Poured out of a bottle. Did not see any freshness date. Pours black with a thick, frothy tan head that dissipates very slowly. A little bit of light penetrates through making the beer a deep amber color. Seems very dark for a brown ale. Epic lacing. Could not pick up much from smelling this beer. Maybe a little burnt sugar. Taste is full of burnt sugar, bready malts, and crisp hops to balance things out. Kind of get a metallic, bitter aftertaste on some sips right after the hops come through. Gonna let this one warm a bit. As it warms the aroma gets much stronger. I smell alcohol,plums, brown sugar, molasses. Just smells sweet with dark fruits. As it warms the kind of metallic aftertaste is still there but tastes more like i expect the hops to taste. Hoppier than any brown ales I have ever tried and I like it! The hops give it a crisp finish balancing the malt out but this beer is still definitely a brown ale. Hops are subtle and give you a crisp finish. Mouthfeel is excellent. Overall, a solid beer and a must try. I like this hoppier style of brown ale than the traditional myself.
