From 09/07/14 notes. 16 oz. pour in a snifter at The Jeffrey in NYC. Have definitely had this before but apparently never reviewed it.

Pours a dark brown color with one inch of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Roasted malts, milk chocolate, vanilla, cream, marshmellows. Taste is sweeter, has some chocolate cake taste to it. Medium body and low carbonation, smooth and creamy and very easy to drink.

Overall very simple but very good and super drinkable. Not a whole lot going on but if you like sweet chocolate and cream/vanilla, a very good and drinkable brown ale. Worth checking out for sure.

A highly quaff-able, roast-y brown ale.

Deep dark brown hue, burned wood nose, and easy-to-drink 5.5 ABV = one of my favorite brown ales, along with Maduro, Durty Mud, Tumbler.

Yay dogs, yay beer!
