L: Poured a lovely, rich amber color with a very thick cream colored head. Good lace left on the glass throughout the drink, likewise with the head. Plenty of dancing carbonation bubbles from top to bottom. Excellent look to it.

S: Oaky smell, earthy scent. A touch of roasted malts and spice as well. Simple and pleasant. Nothing outstanding though.

T: What an excellent taste. Spice, caramel, and some bitter hops right up front, settles into a nice blend of nut, and toffee in the middle. Subtle smooth bit of oak finishes her off with a slight hint of chocolate sweetness. Aftertaste of roasted malts linger. Really interesting and complex group of flavors but balanced very well.

F: Dry but also chewy on the back end. Doesn't finish overly dry but does start out that way. Got a decent bitterness and carbonation bite to it.

O: A very good Brown Ale. All the flavors are there from the earthy roasted malts to the nuttiness. However there are some well masked subtleties to it like the bit of chocolate and black coffee on the back end. Exceptional beer to look at with some good flavor.

Some people would love this. I am not a coffee drinker. I'm getting a nasty, bitter, black coffee bite that I don't care for. There are a lot of interesting different flavors here, but it's not my cup of coffee.
