Pours the color and thickness (or thin) of black plain coffe. Head dissipates quick. Smells hoppy. Tastes hoppy for a brown ale, but I think it was supposed to. Overall a decent beer but nothing I would go out of my way for.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Lagunitas mason jar glass. Couldn’t locate the date code, but it was a relatively-fresh, seasonal release. Consumed on February 14, 2015.

L: Deep amber to amber brown in color. Eggshell white head; nice lacing with good clarity.

S: Nose is roasted malt with nutty undertones. An impressive combination of caramel malt and citrus / piney hops, wet and green smelling if that makes sense.

T: Pine, nutty, brown sugar, caramelized malts. Picking up some raisin with more earthy hops. Rustic brown bread crust.

F: Robust but slick mouthfeel, bitterness lingers after each sip; sticky, slightly sweet aftertaste, medium carbonation.

Overall: A well-done version of a hoppy brown ale.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours clear brown until the end and I fail to save my beer from a slosh of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Ends up being pretty murky. Medium off-white head. Thick collar persists.

Smell - Citrus hops when it's cold. Turns a little more towards pine as it warms. The brown malts smell very nutty.

Taste - Hops are much less intense. A hint of them at the start, but it's much more an emphasis on the malt. Toasted malt turns to light chocolate and even some coffee. Nuttier in the back end. Very slight bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Drinks well enough, but it's a little bigger than it really needs to be.

Overall - Solid, if not really interesting.
