Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Dark brown with a finger of fizzy off white head, a few spots of lacing.
S - Roasted malts, dark fruit, toffee, toast, some earthy and herbal hops.
T - Sweet malt up front, not so roasty, some fig and pum, herbal hop bite, toffee creamy traits on the end.
M - Good feel, not heavy, but a little chewy, goes down easy.
O - This is a decent brown ale, enough complexity and character to be appreciated.

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, served at cellar temp.

Black Tea shade of reddish brown with thin greyish head that recedes quickly.

aroma; rich coffee notes suggest presence of some roasted malt, some sweetish yeastiness and some balancing hops.

mouthfeel: is a little thin.

taste: not quite as malty as some Browns, a light burnt coffee bitterness gives way to a slight cola sweetness.

Notes:if this were a richer, maltier brew it would be outstanding in flavor. lack of lacing is a problem. despite some flaws this is still a good beer..
