and the beer has a hoppy aftertaste of bitterness, citrus sweet, and pine. Smooth, slightly drying finish. Interesting brew, almost getting into the realm of IBA.

On tap at Closed for Business. Served in a goblety pint glass.

Appearance - Deep brown. Excellent lacing from a small off-white head.

Smell - Nutty and chocolatey. Not a very intense aroma. Some earthy hops behind it.

Taste - Very chocolatey. Caramel and chocolate dark malts. The hops come up aggressively behind it. Overly bitter, but it does cut a bit of the sugars. Lingering sharp hop bite.

Mouthfeel - The finish is a little abrasive. Too bitter and sharp. Medium bodied.

Overall - Enjoyable, but a very different beer in the front and the back end.
