Aroma is malty along a strong hint of sweetness, probably from the molasses. The flavor is caramel and malty and has a heavy sweetness from the molasses. Decent ale although the molasses made it a bit too sweet for my tastes.

(bottle purchased right from Flossmoor Station - poured into a British pint)

A: just about no head on the pour - really strange... super dark brown with garnet edges... no lace... nice color - on point - about all that can be lauded

S: dark milk chocolate with roasted almonds... no hop notes... woody, outdoorsy aromas... fair amount of espresso powder on the back end... potent and enchanting shit

T: malty as hell, moderate roasty toast and bitterness... in a nutshell, moderately bitter dark chocolate covering hazelnuts... what's great and interesting here is how there's a subtle caramel sweetness, doing a decent job poking out through the cracks in the nutshell top, eventually supplanting the roast in the aftertaste, flaring hard but never rounding out and sticking like syrup

M: flows about as thick as its 1.023 FG, however, the hard roasted notes and I suppose the alcohol, to an extent, chisel some of the flat, dumpy edges to it, so it doesn't end up a viscous drag... yeah, it has a barleywine type of constitution

O: this bottled version blew the draft version I had at the brewpub out of the water!... I got a celery/parsley green flavor in that - not here from the bottle - just nutty, bittersweet, malty loveliness... just about everything one could want and what should be in an American Brown Ale - nice work, Flossy!

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.
