Bottle sent to me by a friend. Looks like a good choice. Lets find out.

A- Pours a very, very dark brown color barely letting any light through when held up to a light with 3 fingers of thick tan colored head that lingers a while.

S- Smells like nutty, light roasted coffee, with hints of cocoa, and toffee. Smells like it's going to have a deep, rich flavor.

T- Follows nose well. Nice amount of sweet dark caramel / toffee mixed with a small amount of bitterness that comes across like light roasted coffee. It ends with a lingering dark molasses flavor that coats the palate.

M- An easy drinking medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Has a nice smooth silky feel to it.

O- Pretty impressed. Bet it would be better on draft. Love the rich, dark, molasses flavors that really come out as this one warmed up.

Appearance: Dark chocolate brown with orange undertones. Generous lace.

Smell: Typical brown ale smell (American or English). Cocoa/Chocolate and yeasty. Light on molasses unlike some browns.

Taste: Flavor has molasses background which makes up for the lightness on the nose. Hops balance the molasses sweetness fairly well. Bread-y/yeasty, with chocolate and coffee.

Mouthfeel: Given the flavors and aroma, the mouthfeel is a little lighter than expected

Overall: This is a pretty darn good brown ale. Some small tweets with maltyness could really make this beer great.

Had this on tap at the brewery. Was so good I had to bring one home! 22oz. bomber into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

Much darker than most browns. Dark, nearly opaque brown. .5 finger light coffee colored coarse head with moderate retention. Stringy lace with moderate stick. Decent. Nice color.

Nose is nutty. Toffee, caramel, and sweet brown sugar. Real robust and rich. Enticing.

Opens sweet caramel, nutty, toffee, and brown sugar. Malt body becomes more pronounced and richer as this one warms in the mouth. More caramel and toffee notes appear. Sweet brown sugar and some molasses at the end. Finishes slightly grainy. Sweet aftertaste. Again, like the nose, real rich. Great, full flavor.

Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly bubbly in the mouth but smooths out as it warms. Goes down silky with a messy finish and a lingering aftertaste. Drinks bigger than it is and oh so smooth. Amazing!

This is top notch in the style. Real robust nose and taste with an incredible mouthfeel that makes this one drink bigger than it really is. I can see why this beer is the winningest offering from Flossmoor.
