look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
on tap at 3rd Floor in midtown Houston
L: almost black; super dark amber when held up to sunlight; very creamy 2/5-inch head of light tan; no major stick off the head and no lacing on the way down
S: dark malt notes in the charred wood world ... like being at a barbecue
T: much darker than the English brown ale, get some of the burnt wood notes in the taste; almost no hop presence ... it borders on a stout taste with so much darker, burnt barley notes; sweetness from the malt really balances it out nicely
F: loads of carbonation ... very solid
O: good but different from what I'd expected ... that's on me, though, not the brew -- it's an American, not an English, brown ale, and this style is very new to me. it has some stout-like notes in the nose and the taste, which isn't good or bad ... just what it is.
Serving type: on-tap

Definitely close to a brown ale but could almost be something else. While the color is very dark, it has some amber hues to it. Very malty yet still noticeably hoppy. The chocolate and malty notes are very obvious but seem to be distracted by the Willamette hops which cause a somewhat watery mouthfeel. The smell is very malty but again dispersed by the hops which are not expected by a brown ale.
