Brewers reserve on-tap at Eureka cafe. Served in a nonic pint glass.

A: Pours a deep brown with hues of red peaking through the glass. Thin off-white head remains after the beer settles. Almost coats the glass, leaving a sponge-like lacing.

S: Smell is subdued, with roasted sweetness the only aroma really coming through.

T: Taste is very nice. Much more balanced then other brown ales I have (which are always a bit too sweet for my liking). Caramelized malty sweetness is balanced by a significant coffee-like roasted bitterness. Very enjoyable flavor profile.

M: Mouthfeel is quite light for the flavor. Probably what keeps it from being a porter or stout. Medium body with light carbonation and a lingering bitterness.

D: The thinner mouthfeel distinguishes this beer from a porter or stout, and makes adds to the drinkability
