The pour is a dark brown color with a khaki head. Toasted malt and bread with some strong roasted malt aromas. There is a hint of chocolate, a touch of ash, and some earthy hops. The flavor is far too bitter for a brown ale. Some toasted malt, cocoa, and lots of roasted malt. A hint of coffee, some earth, and burnt nuts. Was not a fan of this beer.

Pours dark brown with a loverly firm khaki head.
Nose is assertive esters, chocolate, malted milk and creamed sugared coffee - very nice.
Mouthfeel is rich, creamy, elegant, wonderfully balanced and very inviting.
Flavor profile is delicious coffee, malt, chocolate malt and burnt toast, all wonderfully balance with a rich burnt toast bitter.
Another very drinkable Calicraft beer. These guys are doing something right as all three of their current bottle offerings are very good and wonderfully drinkable, along or with food. Whether you like them or not is up to you; but, these are very well made brews.
Finish is dry malt, coffee and bitter chocolate, all long lasting and memorable.

Had on-tap at the bar at SOMA StreatFood Park. Reviewed from notes.
A - Dark brown, clear body with an off-white head that quickly disappeared before I found a place to sit down.
S - Light nutty bread, milk chocolate, and raisins. Faint hint of hops.
T - Seemed watered down for some reason. The smells were evident in the taste, but to a lesser degree than expected. For some reason, the back end and aftertaste reminded me of how floral fabric softener smells (think chemically synthesized flowers).
M - Easy-drinking, light bodied and light carbonation.
O - An okay beer, not that bad, but not that good. Though listed at 6.7 ABV, it seemed like a session ale. The strange "fabric softener" aftertaste was not appealing, and is what made me not really like this one. I suppose I would have it again, but only if there wasn't something better available.

Pours a clear brown color with a small white head.
Aromas are light cocoa, nuts, and dark bread. The nose is faint but pleasant.
Taste is nutty up front. Creamy sweetness, light breads, then the beer fades to some light mineral hops and not much less. Not a bad tasting beer, but kind of boring.
Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, but on the thin side.
Overall, an OK brown, but kind of boring and basic. Not bad, but nowhere near worth the $6 price tag, you could probably brew your own instead.
