Gotta love a good canned beer. No appearance because of the can but I can assume dark brown.... Had this on tap before and it is dark brown with a nice rich head.

Smell - hard to get a good smell, but I smell chocolates and roasty malts

Taste - lots of roasty malts and a great chocolate end. Delish.

Mouthfeel - nice smooth finish to this pup!

Overall - great craft can for sure. Not a huge brown ale fan, but this one is tasty

A-Pours brown but fairly transparent in its body. Thin, creamy off-white head. Nice lacing as well.

S-Very soft nose. Light cocoa, mild roastiness. Wholly malty with faint nuts. Nothing crazy here but overall pretty agreeable.

T-More of the same, simple Brown here. Light cocoa. A bit of nuts. Definitely wanted some more zip to it though.

M-Light bodied. Drinks quite easy with welcoming carbonation. Flavor dies off quickly leaving is mellow aftertaste.

O/D-I wanted more from this but I did enjoy my pint. I thought it had more potential in it, though.

Pours a deep dark reddish/brown that is close to black. Very small tan head but left good lacing when sipped. The aroma is of of nutty grains and chocolate. Very pleasing to the nose. The taste is the same and very pleasant with no bitter aftertaste. Perfect carbonation. Really liked this brew and the first I had from this brewery.
