A - Pours a thin translucent blown with slim head that left minimal lacing behind.
S - Smokey malt with a strong nose of chocolate and coffe note.
T - Some better coffe and chocolate notes are overpowering upfront. There is a bit of carmel malts and come hops that give a very subtle bitterness. Coffe and chocolate overpower.
M - Hard to cal this a lighter beer, but hard to call it medium bodied. Thought it almost seemed watered down although the taste was not watery.
O - Not my favorite style, but I thought it was a bit too overpwoered but the chocolate and coffee.

Poured a nice rich brown with a one finger tan head. It looks quite nice and inviting. Scents of bready malt, caramel, brown sugar and slight alcohol. A very sweet aroma for a brown ale, high in the sugary aromas but still with a nice hit of bready malt. The alcohol was surprising, but overall not a bad aroma profile. Flavor begins with caramel, toffee and brown sugar flavors that carry throughout. In the middle undertones of nuttiness and toasted malt appear which are nice, but not as apparent as they should be in a brown ale. The finish is sweet, but with a more overt presence of the nutty and toasted flavors as well. Aftertaste is nutty and toasted malt. A very sweet flavor profile for a brown ale, quite malty but not as bready, nutty and toasty as I like. Still not bad. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and stick with moderate carbonation. It's a good feel that compliments the malty nature of the flavor profile quite well. Pretty good. Overall this is a good American Brown Ale. It's got a nice bready, malty nose and a sweet, malty flavor profile and mouthfeel that works in the flavor's favor. I just wish there was a touch more toasted malt and nut-like flavors, but otherwise it's a solid brown.

Delightfully malty, and delicious. have enjoyed it on tap and from the can. Of course, the tap is better, but the can is available in my home! Clean and crisp tasting. Pours nicely into glass, serves well. enjoy saying that I am drinking moose drool, but more importantly I enjoy the taste

Poured from a bottle into a plastic cup (all they had at the Central Market cafe). Color is dark amber with a nice amber note in the light. Fluffy head that quickly disappears, but good small bubble support.
Enjoyed the toasted nuts and the chocolate with caramel as others have mentioned. A good mix for a brown ale.
Chocolate and nuts in the flavor are really good. The mouth is a little thin, but not as badly as some failed brown ales. This was a refreshing, enjoyable beer that I will definitely grab in the future.
