Poured from a bottle with a best by of 8/27/17. The beer pours a deep brown with very little head or lacing.

The smell sweet caramel and roasted malts. There is also some chocolate in there.

The taste starts with roasted malts and bitter coffee flavor with a little caramel as it warms.

The mouthfeel is decently thick and not overly carbonated.

Overall this is a decent brown ale with a better mouthfeel than many and good flavors.

From the 12 oz bottle in a pint glass via a friend from work---Thanks Randy!
This toasty beast pours a brown with light cola highlights and a very nice head of
dissipating off white foam that subsides to a thick ring, thin sudsy layer, and features
some very nice sudsy lacing. Nose of toasted malts, chocolate, and nutty malts
with a touch light coffee. Flavors hit the right notes for the style with a deeply roasted
nutty malt flavor that has light notes of dark cocoa and hints of light coffee bitterness with
a subtle herbal hop on the rear of the taste. Very nice mouth feel with medium carbonation
that is lightly crisp, medium body, and a malty finish. Overall a fantastic little brew from a new
brew to me and the little lady.

Cheers!

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt. The taste is surprisingly full of hops that go well with the malt.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a medium brown color with ruby tints and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of off white foamy head that lasted a good amount of time. Excellent lacing.

S: A pretty good aroma of malt, a hint of chocolate, and nuttiness.

T: Tasted of the typical brown ale nuttiness, roasted malt, a little bit of chocolate, and some caramel in the finish. A decent enough flavor with some nice additions to the style (the chocolate and caramel). Subtle and surprisingly sweet.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth, light finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a solid, likable American brown ale. Not a stunner, but definitely wrothwhile.
