Hands down my favorite beer I have ever tried. I made an account just to review it. It's been in my head for months...

The flavor is rich and interesting. It mixes the tastes of caramel, coffee, and nuts in a very smooth drink with a wonderful aftertaste. The alcohol content is also pleasantly high.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this at a local restaurant, not one I would usually pick up but gave it a try. Came out in pint glass, not sure if this came from bottle or tap.

The appearance was outstanding, dark with beautiful head. But it basically had no taste. Finished about 1/4 of it and that was it.

Can't recommend this one.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

22 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, deep, dark mahogany brown color with three quarters of a finger of off-white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that partially covered the top of the beer,

Aroma: Very malty and bready with strong notes of chocolate and molasses.

Taste: Again, very malty, but with some notes of roasted barley. Some smokiness, which is nice, but not overpowering like a rauchbier. There’s also notes of chocolate and caramel. Slightly sweet in the middle, finished with some slight hoppy bitterness. Very well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Medium thin, slightly watery. Hardly no carbonation. With an ABV of 6.3%, there’s just a very slight hint of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Very solid brown ale. Very tasty, nicely balanced and very easy to drink. I’d be very happy to have this beer again.

Poured this brew from a 22oz bomber. Its a dark ale with a quickly dissipating tan head. In the light this shit is a beautiful dark red. Really amazing color. Excited carbonation. Pretty nice aroma too quite sweet and malty, molasses. The hops are definitely coming through as well. It's a very nice drinkable beer. Chocolate, roasted malt, and some alcohol but it's hard to really describe the flavor because it's kinda nondescript but pleasant. When this first hit my palate it came across as quite bitter but I adjusted to it after two or three sips and it becomes quite drinkable. I'm a hop head, this isn't a hoppy beer but I thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless. It's a great brown Ale!

A - brown. That's about it. Amber brown if I want to sound witty. Lacing covers the until glass but does not linger.

S- Chocolate. Not desert chocolate but chocolate malt with hops. Also get some sugar notes. It smells sweet and pleasing.

T - The taste is not like the smell. In a good way though. The taste is unsweetened chocolate and burnt molasses. The hops presence is not overwhelming. It is full bodied and creamy.
