Pours a clear brown. Topped by a thick, beige head that's light, fluffy and seems almost whipped. There's good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is nicely malty with notes of caramel, dark fruit, roast and leafy hops.
Sweet malts over a toasty backbone are evident upfront. Chocolate and dark fruit come to the fore before the toasty backbone reemerges in the finish with a more roasty character and a light hop bitterness. Medium-bodied, and moderately carbonated.
Tasty, but a bit sweet overall.

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.
