Got in the winter version of the SweetWater Tackle Box. Pours a very dark brown color, comparable to a porter. Leaves a fairly light colored head. Has a sweet and slightly fruity smell but I can't quite put my finger on what it is.

This beer has a unique taste that I have never experienced in a brown ale or any other beer for that matter. There is a sweet sugary taste that is typical of brown ales. However, there is also a fruity and maybe somewhat tangy flavor that follows this sweetness. The hop profile is not as noticeable, though it may be there and just covered up by the other bold flavors. Overall, this is a unique beer that I would recommend at least trying. I personally like it, though I feel that not everyone will like this different combination compared to other brown ales.

Pours a 1 inch head. Smells richly of malt and chocolate. Sweet tasting. Chocolate and caramel-ish flavors really stand out. Moderate lacing. No bitter aftertaste. Recommend this beer to anyone who has tried other browns and come away unsatisfied. Will definitely be buying this beer again.
