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.

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.

LOOK: Pours a medium brown color with a large soapy head. A bit too aggressively carbonated; pour with caution my fellow beer advocates.

SMELL: Bready and doughy, slighly nutty and has a nice piney hop smell from Nugget and Amarillo hop varieties.

TASTE: An ale with good character, there is plenty of toasty malt along with strong hop bitterness. Pine, grapefruit peel, wood, and toast. The malt bill holds up well to the hops, and is pretty tasty all in all. Definitely top heavy in the resinous hop category, but that works well here.

FEEL: Light bodied and overcarbonated. A bit dry, and even some char on the end.

OVERALL: A decent hoppy brown, and one I might get again down there road if perchance it was there. Could use some cleaning up, but has some redeeming qualities.
