Once I tasted it I was sure it was an Avery, very nice. One of the better brown ales available. Very nice sweet chocolate, coffee, and floral hops aroma. Flavor of toasted malt and chocolate. Caramel malt aftertaste. All the flavor I wanted out of the style.

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.
