4.38/5 rDev +20%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
This brew poured with a one finger off white head, which dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown with moderate visible carbonation on it. The nose had notes of coffee (even Aly picked this up) and chocolate with a bit of roasted malts. The taste on the brew was almost exactly like the nose, except the coffee overwhelmed the other flavors a bit. The roasted malts and chocolate were detectable, but definitely took back seat to the coffee. The finish lingered with the coffee flavor. The body was moderately thin, decently carbonated and the alcohol was obviously on the lower end. As I sipped the beer, I may have gotten a hint of sweetness as well, but it was very difficult to detect. This was a very flavorful brown ale that I would definitely have again.

On-tap at Rosie McCann's in Santa Cruz, CA. On to the beer:
Wood polish brown mixed with orange and red hues. Good webbed lacing clings to the glass. The nose is nutty, offering up notes of toffee crisp too. And Turbodog's flavor is nutty as well. Nutty with a side of graininess, a kiss of hops, and a vague crispness. With a lighter medium body, this ends up as a respectable, working man's brown ale.
