3.46/5 rDev -12%
Dark chocolate brown in color. No light will pierce this brew. Fingernail thin eggshell colored foam on top. Aroma of caramel and coffee is present but faint. The flavor is very much so coffee and and dark malt. The mouthfeel is a bit chalky and thick.

4.1/5 rDev +4.3%
A - Brown beer with a tan head that faded to a nice ring. Some decent spots left on the sides of the glass.
S - Smells like a brown ale should. Nice brown sugar, little bit of chocolate, some lightly toasted malts. A good, hefty dose of flavor that is for something with this ABV.
T - Good brown sugar malts, chocolate, and some roast. There's great flavor on this lower ABV beer. No complaints here.
M - Medium bodied with good carbonation. Not over carbonated like too many brown Ales.
O - Good Brown Ale. Goes down easy, good flavor, can drink a lot of it. Also goes well with food.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, strong pale malt, hint of dry hop, and a hint of toffee. Fits the style of an American Brown Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, strong sweet malt, slight pale malt, toffee, and a hint of dry hop. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma and body, but the blend is too sweet (almost cloying).

Enjoyed on-tap @ the Civil Life Brewing Company in St. Louis, MO for $5 (@ their 1st "Soft Opening"). Tapped from the line w/o a tap handle on it yet (too soon to have their tap handle branding), into a 16oz German Seidel Glass.
Aroma- Very clean with tons of malt and coffee in the nose. Has also a ton of toastiness and is very robust. Perfect!
Appearance- Received with a 1 finger, off white head that has good retention. Is an extremely dark brown color body that is clear. Leaves TONS of lacing afterwards.
Flavor- Has a high malty sweetness and roasty character from the beginning of the drink that lasts all the way through! Tons of coffee seem to be added into this one. Medium-High bitterness and can't get any better than this taste!
Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied (could use a bit more body), Medium Carbonation, Bitter all the way through, and has a small warming finish that makes the palate think its an 8% abv beer or higher.
Overall Impression- This American Brown is going to be giving all of the rest of the browns a run for their money! Very strong, malty, and filled with tons of coffee. Will be coming back to Civil Life to be getting a growler of this! While this brings back my liking to the American Brown style, I'm certainly going to be promoting this one from here on out!

On tap at Broadway Brewery in Columbia, MO.
A - Poured out a clear, brown color with a one-finger, tan head of long-lasting foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled very nutty with some mild floral notes.
T - It tasted very nutty with toffee, caramel and some mild chocolate. Subtle hop bitterness.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.
O - This is another tasty brew from The Civil Life. Looking forward to more beer from these guys.
