3.06/5  rDev -14.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - Dark brown, a hint of red. Appears clear. Virtually no head.

Smell - Moderately strong dark malt aroma. Chocolate, coffee, hazelnut.

Taste - Principally dark malt. Chocolate and hazelnut. Touch of burnt toast. Kind of watery. A little lemony hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium.

Overall - Not awful, just not a stand out. Tends toward the quaffable.

Enjoyed at Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse.

This pint arrived at my table with a one finger head still in place. Eventually this broke down and was I left with some swirls of foam and a little lacing.

The smell was brown ale all the way...malts and nuts and coffee.

The taste is like the nose...with malts being at the fore. It is nicely balanced between sweet and bitter.

Mouth feel is medium with medium carbonation.

Overall not a bad pint to be enjoyed with some good BBQ on a Saturday afternoon. It would make an fairly decent session beer on a cool fall afternoon.
