This beer pours a quite hazy muddy brown color with a fizzy but small head. The nose leads with a sweet, caramelized bread, followed by hint of chocolate. The flavor is really quite sweet, with notes of chocolate, golden raisin, and sweet brown bread. The mouthfeel is full and sticky. This really does not hit the notes I am looking for in a brown ale, it is too full, much too sweet, and out of balance. I could not get through the whole thing. I am not saying it is terrible, but it is just not working for me.
