12 oz can, poured into pint glass

medium brown in color, not much head. as for the smell and taste - it's okay, but can't put my finger on it, but the high level of hops don't seem to blend well with the malt flavors. on the thinner side for a brown ale.

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.

A big shout out to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Despite zero agitation, this can came gushing out, spilling out of the glass and onto my Reggie White throwback jersey. Has a dark chestnut color with several inches of head. Smell is malty, nutty, some hops as well. Taste is surprisingly hop forward, some citrus, malts are present but take a back seat. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, a bit different for the style, but an enjoyable beer.
