Pours cola brown with a 1 inch white head that settles to a thick cap and ring on top that leaves thick strands of lace.
Smell is of hazelnut up front with faint chocolate, caramel and molasses on the finish. Very pleasant.
Taste is of big hazelnut sweetness, molasses, roasted malt and brown sugar up front with faint chocolate on the back end.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.
A solid malty brown ale with pleasant coffee, hazelnut, chocolate and brown sugar accents.

Pours a dark brown color with ruby edges and a finger of beige head. The head dissipates fairly quickly but leaves some nice lacing behind. The nose is slightly bready. The body is relatively hearty. The flavor is bready with a faint touch of maple. The finish is semi-dry.

A: Very low head, but otherwise a nice deep copper. Slightly murky, and nice sediment.
S: Brown sugar, butter, chocolate, smokiness.
M: Thin, grainy, and rough. Low carbonation, and a chocolate soda like fizz. Unfortunately not as smooth as the guy's plum colored suit, and the beer's major fault.
T: Chocolate, caramel, burnt toffee, tobacco, roasted malts, roasted hazelnut. NO bitterness. Residual sweetness. Or are these big flavor at fault?
O: Confusing beer. Great flavor profile with potential to carry complimentary bittering herbals with its thinner texture, but is wasted by being too dry, making the chocolate seem powdery. Granted this beer was stamped 12/13, and if I see a fresher bottle I would like to re-evaluate for hop character, and hope for:
1) A nice hoppiness; or,
2) A smoother mouthfeel.
