Had this on tap at the Sweetwater in Sterling VA. This came out looking a dark brown with a slight tan head with a bit of lace left about as it was drank. Aroma was of semi-sweet chocolate and nuttiness that mixed together over roasted malt. The taste was very similar to the nose with chocolate, nutty flavors and a roasted malt combine for a great flavor that is balanced out with a slight hop bitterness and coffee flavor at the end. One of the most flavorful Brown Ale’s I have had ever. Mouthfeel was good with a creamy medium body and good carbonation. With the great taste this never really got old and the only thing that might slow you down drinking these is the 6.4% alcohol. This is one of the few in the style that actually gets me a bit exciting because of the flavor, definitely give this a shot if you are in the area.
