Appearance: VERY dark brown, not quite opaque. Slight reddish tint through light. Lots of effervescence and a rocky, tan head. Nice, frothy cap retention, lacing lasts & lasts.

Aroma: Caramel malts. Flinty, slightly roasty. Slight hint of fruitiness. Apricot? Pear?

Taste: Tart & roasty arrival; tart & astringent. Tilted slightly toward malt on balance. Goes fruity mid-palate, then tart & astringent roasty finish.

Mouthfeel: Solidly mid-weight. Astringent. Significant carbonation.

Overall: This is more what I think of when I think of a brown ale. In fact, this is nearly a porter. Very much like Turbodog, but less sweet, and having that Brooklyn ale yeast. They seem to have a house style. Interesting that this has a little wheat in the grain bill.

Purchased from one of the local grocery stores.

A: A nice dark brown but has slight head and retention.

S: Malt forward with some hop and a little bit of chocolate. Slightly floral.

T: Malty with a small amount of hop bitterness.

M: Smooth with some richness. Nice carbonation.

O: Solid beer. Not the best Brown ale I've ever had, but still good.

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.
