A - Root beer body with a root beer head, amber highlights. Light lacing.
S - Big malts up front bring forth a caramel, with notes reminding me of waking up to coffee brewing a few rooms away. I'm bummed I read the description at the top of the page because all I'm smelling is a scotch ale now. Good smelling brew tho.
T - It's a big brown at 7.2%, and it's not the cleanest 7.2% I've ever ran into.... However, the bitterness is nice and not very expected with the style. Bold malts and a nice hop-profile make this a stand out, but it could be toned down a bit to lend towards drinkability.
M - Fizzy at first but once it mellows it rounds itself out a little more. Good body, but the carbonation... not so much.
D - ABV hinders an otherwise pretty drinkable beer. If this were a little more subdued I'd be all over it. I like the hop profile a lot but there are a few browns I'd pick over this.
Notes: I don't know what I should review this as. It's hardly a brown. It's as much a brown as it is a porter, a strong ale, an ipa, a scotch ale... I guess it looks brown?
