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.

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.
