This was a tryout from a mix-pack I bought. Local (in-state) brewery, and it's a brown ale, what could go wrong?
On the pour, it's got great colour. Nose is gorgeous, malt and bread and yeast. The taste doesn't follow the nose as much, there is some hops (not bad) but the roast gets a little too bitter as the flavour hits the back of my palate. Finish is just too much on the bitter side. Mouthfeel is OK, maybe a little too carbonated but no real foul.
Overall, I was not impressed.

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.
