Poured from a bottle dated march 30th-- three weeks old.

Pours a very dark brown color. Red around the edges and almost completely opaque. Thin tan head and leaves minimal lacing.

Sweet, malty, bready, and roasty aroma. Only downside is that the smell is relatively weak.

Taste is very roasty, slightly boozy. Very smooth any malty overall.

Feel is heavy and smooth upfront and slightly dry on the end. Moderate carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall I enjoyed this one more than I anticipated. The drinkability and smooth malty and roasty flavors make this one a winner for me.

Dark brown body; thick, foamy head. Nutty aroma; some dark malt notes. Flavor follows the aroma; roasted grain flavor dominates; light yet prominent bitterness. Medium body; gentle warmth with a nutty, earthy quality throughout.

A solid, well-crafted ale. Malt-forward, relatively light in grain sweetness with a corresponding balance of warm, crisp hop bitterness. A fine brown ale...

12 oz bottle. Pours a medium brown, little bit of off-white head. Aroma rich, caramel malts, maybe some smoked elements. Body medium, creamy, finish sweet and rounded.
