16 ounce prowler into pint glass, filled on 5/19/2018. Pours crystal clear deep ruby red/brown color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of caramel, maple syrup, milk chocolate, cocoa, pecans, brown sugar, and toasted brown bread; with light notes of coffee, dark fruit, herbal, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/light roasted malt, maple, pecans, and light yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, maple syrup, milk chocolate, cocoa, pecans, brown sugar, and toasted brown bread; with light notes of coffee, dark fruit, herbal, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, maple syrup, milk chocolate, cocoa, pecans, brown sugar, toasted brown bread, light coffee/dark fruit, herbal, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roasted malt, maple, pecans, and light yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/roast bitterness. Light-medium carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol for 5.3%. Overall this is a delicious flavored American brown ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roasted malt, maple, pecans, and light yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Very rich and well rounded brown ale malt complexity, with great maple and pecan presence. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
