From a 12 oz bottle into a nonic.
A-The brew pours dark, walnut brown. Foam was pretty skimpy and dark khaki in color.
S-Milk chocolate smell up front with a little hit of roasted, nutty malts. As the brew warms, a little brown sugar creeps up. Not terribly fragrant.
T-Smooth, mild, chocolatey malts at first gulp. Then you get a little bit of caramel and nuttiness. The finish has just a little bit of hop kick. Very little bitterness.
M-Lighter bodied for the style with smooth, but noticeable carbonation. The finish is thin. This beer is quite drinkable.
O-There is nothing special about this brew, but it is a solid, drinkable example of the style. The chocolate smell and flavor are a little simple (as is the mouthfeel), but on a relaxing fall evening that calls for a few beers, you could do far worse than putting down a few of these.

Pour from can purchased at Distellers Outlet in Poway CA. Dark brown with a big off white head. Nice lacing. Smell is incredible. Vanilla, brown sugar, honey. Taste is very pleasent. Malts and a nutty tinge with hints of vanilla, defintley getting some chocolate too but its very faint. I purchased just one can, next time I'll get a sixer of this, really enjoyable.

A- dark brown with Carmel edges. Two finger head which dies down but retains a little. Slight lacing
S- subdued roasted barley, toast, a little fresh black coffee, light hops. Rather inviting.
T- Roast barley, sweet malt, light caramel, herbal hops creep in, which is slightly off putting. Long bready finish.
M-Full bodied and not too effervescent. Really really nice.
O- Solid American brown ale. Not cloying. Very pleasant on a chilly evening.
