thanks to psprings for sharing this...
pours a dark cola brown color with a small head which needed some help to get going.
very rich aroma of chocolate, coffee nuttiness, a light lactic sourness, ash, caramel, earth (which i now know is the oats) and nearly metallic maltiness (metal dissipates).
the flavor caught me off guard and i had to keep checking the label to make sure this wasn't listed as an old timey porter... chocolate, ample amounts of roasty coffee, brown sugar, chocolate, ash, a touch of sourness similar to coffee and a plethora of floral hops on the finish which linger into the aftertaste to mix with coffee. the medium body leans on full but is in no way sweet or sticky. it's very smooth and creamy yet a nice balance is made from ash and roasty bitterness. there's something very familiar and comforting in this brew...8/4/8/5/18/4.3

Had on tap at Monk's. Good coffee and chocolate notes, some toffee and nut character as well. Very enticing. The taste offered more of the same, plus an almost salty flavor that at first seemed out of place. The salt-like flavor mellowed and there was just a tasty and well malted brown ale. This one hits right where I like brown ales: smooth, creamy, almost a bit chewy, with a dry finish. Really solid beer.
