Mild brown; Stacey likes, but not complex enough for my taste. The color is a 5. Just barely lighter than a porter. Almost nonexistent light tan head. Smell is sweet malt. The taste is overbalanced to the malt with hardly any hops, and a slightly yeasty taste

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty, sweet, some chocolate. Taste is bready, malts, nutty, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
