A - Pours a dark brown with a off-white two finger head.
S - Sweet and roasted with vanilla.
T - Malt and earthy. Roasted coffee and almost a porter flavor. Subtle bitter hops.
M - Light body and not to much carbonation.
O - A pretty good beer. Nice marriage of brown ale and porter. Used a can for my chili and really added to the flavor.

Thanks to crapturds (reddit) for this one, more great canned craft beer.
Pours an off-white creamy semi thick almost 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, lots of nice frothy lacing, very dark molasses brown colored beer.
Nose nice toasty brown malts, plenty of caramel and nutty aromas, little toffee and biscuit, almost butterscotch candy and brittle but not super sweet candy like or syrupy, hint of a coffee. Faint touch of an earthy hop.
Taste starts with more toasty brown malts, plenty more caramel and toffee, a little nutty, a little chewy like malt almost, hint of coffee like roast. Hops come through more than I thought, quite bitter with an herbal earthy hop character that even gets a little mineral note. Finish is drier and very bitter, more earthy herbal like hops, little mineral and menthol like notes with hint of booze.
Mouth is med bod, little creamy and chewy, nice fluffy carb, hint of booze.
Overall not bad, I really like the malts, but the hops on the end and finish are a little much for what I was expecting for the delicious malt flavors. Still pretty tasty though.

On-tap at Parkers Blue Ash Tavern, Cincinnati, OH
A: The beer is clear very dark amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high thin head covering the surface that died down, consistently leaving a thin head and lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of nutty malts. Neither sweetness nor bitterness are perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a bold brown ale that delivers lots of nutty aromas and flavors. This would pair really well with a burger.
Serving type: on-tap
