[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.

A: Pours a crystal clear very dark brown in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy beige head that reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of nutty malts with lighter notes of caramel sweetness. Very light hints of chocolate and earthiness.
T: Upfront there is a moderate to strong flavor of slightly sweet chocolate malts with a light note of caramel. There is a light flavor of nuts and just a hint of earthy hops. Minimal amounts of bitterness in the finish.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Easy to drink and sessionable - not too nutty in flavor but a decent amount of nutty aromas. Very well hidden alcohol and nice easy to enjoy flavors.
