Delicious. Full-bodied. Complex. Sure, you can say all those things. Wouldn't it be a lot more fun to take a sip of this handcrafted brown ale and come up with your own superlatives? This is the brown ale that beat Newcastle, Sam Adams and more, at the World Beer Championships in Chicago.

Deep brown hue with great clarity. Massive rocky beige head despite a slow pour. Probably an inch thick. After a couple of minutes it fades to a quarter inch. Aroma of dark malt and chestnut. Flavor of dark malt and caramel is prominent. The mouth is smooth and dry.

This beer is above average. Molasses rules the day for me, a taste not usually associated with a brown. Head was HUGE - 4 fingers on the pour. Too much carbonation. The head settles to a .5 finger head of thicker foam that lasts. The finish of this beer is not great.
