A - Dark dark brown with very little carbonation or head.
S - Roasty, malty and very nutty.
T - Starts with a dark roasted malt flavor, exudes tones of nuts (maybe almonds) and finishes with a nice bitter chocolate.
M - Medium body, smooth, and creamier than a headless beer usually is.
D - Don't let the light head throw you off or the silly label (more about this below) stop you from buying this gem fro Lost Coast. This is a very good brown all that goes down easy and won't bore the taste buds after a glass or two.
Lost Coast continues to make some darn good beers and continues to package them with cartoon laden labels and taps. Perhaps it's just me but it's hard to take them seriously when i am embarassed to carry a goofy looking six pack to the cash register - maybe that's just my issue....

A: Pours a crystal clear dark reddish amber brown in color with minimal amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some ruby red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy foamy beige head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of toasted and roasted malts with some lighter aromas of chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla.
T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of roasted and toasted malts with a light amount of sweetness. There are moderate flavors of cocoa and chocolate with just a hint of vanilla. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness are present but do not linger for too long.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy with a touch of alcohol warming in the finish.
O: A nice example of a brown ale with some really nice winter flavors. I enjoyed this one and would definitely consider grabbing it again. Overall the alcohol is well hidden and the beer is relatively easy to drink.

A: Ruby red tinted brown with a mocha head.
S: Citrus hops and a touch of nutty malt in a faint nose.
T: Cinnamon, cardamom, nutty malt, nutmeg, blended really well together. A touch of alcohol.
M: Medium bodied and a little alcohol astringency. Moderate levels of carbonation.
O: Definitely one of the better brown ales I've had, which is saying absolutely nothing, so I'll put it this way: It's a great beer, nice and wintery, and the nutty malt serves as a nice backbone for the wintery style. Recommended.
