look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Clear brown dark tea colored pour released from a 12 oz. browner, under a one fingered tan cratered-surface-of-the-moon head that laces well down the glass.

Scents of Hershey's Chocolate syrup pervade the nose.

Taste is all about tons 'o roasted malts. Creamy, almost stout-like. A brown with some vigor here. Roasted malts overtake the reigns here. Maybe some, ummm, cookie dough jumps into the melee here. A bit of a tacky finish hangs around.

Maybe the Hershey's Syrup essence is now on my brain, because the body is syrup like too. This is quite a creamer drinker.

Last swigs: This may be a bit over the top for a session drinker, but BA kudos for AVERY. Like their motto states: Small brewery, Big Beers. Agreed. Special thanks to fellow BA SkinnyElvis for the bottle.

*** UPDATE ***

Stickin' with me prior review, but just wanna add that there is a bit of a cocoa taste. I upped my Drinkability to a 3 from a 2.5.

Beer is good. Happy big brown beering.
