Also had this on tap at The Distillery. Went local over a lot of other solid drafts. Dark brown to black with reddish hints at edges. Thin head which faded fast. Not picking up much aroma here. Taste is hoppier than most brown ales I've had. Some tobacco and rye flavors. Not getting the chocolate here. Kinda thin watery feel and a metallic aftertaste. Not feeling this one.

Local brew from Savannah, GA. Popular with several of my friends but I am not a big fan of brown ales. This may grow on me if I drink it more often. Has a good dark smoky color.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours from the can a mahogany-hued, near clear body with a smallish, off-white head.

Smell: Falls in-between toastiness and roastiness, a restrained dose of floral, citrusy hops.

Taste: Roasty, toasty malts with a hint of a charred grain element. A dusting of lightly sweetish cocoa powder. Minor caramel. Modestly estery. Floral, citrusy hops with a medium degree of bitterness. Soft finish with a drying maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not bad. A drinkable, run-of-the-mill brown ale.
