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?

A - Deep brown with a finger and a half head

S - Chocolate notes

T - Rich malt flavor with the suggestion of brown ale, but deeper, slightly sweeter.

M - A bit on the thin side for the depth of color

O - Billed by the brewery as a "Belgian-style Brown Ale". Rich dark-roast malt flavor reminiscent of a Porter. Interesting combination of styles and very drinkable.

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.
