Admittedly not a huge fan of browns, but this has got to be almost as good as it gets for the style. Silky smooth, chocolately malt all the way through. Wonderful winter beer, even if you don't normally seek out browns.

Look: Finger of off white head dissipates relatively quickly. Beautiful deep dark brown in color. Barely any light gets through this one.

Smell: Dark chocolate, freshly percolated coffee, some other roasty malts. Smells to me what a cabin deep in the woods smells like.

Taste: Super roasty toasty coffee and toffee. Nice chocolaty sweetness. A little nutty.

Feel: Its a little creamy but still feels a little thin to me. Roast really lingers in the back of the throat.

Overall: I love this beer. It really reminds me of camping, where everything is dirty and or burnt. I'm also really not great at camping.

Pour is dark brown with a red hint and a bubbly tan head. Nose is heavy roast with coffee notes. Taste is similar, lots of roast and coffee, a bit acrid and coffee bitterness. Lighter body, a bit empty with soft carbonation. Simple and singularly roasted.
