Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. No bottled on date. There's a dog on the label, and a little note about it. What is with the whole micro brown ale/dog thing?
Appearance: Pours a grand beer with a massive off-white/tan head that stick and retains very well. Beer colour is deep brown/chocolate with mahogony stain edges.
Smell: Aroma = absolutely wonderful. Perfumy, floral, malty, toasty, bicuity with freshly milled grain powder aromas and loads of caramel flavours that force the anticipation of a rather sweet brew.
Taste: Silky smooth mouthfeel with a medium body. Malt flavours are very even. Caramel, earth, a bit nutty, touch of roasted, toasted and biscuit followed by a near sugary sweetness, but not too sweet. Hop flavours are perceived, but not dominant ... providing balance and thin bitterness that seems to team up with the touch of roasted malt. Hint (hint) of raisin that mingles with the hops. Finish goes a tad dry with some grain notes.
Notes: A very tasty and well-executed American brown ale. If you're a brown ale fan, this is a must. Malty, balanced, tamed hop character and a wonderful aroma.
Many thanks to Arctic Liquors for the sample.

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.
