Draft at Hi-wire. Dark tea brown pour, half finger of cream colored head. Laces just a bit.

Aroma, some brown sugar, toasted malt. Hazelnut.

Taste, some malty tobacco and brown sugar again. Some tea and herbal notes. Seemed a little sweet a first but seems more balanced after it warmed a bit. Lingers nicely.

Drinks very easily, carbonation and body are about right.
Good stuff, hopefully this place will last a bit longer than Craggie.

A: Pours an opaque yet clear very dark brown in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass along the sides and some garnet red + cola brown highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy foamy dark beige head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of lightly toasted caramel malts along with some slightly lighter nutty malts and just a touch of brown sugar sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of toasted caramel malts with some light nutty malt flavor and light amounts of brown sugar/molasses sweetness. Light amounts of earthy and herbal hops towards the finish but they contribute minimal amounts of bitterness which fade almost immediately.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.Relatively smooth.

O: Fairly well balanced, especially after coming up to temperature. Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Enjoyable.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a muddled brown color, with an off-white, clingy head. Nose of roasted nut sweetness, chocolate notes, and a solid roasted characteristic. Flavors are heavily roasted nut and caramel sweetness. Smooth and light bodied, with a cloying nut sweetness in the aftertaste. The finish is slick and smooth, with a lingering sweetness continuing through.

12 ounce bottle -> New Belgium globe

A - mahogany brown with an unrelenting head of foam that caught me by surprise spilling liberally over the edge of the glass. Not surprisingly, retention and lacing are good.

S - molasses and some coffee

T - molasses, caramel, toffee, cola, chocolate, and coffee. Mild flavor profile.

M - a bit thin with average carbonation.

O - This is a brown ale. Easy to drink. Hard to love, impossible to hate. That about sums it up.
