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.

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.

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...

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: The muddiest, murkiest brown color. A cream colored head that retains well. Light rings of lacing.

Aroma: Sweet bready malts, nutty, chocolate fudge.

Taste: Sweet bread, toffee-like sweetness. Nuts and chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Mefium bodied.

Overall: One of my favorite brown ales so far, really complex.
