Pours a nice ruby-brown, with a thick and sudsy head of off-white bubbles. Lace is detailed and lovely, too.

Aroma is chocolate malts up front, with a little woodsy spice (cedary, almost). But it's the chocolate that gets me front and center. Excellent!

Taste is deliciously malty chocolate and a hint of bittering hops at the finish. It's like a rich bittersweet cocoa tone. I also get a touch of a slight burnt flavor, as well as the wood hinted at in the aroma. All-in-all, a distinctively complex, flavorful, and an excellent (even noteworthy) brown ale.

Poured into a non-chilled pint.

Perfect clarity with a nice, thick, light biege collar of foam that had dissipated within a couple minutes. Not much on the nose, but that first sip was so sweet and malty I wasn't too sure about my selection. Also it was thicker than expected on the tongue. Fortunately, and surprisingly, it finished very clean with every sip better than the next. Brown isn't my favorite style but I will revisit this one soon.
