3.9/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours an opaque dark brown with a tan head. The head isn't big and dissipates quickly, but leaves decent lacing

Smell: Coffee, roasted malt, molasses, brown sugar, roasted nuts.

Taste: Nutty coffee, roasted nuts, sweet malty caramel.

Mouthfeel: Creamy.

This may be the best brown ale I've ever had. It leaves me licking my lips and wanting more. It's a little too heavy for a session beer, but definately an outstanding beer. This is my first Brooklyn brand beer and I look forward to trying more.

Pours a dark brown color. A tan head with good retention.
The smell is very subdued. I'm not getting much here. A little bit of malty caramel. The taste is roasted with some caramel, toffee, and even some fruits. The taste is complex, it's just not all that great to me. Medium body and carbonation.

It's an all right beer, but not one of my favorites from Brooklyn at all.
