Pour into a Russian River glass on 9/23/11.
Pours a very dark brown with little light coming through the glass when held to the light. Foam is cream in color and about one and a half fingers worth. Little lacing but it does have some resin on the glass. Nice presentation but I would like to have seen some more lacing on this.
Smell is tons of roasted malt and I definitely get the syrup as well. Sweet with a nice roast finish and some bitter sour cold coffee finish. Nice I like it.
Taste is a lot the same but the tarty coffee flavor comes through a little more. Sweet malt charred malt flavor makes this a nice chilly Minnesota day treat.
Mouth feel is medium on this one. Heavier then I thought it was going to be but it works very nicely. Smooth with no bite. Booze is nonexistent.
Overall I really dig this brew. It was a little tarty at first but its really growing on me. I would like to try this one fresh and see how well the flavors have changed.

Served in a perfect pint glass
A - It is a ruddy brown color with amber highlights. It is topped with an inch of mocha head.
S - I smell some sweet chocolate and the maple syrup. It does have a nutty smell to it, as well.
T - This beer starts out sweet with a touch of alcohol. Then it finishes with earthy, nutty brown ale flavors. The finish has enough bitterness to cancel out the sweetness up front.
M - Medium to full.
O - This is one flavorful brown ale. It gives me a nice warming sensation on a chilly fall day. It is perfect for today's weather.
