What a pleasant surprise!

A: Thick creamy head with nice lacing.

S: A little mineral, a little chocolate.

T: Malt in the front, shivery soapy hops at the aftertaste. Quite a hoppy brown, really - but without screaming 'ZOMG 'Hopzorz!1!' at you. It's nicely balanced and not medicinal at all. The aftertaste IS a smidge medicinal though, an inevitable outcome of the hops.

MF: Round, not too prickly.

A: Dark brown with a ruby tinge, slightly cloudy and you can’t see any carbonation. Three whopping fingers of beige foamy head.

S: Coffee, chocolate, dark toasted malts, vanilla, orange candy, citrusy.

T: Dark toasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate with citrusy notes, orange candy and vanilla, then a metallic note on the end. Light bitterness. Light sweetness.

M: Thick bready, lightly syrupy body. Medium foamy carbonation.

O: The dark malt and light citrusy combination remind me of a lighter version of a black IPA. Really enjoyable. Got this at Whole Foods in Savannah, drank it in Tampa July 21st, 2014.

Sampled at the Distillery from the very first keg available to the public. Excited about this new brewery opening in my backyard!

Poured a dark brown with reddish highlights and a creamy ivory head that leaves nice lacing as it fades. Nice Brown Ale aromas of roasted nuts, chocolate, caramel, and some nicely bitter hops. Flavors follows the nose nicely, lots of expected Brown Ale flavors of chocolate, coffee, and roasted nuts but again the finish is a nicely bitter blend of espresso and resinous hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with a medium body and good carbonation. Overall a very solid Brown Ale, I'm gonna re-visit this many times!
