Growler obtained directly from the source. Served from growler into a Stone nonic. Poured a massively dark brown with a two finger light tan head that subsided to one finger slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of roasted malt, caramel, hazelnut, and chocolate. The flavor was of roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate, and cream. It had a medium feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a pretty nice brew. Had a complex aroma and flavor going on here. The aroma was very nice and the flavor was okay. The flavor was just a little more roasty than I enjoy myself. This is a must try for any fan of the style without doubt.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a Dark brown color and a somewhat thick texture. There was a good half inch of head and some solid lacing.

S: Smelled of malt, coffee and mild hops.

T: A well done taste, with roasted malt, roasted coffee, hops and a sugary quality. Nicely balanced.

M: A decently carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Full-bodied.

D: This is a very drinkable beer and a good example of an American brown ale. A likable beer altogether.

Picked up a growler from CBX in Charleston and reviewed it within 24 hours.

A: Poured a dark brown color, but slightly translucent. Foamy head filled about 1/4 of the 20 oz glass i was using. No sediment or haze.

S: Lots of roasty scents, and a hint of something citrusy as well. The roastiness is unique, since it's more of a roasted malt scent, with little or none of the coffee that you'd expect. Overall good, and very interesting at that.

T: Taste matches up nicely to the scent. I'm enjoying a blend of malty, chocoaltey, bready sweetness with some good bitterness from the hops. The citrus and hop flavors are a bit more concealed, but still there. As it warmed, some coffee did begin to lurk out.

M: Very good texture. The foaminess that I thought was indicative of overcarbonation turned out to be just fine. Not too bubbley or flat, and not too thick or too thin.

D: Good drinkability. The 7% alcohol is well concealed with the balance of sweetness and bitterness. However, after 20oz, I wasn't 100% sure I was ready for another glass that size.

22oz. bottle received in a recent trade with raverjames. Thanks a lot man!

Pours a very dark hazelnut/chestnut brown color which is completely opaque with dark mahogany edges when held to a light source and a two finger beige head that quickly fades into a thin ring.

Roasted sweet chocolate malt aroma with touches of coffee, toffee, caramel, oatmeal and toast. The bittersweet dark chocolate notes are very prominent and the roastiness is subtle enough to not overpower the other scents. Slightly smokey with minimal earthy hops.

Roasty medium chocolate malt body that is a little thinner than I hoped with plenty of bittersweet dark chocolate, along with hints of hazelnut, rye, burnt toast, roasted coffee bean and toffee. The roasted malt presence is much more prominent than he aroma suggests slightly overpowering the silky chewy chocolate malt. Subtle rye sweetness and a dry finish.
