12 oz can. Pours brown with a medium frothy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is nice roasty chocolate malts.

The flavor is roasty chocolate malts, nuts and some brown sugar. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a solid brown which is not my favorite style. I remember liking it a bit better on tap.

Dark brown in color with a fingernail of khaki colored head. Brussels lacing. Enticing aroma of caramel, chocolate, and dark malt greets me. There's plenty more chocolate and caramel with a toffe like finish packed in with each sip. The mouth is creamy and rather chewy. This is a real treat.

Small light brown head settles to a quarter inch froth above a clear dark brown to black colored beer.

Very light dark roasted malts aroma that seems to have a light sweetness to it.

Vary dark roasted malts with some dark chocolates in a the taste.

Dry aftertaste with quite a bit of the dark malts taste remaining behind with this medium to full bodied beer.

Pretty taste brown ale, I'm glad I tried it.

Look: Finger of off white head dissipates relatively quickly. Beautiful deep dark brown in color. Barely any light gets through this one.

Smell: Dark chocolate, freshly percolated coffee, some other roasty malts. Smells to me what a cabin deep in the woods smells like.

Taste: Super roasty toasty coffee and toffee. Nice chocolaty sweetness. A little nutty.

Feel: Its a little creamy but still feels a little thin to me. Roast really lingers in the back of the throat.

Overall: I love this beer. It really reminds me of camping, where everything is dirty and or burnt. I'm also really not great at camping.

Poured from tap into imperial pint at Euclid hall Denver. Nice creamy head over a deep amber brown. Some nice roasted coffee malts and sweet chocolate aroma. Flavor of sweet chocolate but mainly roasted bitter malt. A bit over bitter but it plays nice with the sweetness. Its super dry...but overall a damn good brown. Would love on cask...
