First beer I have ever had to pour out after only a few sips. Maybe it gets better with age but the Rum was so overbearing I didn't even taste a brown ale, just booze.

Pours a cloudy, brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of alcohol, strong sweet malt, sugar, hint of hops, and hint of nut. Fits the style of an American Brown Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a strong dryness. Tastes of alcohol, strong sweet malt, hint of yeast, hint of hop, slight metallic notes, and a sugar. Overall, decent beer, strong body and aroma, but the metallic and sugar flavors hurt.
