Pours an opaque black color with a thick white head with good retention. When held to white there is a nice copper redness to the color.
Smell is a good nutty malty smell. There is a bit of an oatmeal smell as well.
Taste is much the same. Starts of with a nice malty oatmeal taste, ending with a good nutty finish.
Mouthfeel has a nice thickness. Not as smooth as I am used to, a little chewy in the mouth.
Drinkability is very nice. This is a good brown ale with a very nice amount of taste with a good nut finish.

The body appears tobacco juice brown and features a thin yet sticky light tan head. Nuts and roasted malt grain aroma. The taste sports a malty sweetness offset with a somewhat bitter and slightly acrid flavor at the finish. Medium bodied; smooth and semi-dry finish.
This brown ale appears to have roots in within a traditional, malt-forward type of ale. The malt sugars are the key: rich, slightly charred in flavor and aftertaste, and with the hops providing a low-key bitterness to nicely complement the sugary sweetness. Robust and delicious.
