A very dark brown ale with excellent mouthfeel and appearance. but disappointing taste and aroma. Looks and feels like a stout, and tastes more than a little like one too.
A - nearly opaque dark brown with low level of head. The head is short-lived but leaves side lacing for a while.
T - too earthy; bitter but not hoppy finish. Relatively strong roasted/burnt components.
M - medium/medium-heavy; creamy; noticeable carbonation.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: can
