Poured from the 500mL bottle into a pint glass.

A: The beer is an almost completely opaque dark brown to black color, with just a bit of cola brown at the bottom of the glass coming through. Really nice looking. Head is dark tan and foamy and settles down to just a foamy residue after a minute.

S: Lots of roasted malt and burned read character. Reminds me of a bakery kiln after use - some dark chocolate, bittersweet smoky remains of malty and bready baked items that are also noticeable. A bit of molasses in there. Just heavenly aroma.

T: A bit different from the smell in that there is a lot less roasted character and almost no burned or smoky character. Very nice bread and chocolate notes in there with a luscious creamy sweetness that penetrates through everything. Light bitterness on the back end, like a nicely baked cookie - sweet enough yet the crispiness underneath lets you know it was baked somewhere.

This is an amazingly lovely brew. One of the best I've had in some time, and I love brown ales. This does the style justice and more.
