Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

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.
