Nose: biscuit, fruity esters, nuts, rich dark malts.
Brilliant chestnut with a 1" tan tinted off-white head. Lacy.
Palate: Rich malt and grain spice, chocolate, and some mild roast, drying on the finish.
Medium body, medium carbonation, a smidgen too sweet up front, a little more roast than necessary.

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.
