Bought an Avery variety pack the other weekend. This was one of the four sixers. Had this before and was glad to have tried it again as this is one solid beer.
A: Pours a dark amber/light brown with nice fluffy head. Pours as if this thing came out of a beer engine. Held to the light, some noticeable particles can be seen floating throughout my glass - I really don't mind though.
S: Smells very nutty with a nice solid chocolate undertone and some light nice toasted malts. The aroma is very well done!
T: More pronounced chocolate than in the nose. Again with the nut-brown malts and some toast. Reminds me of candied chocolates - not in-your-face strong chocolates, but nice and enjoying ones (if that makes sense).
M: Carbonation is appropriately low. Feels velvety in texture. Again reminds me like this one came out of a cask or pull engine which is simply awesome knowing that it came straight from a can. Sweetness is nicely balanced with the hops.
O: A great brown ale. A solid core beer in Avery's lineup. Glad to have finally tried this one back in March. It was a pleasure to have once again. I'll come back to this one quite often.

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.
