Brown beer that does allow a wee bit of light to penetrate its murky depths. There is a very light tan head that dissipates quickly but leaves a few specks behind on the glass. The aroma is sweet, nutty, and has a hint of cocoa to me. The taste is sweet and has notes of hazelnuts and cocoa with a tanginess that fades into bitterness. The body is a bit thinner than medium but is good for the style. This is a nice brown.

12 ounce bottle -> New Belgium globe

A - mahogany brown with an unrelenting head of foam that caught me by surprise spilling liberally over the edge of the glass. Not surprisingly, retention and lacing are good.

S - molasses and some coffee

T - molasses, caramel, toffee, cola, chocolate, and coffee. Mild flavor profile.

M - a bit thin with average carbonation.

O - This is a brown ale. Easy to drink. Hard to love, impossible to hate. That about sums it up.
