Beautiful dark brown brew, creamy beige head with great retention and lacing.

Hoppy and roasty aroma, balanced and inviting.

Flavor follows: bitter and roasty, but smooth. Coffee notes and extremely bitter chocolate, almost like Baker's. Balanced with earthy, almost spicy hops with a lasting hint of citrus peel.

Extremely lively, medium full feel; smooth, with a very long, semi-dry, bitter finish.

Fantastic brown ale, reminds me of a lighter but more bitter Everett.

Nice, smooth, interesting flavors going on that are hard to identify for me. At 68 I don't always discern those tastes. Overall a very drinkable beer. Very glad I bought 6 the other day!!!!
