Bought while on vacation. The beer is dark black in appearance with a thick, thin brown head and lacing in the sides. Aromas include cocoa cream smell with a little roadty hint. Taste is very attractive with an almost milk chocolate and malt mixture that is airy and fluffy. The mouthfeel is very creamy, helping to make the beer like an enjoyable dessert. Overall, excellent appearance, taste, and mouthfeel.

2/2/17 canning date

A: Dark brown pour with a small frothy head. No lacing and little head retention.

S: Pretty subtle aroma, some caramel and toast for the most part.

T: Ah yeah. Lots of caramel initially with a touch of coffee. Big toffee flavor in there, I was not expecting that. Nutty to boot, really nice. Hints of ganache.

M: Fairly light, typical of the style and ABV.

O: One helluva brown ale. Great flavor complexity with big bold tastes. One of the best I've had, impressive!

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a semi-dark brown with a large tannish head. The aroma is malt and oat goodness. The taste is very mellow and smooth malt with some other grains added. An excellent brown ale

A: Pours a very lightly hazy, almost opaque deep mahogany brown in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate amounts of deep crimson red colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy tan colored head that reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted + nutty malts with a hint of toffee sweetness, light aromas of espresso, and light aromas of earthy hops.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of roasted + nutty malts with a light amount of chocolate malts and just a light amount of toffee sweetness. There is a light flavor of coffee/espresso and a hint of earthy hops. There is a light amount of roasty bitterness in the finish which lingers only slightly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink, smooth, and enjoyable. Really nice complexity of flavor with a lighter mouthfeel and well hidden alcohol.
