A: Deep chocolate brown in color with a nice light brown head.

S: Light fruit, and a touch of powdered cocoa. Almost like a chocolate cherry thing going on, some slight bread aroma as well as caramel.

T: Caramel malt, and a bready flavor with roasted malt and a touch of coffee in the finish. Some decent sweetness, as well as perhaps something English in the finish.

M: Medium in body with moderate carbonation. The carbonation is fairly fine in size, and there is a bit of a linger in the finish.

O: Overall a pretty tasty brown with a bit of a twist. I've been fairly skeptical of this brewery, but this (616 characters)

Appearances can be deceiving:

A very dark brown with a nice tan head.

Initial taste is of a light chocolate stout. So where's the Belgian element that I paid for?

(Not present).

So its a very good brown ale, with a thicker mouthfeel; that's all. I could see drinking a lot of this if that was the style I wanted.

So why the claim to be something else? (356 characters)

Dark brown where no light passes through the glass. Beige head with no lingering lace (it's streaky).

Dark, rich molasses aroma. Fresh smell. There's a bit of alcohol to the nose as well.

The flavor features a strong coffee element. It's not as sweet as the smell suggests, although I do get some cocoa notes. I also note some sourness in the background. Short aftertaste. The body is thinner than I would like and the high carbonation exacerbates this. (455 characters)
