look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Almost root beer like in color this brown ale is nicely rich in hue with a thin and bubbly head.

The aroma is of dry chocolate, roasted coffee and biscuity malt. Well done on the scent but it's rather weak.

Nice roasted body hits the tongue with coffee and distant chocolate. Roasted malt and/or coffee hits first and the finish is a bit watery. There's a nice chocolatey after taste that in some respects is as good as the roasted fore taste.

Overall, I like it. It may haves some weaknesses but it is what it is, a good brown ale.

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.
