look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Clear, deep brown with a fluffy light brown cap. Good head retention, sticky lacing. Malty aroma, lots of roast and toffee, slight chocolate and burnt notes, faint hops -- very nice. Similar character in the flavour, but with moderate bitterness and slight tartness in the finish. Mild citrus was prominent up front and also lingered in the finish, earthy and slightly sweet overall. A bit of astringency was present, medium bodied, medium/low carbonation, decent texture. A good brown, quite enjoyable.

A-Pours a clear, yet dark brown with dark crimson tints. Head is big and fluffy. It maintains a good height and laces all over the glass.

S-Nutty and yeasty. There is a clear note of char as well. Some light roasty notes too. Mostly there is that nutty and yeasty combination.

T-The taste brings forth much more coffee with a nutty infusion. Almost like almond or hazelnut coffee. Really burnt toast. Light notes of chocolate with walnuts imbedded within. There is an underlying bitterness with minimal hop flavor as well.

M-Feels lighter than the relatively high ABV. Lighter in body; you won't mix this up with another style very easily(does have some Porter elements though).

O/D-A decent beer. The flavors are well placed but for some reason it did not resonate with me much. Good but not great, I will give Slumbrew some points for brewing a solid Brown Ale however. There needs to be more Browns.

Wow, only 1 review for this beer... it's been out for a little while at least, well either way my turn.

Pours an off color creamy but bubbly 1 finger head that fades at a med to slower pace, nice lacing, over super dark molasses brown with barely any light able to sneak through its grasp.

Nose just erupts with toasted nuts, toasted breaded candied almonds, some walnuts or chestnuts, and pecans, all covered in some brown sugar, and toasted grains. Plenty of toasted malt aromas as well, brown malts, plenty of caramel, toffee, molasses, a little fluffy nougat, and even a hint of chocolate caramel candies, and just a hint of roast.

Taste comes on sweet, rich and lush. Sweet syrupy malt flavors dominate initially, with molasses, tons of brown sugar, caramel, a little toffee, etc. which is followed by the toasty malts again, light fluffy nougat, a light juicy malt, and even a hint of roast similarly to the nose. Chocolate comes through a little, more of a milk chocolate with some mild bitterness, and along with the loaded caramel, nougat, and nut flavors this is almost like an ice cream sundae. Speaking of nuts, plenty of them as well, all toasted nuts, pecans, almonds, and light overall nutty flavor, again doused in brown sugar. Caramelized candy, light creme brulee. Then later a bit of some earthy slightly grassy and spicy hops come through with some bitterness. The finish dries a little but remains somewhat sticky and syrupy, plenty of lingering toasted nuts, malts, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, little chocolate and nougat lingering, etc. The slightly spicy hops also come through a bit more on the finish.

Mouth is med to fuller bodied, rich and lush, little sticky, syrup, decent carb, slightest hint of warming booze that is mostly hidden in the sweet lush malts.

Overall nice, but a bit over the top for my tastes. The malts are very nice, great sweet flavors, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, etc, and nice nutty flavors, lots of toasty flavors which are also nice, and not to mention the hint of chocolate and roast really add a nice layer of complexity. The hops are a nice touch on the finish too. However, that being said, it's a bit too sweet and syrupy overall to be a great beer, but a nice dessert beer that goes well with the caramel bourbon pecan bread pudding I'm about to enjoy.
