Seriously one of the best beers I have had ever...
It comes in a can which is just absurd but what ever haha...
It pours a deep dark chocolate brown with a thick creamy smooth head that is a nice tan, the lace is sticky but thin and leave a nice film on the surface....
The smell is of a roasted malt with some chocolate and maybe cherry notes....
The taste is spot on with my ideal brown sweet yet tart like a good chocolate perfectly balanced with a mild mild hop when it first hits your tongue but then its right to a deep deep chocolate malt with some coffee under tone the finish is dry but sweet and rich....
consistency wise it is just right too again it is a bit dry at the end but isn't bitter so its ok, it leaves you wanting another drink.
Drinkability is perfect for a heavy deep dark beer I could drink these all night and not get sick of it. It just goes down so easy and nice and it is my comfort food because in my eyes it is everything a brown should be.

Appearance: Excellent white lacing and decent white foam. Carbonation is extra active and bubble. Bright beautiful ruby Red. My only issue is that it is red and not brown...
Smell: Roasted toffee and nuts. Very fresh as well and slightly mineral-like.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Bitter lemon rind with a sweet caramel finish. A bit too bitter and first, but it mellows out nicely in the finish with a honey-like mouthfeel. Overall, the mouthfeel is a tad thin, but much better at the end.
Overall Drinkability: A beer that just gets better.

This is only available in cans. For this review I poured it into a pint glass, but I often drink from the can and it is just as good.
A - A nice copper/brown color with a little bit of head that eventually disappears.
S - The description on the can itself says that it has "hints of caramel and chocolate" and you can certainly detect hints of them in the aroma.
T - The taste is amazing, there is no bitterness at all, it is very smooth. You can also taste the chocolate and caramel that are noted as ingredients, along with the obvious nut flavor that a brown should have, making this not only a very easy drink, but a very delicious one too.
Overall, this is the best beer I've had. The taste is the best part, as it should be. I love that there is no bitterness and that it has hints of sweets to give it such a good flavor.

12 oz. can given to me as a sample from a distributor. Aggressively poured into a shaker pint... really more of a very dark amber than brown, with a thin off-white head and little retention. Decent amounts of thin lacing.
Aroma is very light. Caramel/maple, roasted grains. A little bit of a crackery type flavor as well. Even these are pretty thin.
Slightly sweet, mildly nutty flavor. Profile is very thin. Hint of spicy hoppiness.
Light-medium body, well carbonated. Very slick and oily mouthfeel that's just a tad chewy.
Meh. This isn't a bad beer, it's just not a good one. Very thin in flavor and mouthfeel. Easy to drink, but then again so is water. I'm glad this was a free sample, because I wouldn't pay for it.
