On-tap at Rolling Stones Bar and Grill, LAX Airport Terminal 7

A: The beer is clear very dark amber in color (brown when viewed from afar) and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that left a thin head covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of nutty malts along with associated hints of sweetness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and yet a little thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice brown ale if you like a lot of nutty flavors with a touch of sweetness in the taste.

Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce can poured into a pint glass

A: Pours brown with a tan colored head, looks like dark soda, beer is clear, light comes through giving it ruby colored edges, decent amount of carbonation.

A: Not much on the aroma, hints of nuts, chocolate, caramel, very subtle aromas.

T: Like the nose, slight roasted nuttiness, some chocolate, caramel, middle has some some subtle bitterness, finish is more roasted nuttiness and caramel malts, very balanced and drinkable.

M: Light bodied with a dry finish, good amount of carbonation.

O: A decent brown ale, not as flavorful as others but despite lacking some aroma it has a pretty good taste. It's definitely drinkable and balanced, this would make a good session beer in the fall as the weather cools.

12 oz can poured into a stone glass. Dark brown pour. Smell is slight chocolate and kind of a nutty smell. Not a bad taste but not a great taste either. There is really nothing to set this apart from any other brown. It's not bad but I probably would not revisit this brew.

Appearance: Dark brown, can just barely see light through it. Creamy looking tan head that lasts a very long time.

Smell: Chocolate, caramel, roasted malts.

Taste: Follows the nose. Sweet malt backbone goes well with the caramel taste. Some bitterness and roasted flavor at the end.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thick with lots of fine carbonation. Feels creamy.

Overall: Does not seem like a brown ale - more like a porter, stout, or scotch ale. Whatever it is classified as, it’s delicious. The abundant flavor and substantial feel is great for a 5.5% ABV beer.
