This is the base beer for a few of the Buddhas limited release brews. A very good version of a fairly mundane style.

Nice toasty smell, appearance is a fairly dark brown color and the taste balances roasted malt and sweetness very well. Overall a solid brown ale that is sure to please those that like the style.

A- it was kinda dark in the bar, but it was a nice dark brown, looked cloudy, and nice tan head.

S- I'm getting a lot of caramel, some chocolate, nuttiness, little grainy maybe and some hops hiding underneath everything.

T- taste of big caramel, toffee, finishes dry from the hops, very interesting as it warms, the dark fruits come out, plumbs, And sweet raisins.

M- medium body, pretty smooth, and dry.

O- overall I really enjoyed this beer, I really enjoyed the change as it warmed up. Very interesting.

On tap at Funky Buddha 5/22/2014.

A- Dark brown body with a half finger off-white head with little retention, not much lacing. Becomes quite placid really.

S- Initially, a nice nuttiness and brown sugar sweetness that is nice, that switches over to a nice smooth darker malt sweetness evoking a bit of coffee as well. On the sweeter side.

F- Conversely to the nose, the palate brings a black coffee flavour, though not as big as natural coffee additions that is a nice bitter counterpart to the sweet brown sugar and nuttiness. A bit of dark fruits on the backend, reminding me of raisins and cherry skins. Fairly solid, nothing is very strong or intense but this is certainly a drinkable brew.

M- Lighter bodied, not watery but on the thinner side. Lower on carbonation for the style, but not enough to detract significantly from my enjoyment of this.

O- Solid brown ale, the dark fruits add an interesting dimension to an otherwise straightforward brown ale.
