12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass

A- a very, very dark mahogany color. Some clarity when held to light. A light khaki head dissipates kinda quick

S- Toasty malts, caramel/brown sugar sweetness, a light nut, and some english hops.

T- A light combination of the sweetness, combines with a toasty malt and cocoa flavor. Some earthy hops and fruity esters finish things out.

M- Medium bodied, and lightly carbonated.

O- A very drinkable and accessible brown ale. Nothing earth shattering, but tasty, and well done.

Another great brew from Dr. of Psychology friend.

This brown ale pours a dark mahogany color with a decent head of off white foam that dissipates to a thin ting and light lacing. Nose of nuts, roasted malts, sweet dark chocolate, and mild hops. Flavors follow the nose with sweet toasted malts and light chocolate notes blending with a light raisin flavor on the back somewhat akin to a bock flavor. Light hop bitterness comes in on the aftertaste rounding this FINE brown ale out between roasted chocolate malt flavors and subtle hop notes. Smooth mouth feel and moderate carbonation. Excellent.

I just finished mowing the lawn and THIS is Just what the doctor ordered!

Cheers!

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Aroma- A very nice malt aroma with maybe an earthy undertone.
Appearance- A dark brown ale with an off-white head.
Taste-Has a strong malt flavor with a light bitterness at the end.
Palate- Medium bodied with a well balanced mild carbonation.
Overall- This is a really good beer. Doesn't appear to have a wide distribution. if you can find it I would give it a try.
