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.
