Poured into a pint glass. This is a special review for me as I am using this beer to compare it to my first homebrew (obviously a brown ale). I am going to include a review for my beer in parentheses below each category.
3.5 A: Dark brown. Hard to see through, but it is indeed quite clear. Poor to average head retention and minimal lacing.
(A: Hazy almost black color. Good head retention and an obscene amount of lacing. - 4.5)
3.5 S: Big nutty aroma. Dark caramel malts. Not much else.
(S: Not as strong as I'd like. Some nutiness and to a larger extent caramel. Also a tinge of alcohol. - 3.5)
3.5 T: Nut flavor dominates. Surprisingly not much sweetness as it has a minimal amount of caramel flavor. Good balance, though hop character does not distiguish itself much.
(T: Well balanced between hops and malts. Once again nuts and caramel. Alcohol to some extent. Pretty good overall. - 3.5)
3.5 M: Medium body, good carbonation, but not as creamy as I'd like.
(M: Heavy medium body. Perhaps a little under carbonated. Creamy and a bit chewy. - 4.0)
4.0 D: Not bad, sessionable, and no major weaknesses. Problem is that there are also no major strengths.
(D: Good enough to beat out any macro. I'm happy with the results. I learned a lot from brewing this and I'm confident that my next batch (a weizenbock currently fermenting) is going to kick ass. - 4.0)

Poured this into a glass, it has a Mahogany color body with thin head. The aroma has roasty malt and a little hop coming from it. The taste has a roasty, chocolaty up front and a little hop towards the back. The malt is more dominant than the hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good beer.
