5.3% ABV Had this in a sample glass (along with 7 others the brew-pub makes!), and it convinced me to get a pint.

Dark chestnut in color, a decent one-finger head that gives way to good lacing that stayed on the glass til the pint was gone.

The smell at first was toasted caramel, but as the glass warmed the chocolate notes came up.

Taste followed the pattern of the smell, as the caramel gave way to chocolate and some fruity notes.

I thought the mouthfeel was abit thin for such a flavorful ale, but perhaps I was just expecting too much from it's lovely appearance -- looked like a dopplebock, so maybe I was expecting it to feel like a d-b.

Smoothly drinkable, the beer would do well to be served a bit warmer than it was, like about 50 degrees or so.

Overall, this was one of the two best beers this brewpub produces.

Sampled at the brewery in Denver, CO. Clear mahogany colored brew with chestnut accents with a thin, flocculent light tan head with ok retention and lacing. Evidently a 2001 silver medal winner at the GABF in the brown porter category. Mild carbonation. Aroma is rather distant with notes of floral hoppiness and light roasted coffee. Taste begins with light roast coffee, roasted barley, grain husk, sweet corn, and a finishes with mild nuttiness (perhaps walnuts) and herbal hops. Moderately sweet amber malt body, with no perceptable alcohol and a slick mouthfeel.
