Almost root beer like in color this brown ale is nicely rich in hue with a thin and bubbly head.

The aroma is of dry chocolate, roasted coffee and biscuity malt. Well done on the scent but it's rather weak.

Nice roasted body hits the tongue with coffee and distant chocolate. Roasted malt and/or coffee hits first and the finish is a bit watery. There's a nice chocolatey after taste that in some respects is as good as the roasted fore taste.

Overall, I like it. It may haves some weaknesses but it is what it is, a good brown ale.
