Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack)
Purchased: Oct. 11, 2014

Misc.: N/A

Poured a brownish, dark caramel, mahogany color with 1-to-2 fingers of tan head. Good stream of bubbles coming up from the bottom throughout the glass. Head settled nicely after originally appearing to dissipate. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.00)

Smelled light chocolate, roasty malts, toffee, caramel, light menthol, chocolate milk and faint Citra hops. Was tough at times to get anything on the nose. (Smell - 3.50)

Tasted similar to the nose. Got roasty malts, roasted nuts, caramel, toffee, chocolate, chocolate milk and slight cocoa nibs. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Thin texture. Soft carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 3.50)

Just an OK brown ale. Nothing spectacular. (Overall - 3.50)
