Poured from a "cooled" bomber into a room temp pub glass.

A: Pours chocolate brown with a huge, khaki meringue head that maintains nicely with beautiful lacing as you drink.

S: This beer has a nice big aroma for a brown, with strong notes of caramel, coffee and roast.

T: Taste is a medium-dry toast with nuttiness on the back end. Despite the slight bitter quality of the roasted malts, it doesn't coat the palate or leave an arid aftertaste. I had a lingering of caramel after each sip.

M: Mouth feel is typical of a brown ale; not too heavy while being thirst-quenching. I would definitely use this beer to wash down dogs or spicy foods, as it was intended.

O: A delicious beer with all the elements you look for in a brown ale. It's much bigger in the nose than I'm accustomed to for this type of beer, but that doesn't overshadow the flavors going on as you drink it. I'd definitely like to get another and drink it while grubbing. A great collaboration!

Just got done reading on BA about brown ale's and now I'm drinking one. Without reading up on this beer I took one taste and said "this is a brown ale". And a pretty good one at that. Nothing crazy creative going on here, just a good solid beer. And it goes great with a hunk of smoked cheese..
