Poured from tap into 12oz tulip at Terrapin, Rhinebeck, NY. Pours a crazy deep brown color - barely any light shines through - with nice thick tan head. Looks more like a porter than a brown..Smell is nicely roasted and bitter malts, toffee, caramel sweet. Taste is really nice bitter roasted caramel/toffee balancing nicely with the sweet malts. Its smooth and easy drinker. Crossroads is just great.

Swamp like clarity. Coffee roast on nose. Toffee, caramel and roasted malts. Piney, spicy, earthy hop profile.

A: Nice deep brown ruby color. Minimal amount of white head. A touch of bubbly off white head.

S: The nose is of malt with a touch of caramel and tofee. It is kind of a tight nose but still enjoyable and to style.

T:Very much a brown ale. Not that much hops but a nice malt . complexity. Lots of toffee some caramel. It really just kind of falls in the middle. A good example but nothing to make it stand out.

M: A little bit thin in the body.

D: Very nice brown ale. Super drinkable and a ton of flavor.
