Dark brown with ruby highlights when backlit and a fine mocha head that leaves rings of crusty lace on the glass. Coffee, chocolate and nice floral hops make for a tasty smelling beer. Cocoa powder and java with some nice fruity hoppiness to balance nicely. Medium bodied with slightly stinging carbonation. Easy drinking and delicious, a really good brown ale.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint

As you can see from my score, everything look, smell, taste, feel, and drinkability is good for this beer. Pretty basic brown that leans towards the roasted side. I liked it and would get it again. A solid choice.
Look a nice brown with a creamy head.
Smell roasted malt and a little sweet.
Taste mainly a roasted taste with a little sweet and finished with some bitterness.
Feel good carbonation with a clean finish.
Drink an easy drinker.

This brew pours a muddy brown one finger head that dissipates to a ring. The nose is of dark fruit and a sort of sour with dark chocolate. The taste is dark fruit bitter chocolalte. The mouthfeel is creamy light. Drinkability is good. This is a good one to enjoy ona regular basis.
