Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance- The beer is served as a deep brown colored brew with a small cream colored head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a roasted malt and chocolate aroma with a nice presence of a caramel smell. With these aromas there are some lighter herbal and nut like smells, producing a rather standard brown ale type smell.
Taste- the taste begins with flavors of a roasted malt and a stronger presence of a bitter coffee and some notes of chocolate. While initially on the more bitter and malty side some caramel soon works work its way to the tongue balancing out the roasted and coffee flavors rather nicely. These flavors last largely to the end of the taste were some notes of an earthy and herbal hop come to the tongue, leaving a nice roasted and slightly bitter but overall balanced flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was smooth and creamy with a carbonation level that was on the average side. The smooth body was great for the roasted flavor of the brew, while the carbonation kept it more on the refreshing side and helped to qualm some of the bitterness allowing it to mingle well with the lighter caramel flavors.
Overall – A fairly nice, not too sweet, brown ale that is a little more on the bitter and dry side.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass. Date stamp not on bottle, but I see the spot for it on the label.
Appearance: Clear Dark amber to deep copper. Thin persistent tan head. Thick strands of persistent lacing.
Smell: Roasted malt, burnt sugar, cocoa powder, root beer.
Taste: Initial sweetness with caramel, burnt sugar, toffee. Hoppy finish of pine, black coffee, and English bittering hops.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, spicy on the tongue. Sticky on the teeth.
Overall/Drinkability: A very interesting combo of strong malts and bittering hops. Tasty, but didn't pair well with pizza. Still, full flavored and I look forward to another. Interestingly, one per evening for me with this one.

The bottle claimed something to the effect of "dark beer specialists", so I had my hopes up. I was not disappointed. The beer pours out a beautiful, clear ruddy brown with a nice cap of creamy tan head. It clings to the glass and leaves nice lacing. Aroma-wise this one is spot-on. Dark caramel and roasted nuts play off each other with just a little hint of earthy hops to round it out. Flavor-wise, this one is great. The hops take a more dominant role but the balance becomes much better and enjoyable. There's a little bit of fizz from the carbonation but it has a nice weight to it and is mostly smooth on the palate. An under-appreciated style, frequently butchered. This is just about perfect.

3.28/5 rDev -11.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Look: A LOT of head. Light tan in color and very fluffy. Head sticks around a while. Looks like a cream soda, almost. Has a deep, amber, reddish color with a lot of bubbles.
Smell: A little hoppy, with a hint of roasted nuts and chocolate. Almost has a slight scent of cream soda as well as it's looks.
Taste: Roasted nuts upfront, with just a very light hint of dark, unsweetened chocolate. A slight hop finish.
Feel: Very carbonated, light bodied.
Overall: The beer looks great, smells great, Tastes, pretty good, and overall, I'd consider it good to go. Not something I'd typically drink, but pretty good. I'd buy it again.
