A-Hazy, dark orange tinted brownish copper with a thin light tan head that left spotty lace.

S-Almost nothing other than the fainest of roasted malt.

T-Better flavour than aroma. Biscuity roasted/chocolate malt with a decent earthy/spicy hop ending.

M-Medium body, smooth, chewy, bready mouthfeel.

D-Needs a bit more umph. Not bad but I need more flavour. Kind of dull overall.

On tap at Old Forge on 12/26/08.

A - Muddly light brown body with thin tan cap and modest carbonation. Head receded but left thick swatches of lacing behind.

S - Not much going on here save for some sweet caramel malt and subtle toffee notes. There is also a faint earthy hop presence.

T - Malty, of course, with caramel and toffee and the forefront. Hint of earthy hop bitterness and some bready malt in the finish.

M - Medium body with a syrupy texture and moderate carbonation. Touch of bitterness on the palate in the backend.

D - Meh? Typical brown ale, in my opinion. I'm not a huge fan of the style to begin with, and this did little to sway my opinion.
