12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Dark brown with a one-finger head that quickly settles
S: Malty, nutty, dry
T: Matches the nose. A large dose of malt and nuts, dry without much additional complexity
M: Light to medium-bodied, dry, somewhat simple
O: This needs a bit of sweetness or a bit of hop complexity to step it up a notch. Perfectly drinkable if simple now, but it seems like it's a good base upon which so much could be added

L-Medium brown, light head

S-Pretty rich, def some grain and graham crackery sweetness

T-Fairly robust for a brown, yet finishes crisp. I really liked the balance here.

F-On the thicker side, but not syrupy.

O-I really enjoyed this beer. It was great with food as well as without. Very versatile. One of my more favorite browns (upslope is good, too). I'm a bit confused by The Bros rating here; I think this is a solidly "good" beer (mid 80's score worthy). JMHO

Rich malt aromas with traces of chocolate and graham cracker. Pours brilliant brown under a 2” finely bubbled tan tinted white foam cap. Light caramel flavors with traces of chocolate and light grains. Medium carbonation and body with a bright, crisp finish.
