This beer pours a clear dark brow with a modest head. The aromas are of dark chocolate, uncooked grain, root beer, and a hit of smoke. The most striking thing about the flavor is how much more bitter it is than I was expecting. I get bitter dark chocolate, rum, licorice, and a very odd, very bitter aftertaste. The mouthfeeI l is quite thin, with a touch of astringency. Overall I was let down by this beer. I love hop bitterness, but I do not want to much in a brown ale.

pours a dark, dark garnet. looks clear from what i can see, with no head a a little lacing.

my nose is acting up a bit, but it smells roasty. taste is roasted coffee with malt sweetness.

mouthfeel is a bit creamy but clean.

nice, simple brown ale. i like it.
