Pours a slightly hazy deep brown with amber highlights and a frothy tan head that slowly dissipates, leaving modest lacing.

Citrusy hops meet nutty, deeply toasted malt, toffee, and a hint of pine in the aroma. Malt dominates, but the citrus presence is substantial.

Flavor reveals more nutty, toasted malt dominance, but adds in chocolate toward the finish. Underpinnings of grapefruit form an interesting contrast. The finish is fairly bitter. Floral notes emerge in the aftertaste.

Body and carbonation are moderate, with light alcohol warmth at the finish.

Didn't expect the chocolate notes. Slightly malt dominant, with anintriguing hop addition. Not overly bitter, thanks to the chocolate adding a perception of sweetness.

Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It pours brown with amber highlights. It is capped with an inch of tan head that quickly dissipates.

S - It has a great nutty, earthy chocolate aroma. It is very aromatic.

T - It has a robust, nutty taste to start. Then some milk chocolate flavor comes in for the finish.

M - Medium leaning towards full.

O - This is a great brown ale. The flavors and aromas are fantastic. I have become a huge MadTree fan and cannot wait for it to enter the northern Ohio market.
