Notes/Commercial Description:
This is one monster of a Brown Ale! We use an obnoxious amount of chocolate malt and roasted barley to give this beer a cask iron backbone. Our oatmeal brown pours a dark mahogany with aromas of dark chocolate and coffee.

A: Chesnut brown with a bit of red tint. Some spotty lacing.

S: Biscuits. Honey and a slight hint of dark fruits.

T: Follows the nose. Interesting twist on a brown ale.

M: Medium body, and perhaps a bit thin for the style.

O: Interesting flavors.

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

A - Pours a solid brown color. Its head is small at about 1/2 finger. It does have nice retention and I thought the lacing was excellent

S - Aromas of dark chocolate and coffee beans. The aroma is lighter than I thought it would be but still pleasant

T - Man this is a great tasting beer. Very similar to the aroma but more potent. Again, dark chocolate and coffee beans dominate

M - Extremely smooth. Almost of cooling feeling. Would call it medium to heavy int he mouth.

O - What a great easy drinking beer. It'll be great in the fall for sitting around a campfire. Would even call it borderline sessionable. Will be getting this one again
