[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]

The pour was a murky dark mahogany brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that was mostly diminishing, leaving behind a medium collar and fair runny lacing.

The aroma was rather mild of toasted dark malts and a light doughy yeast with hints of coffee and a bit of chocolate.

The taste was mildly malty sweet with just a touch of milk chocolate in the beginning, changing slightly to a mildly bitter roasty coffee presence at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time after the swallow, with the light roastiness fading quickly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a few steps light of medium in body with a somewhat watery texture and a mild carbonation.

Overall as Brown Ale's go, I found this one to be a rather average representation of the style...

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark, rich, toffee brown coloring with a thin, wispy, white surface coat of head. Aromas of nut sweetness, toast, toffee, and some chocolate highlights. Smells are subtle, but inviting. Flavors are roast and sweet forward, with a nut and toffee blend to follow, and a hint of coffee and chocolate bitterness into the aftertaste. Light, smooth bodied, with a subtle sweet linger on an otherwise clean, smooth finish. Tasty brew, and the lightness of body makes it very drinkable.

Poured from the bottle into my trusty Guinness pint glass.

A- Pours a gorgeous garnet red with a little bit of tan foam that does not stick around. No lacing to speak of.

S- Yeast, biscuit and pretzel. Lots of sweet malt. Just a hint of alcohol.

T- Tastes pretty much like it smells. Hard sourdough pretzel jumps out at me. Aftertaste is warm and malty.

M- Not as chewy as a stout without being watery.

O- Fantastic beer from a local brewery. I don't know how many of these I could drink in one session but I look forward to buying this one again.
