really nice rocky head head with staying power. great lacing down my glass.

The nose is delicate as to be expected but some nice gentle hop and sweet toasted malts.

the taste is spot on. nothing over the top here for an american brown. starts out with slight sweetness, oaty and i get a hint of vanilla. hops come in nicely in finish to dry out and quench palate.

the mouthfeel is medium to light in a good way, for me some browns are too big and a little heavy for quaffing a few. carbonation is tight with tiny bubble that really help envelope the tongue.

Overall I would say this beer is excellent. Really a well polished brown that leaves you wanting many more. tons of flavors but restrained to where you can drink a number of pints and keep enjoying. would pair well with good meal and not overtake experience.

GO Black Hog!

On tap at Barley Vine. Pours a dark brownish black with no head. Some lacing. The aroma is earthy with some vanilla, and caramel. The taste is more of the same. Lots of caramel, vanilla, and bready malts. Floral hop notes with a lot of earthiness. Hints of coffee. Slightly nutty. Slick mouthfeel and medium bodied. Overall, decent Brown ale.

On tap at the Engine Room in Mystic CT
Deep brown color with ruby highlights. Great caramel and chocolate notes. Light earthy hop but this leans heavy on the malt side of things. Tasty night cap.
