Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Clear light brown color with deep amber at the periphery. Two fingers of off-white dense froth. Retention is good and and a short ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: This is easily one of the most chocolatety brown ales I've come across. Tons of milk chocolate with nuttiness not too far behind. Hops are of the citrusy and flowery realm. Toastiness for round everything out.
3.5 T: The taste isn't as robust as the nose might have suggested. Most of the chocolate has vanished with the nuttiness and toastiness also reduced. The hops give a mild bitterness and an earthy and citrusy flavor. Still tasty, just not as much as I thought it would be.
3.0 M: And here is the reason that the taste isn't as bold as the nose suggested. This beer falls on the lighter end of a medium body, possibly even lighter than that. Good moderate carbonation. Could definitely use some more creaminess.
3.0 D: This would be a pretty good beer if the mash temp was a good bit higher. The mouthfeel is weak and brings down the whole experience to "average."

It comes in a dark brown color, almost like a porter.
The aroma has mocha, lightly roasted coffee, heavily toasted bread, a caramel sweetness, lots of hazelnut.
The flavor follows with that hazelnut flavor, lightly roasted watery black coffee, a cocoa flavor, and then onto a lightly herbal finish. The beer robust characteristic almost similar to a really light porter.
Just an absolutely forgotten gem in the style.
