My one dark beer during this visit to Brown’s in downtown Troy, this brew is a dark chocolatey brown with a decent dark tan cover that clings to the glass like a blanket. The aroma offers a deep chocolate malt with a pleasant herbal hop. Very nice. The flavor comes on with a somewhat less aggressive chocolate biscuit. The body is notably lighter than the aroma suggested, medium-light with a glassy feel that includes a fair tingly carbonation. The herbal hop remains and makes for an interesting marriage with the chocolate bread ideas present here. Not a bad flavor but I would enjoy this so much more with a little more chewiness. The carbonation and light body seem to quickly carry away the flavor and leaves it a bit watered down. But still, the basic flavors do linger enough to make this enjoyable, I just wish it lived up to the nose hit. I might say that there’s a little charcoal edge but it’s subtle. The flavor seems to revive a little as you go but I think this would benefit from less sharp watery notes and more mellow chocolatey ones. Not bad at all.

A - Served a deep dark black color with some brown hues around the edges. There is a finger of off-white head atop that fades down to a super thin ring leaving behind a bit of lace.

S - Aroma is full of roasted and lightly burnt sweet caramel malt. There is some chocolate and coffee as well in the background.

T - Starts off with brunt sweet caramel malt with lots of roasted flavors mixing in. There is also a bit of chocolate in the background. Through the middle some more burnt flavor comes through with a bit of hop flavor. The finish adds a bit of coffee flavor with a touch of bitterness that lingers nicely.

M - Medium bodied with moderate-low carbonation. Feels smooth and just a touch creamy. There is some nice lingering roasted and burnt flavors that create a touch of dryness.

D - Very drinkable. Tastes really well balanced with a lot of roasted and burnt flavors that are really tasty. Very nice coffee and chocolate flavors mixed in.
