Had on tap. Pours clear, light brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is sweet chocolate, cocoa, and light coffee. Medium bodied, sweet with some roastiness, and moderate carbonation. Above average, decent beer. Nothing I would rush out for but not a beer I would decline if offered to me.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown color. Slowly dissipating finger’s worth of white foamy head. Moderate speckled lace. The aroma takes milk chocolate to surround some sly nuttiness, subtle toffee, then some caramel malts super low. The flavor brings in those aromas sweetly with a subtle roast. Light coffee bean bitterness. Nice wet roasty and sweet milk chocolate aftertaste. Smooth chocolate finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel about it. Overall, wow, Mayflower, look at you, making a spectacular Brown ale dosed nicely with a ton of chocolate in it. Almost porter like, but real good. Definitely have this again.

Deep brown where barely makes it through the center of the glass. Appears to be clear. Small bar poured head leaves an array of spots for lace.

Powdered cocoa aroma. Mild chalkiness. Light cream.

The body fits the style while the carbonation is a bit higher--lots of spritz on the tongue. Dry darker chocolate flavors make this a borderline Porter. There's also a higher hop presence than most Browns. Long dark cocoa aftertaste.

12oz. can dated 07/29/16

Pours clear maroon dark red-brown with a frothy khaki colored foam head. Smells like dark fruits, some plum, cherry, fig, nutty toasted malts, dark caramel, molasses, brown sugar, chocolate, medium roast coffee, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like chocolate, dark caramel, molasses, brown sugar, roasted coffee, toasted malts, some dark fruit, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice brown ale.
