Much thanks to Ricardo for getting me this brew!

A: Very dark brown with a full coffee and cream head.

S: Floury and bready. There is a slight spice note with perhaps a touch of raisin or brown sugar.

T: Tasty, with dark bread, toffee and perhaps a tiny hint of black tea. There is a strong bitterness in the finish, with a touch of an earthy flavor.

M: Medium in body, the carbonation seems really high. The finish is dry.. very dry. The finish seems strange, long lasting bitterness and dryness takes away from the brew.

O: Overall good, but the mouthfeel throws it a bit out of whack.

Pours a thick layer of creamy tan head. Color is a dark caramel brown. Leaves some lace.

Flavor profile: Sweet at first. Kind of like candy and syrup. Chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla. Some roasted notes with hints of coffee. Maybe some brown sugar.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth. Medium bodied. Ends a little dry and roasted.

Overall, a nice drinking brown. It tastes a little bigger than a regular brown ale. Very flavorful.
