a good ole fluffy 2 fingers if light tan foam, pretty much as dark as brown can get, light passing through certainly has its work cut out for it, thank goodness for GPS... the lacing is really nice leaving a historical record on the sides of the glass like some rock face in the great canyon or such, the head fades at a decent pace (kind of like my hairline) but never quite goes away, after all that verbosity this is simply a good looking brew.
strong sweet coffee flooded with some sweet ass molasses, cocoa powder, some kind of fall spice... nutmeg ? the aroma is strong and delicious
a nice medium thickness in the mouth, the flavors match the nose to a tee with a slight more emphasis on the lingering chocolate notes, there is some burnt flavor in there (if you like starbucks you would like this), the flavor is really full here, lots of bitter chocolate
notes, a good amount of sweetness, lingering notes all over the place.the carbonation is pretty slick, just enough to keep things going and it gets out of the way when the flavor train comes down the track.Each sip is an invite to the party, you just are compelled to have some more.
delicious, wonderfully tasty beer, perfect for the season, not too heavy but with heft... not too boozy but has some punch. great brew. this brewery has certainly impressed me lately.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.
A- Pours a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.
S- Lovely aroma that's sweet and toasty with notes of milk chocolate, hazelnut and coffee. Slightly musty with a noticeable alcohol fume.
T- Enticing flavor that reminds me of peanut brittle. Quite complex too as milk chocolate, mild anise and a coffee aftertaste all make appearances. Alcohol is there but manages to mingle with the rest of the flavors nearly perfectly resulting in high drinkability.
M- Slightly creamy with mild carbonation and quite a full body for a brown ale.
O- I can see why this is Slumbrew's highest rated beer. Very tasty and intricate for a brown ale. A higher ABV and good sweetness are also big pluses.
