Looks waaay too dark for a brown ale and the head is nearly nonexistent. Nice enough color, though.

I swear this smells like waffles with maple syrup (a good thing IMO) with rich sweetness To be entirely honest, I am not entirely sure I know what molasses smells like but I find it slightly maple-y. Soft smokiness surfaces and there's an appropriate absence of hop scent. Yum!

That crystal/victory malt composition is there stating that, yes, this is a brown ale. After that, however, it's up for grabs. Can Molasses alone add this much complexity? Rich, almost buttery with dark fruit, burnt brown sugar and a faintly charred aftertaste. I really dig this.

While the carbonation eventually comes on, it almost starts flat on my tongue. Other than that, it's undeniably drinkable and one I'll be sure to revisit.

On tap at the brewpub during my drive from Kearney, NE to Munster, IN.

Super dark brown with a tan head. Wasn't the best pour so I can't really say much about it. Pretty darn roasty, sweet, and malty in both the nose and flavor. Slightly woody and chocolaty. Easy drinking and tons of flavor. Big fan of this.

Serving type: on-tap

2010 vintage, recipe #128 written on bottle

a - poured a two-fingers thick rocky tan head into a snifter that left great lacing throughout. the body was dark brown bordering on black.
s - syrup and cocoa.
t - molasses and other malts with some chocolate flavors.
m - thick and chewy, very creamy.
o - now this is one of the best brown ales i've ever had. it may be the best. so flavorful and rich and the mouthfeel is as good as it gets.
