A: Deep chocolate brown in color with a nice light brown head.

S: Light fruit, and a touch of powdered cocoa. Almost like a chocolate cherry thing going on, some slight bread aroma as well as caramel.

T: Caramel malt, and a bready flavor with roasted malt and a touch of coffee in the finish. Some decent sweetness, as well as perhaps something English in the finish.

M: Medium in body with moderate carbonation. The carbonation is fairly fine in size, and there is a bit of a linger in the finish.

O: Overall a pretty tasty brown with a bit of a twist. I've been fairly skeptical of this brewery, but this

Appearances can be deceiving:

A very dark brown with a nice tan head.

Initial taste is of a light chocolate stout. So where's the Belgian element that I paid for?

(Not present).

So its a very good brown ale, with a thicker mouthfeel; that's all. I could see drinking a lot of this if that was the style I wanted.

So why the claim to be something else?
