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.

Poured into a shaker. Not a ton of head, fades to just a skiff. Laces well, though.

Aroma is sweet chocolate and malt. Not a big hop presence.

Flavor is big and rich, without the crappy country songs. Sweet, molasses flavors. Again almost no hop presence, with just enough bitterness to keep the brew from hanging around in the aftertaste. Not bad, and easy to drink for a big brew. Probably a tad too sweet for more than one, though.

Mouthfeel is big, rich, oily, clingy... In short, it screams "big alcohol beer here!" Yet for all that, it isn't work to drink it.

Not bad. It's unapologetically big and sweet. I've had better big browns, but I've had worse too wouldn't drink it often, and it'd probably work better in the fall, but it's worth trying.
