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.
