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.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the LAX airport.

The beer is true to the style - pure brown with just a bit of light coming through at the bottom. Murky/hazy. Head is light tan and dissipates somewhat quickly.

Smell is OK yet a bit faint. Some roasted notes and some bread come through.

Taste is somewhat watery but has some good bittersweet chocolate and roasted malt notes in there. Some bread as well, but rich roast character. Unfortunately, follows up with a somewhat astringent aftertaste, so not as smooth as I was hoping.

Somewhat interesting offering in an otherwise dull terminal beer-wise. Not complaining. Hit the spot on my layover.
