Dark brown reddish color with a caramel head with good retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of toffee, mocha and milk.
Similarly, predominant flavor of a sweet cold Mocha with all its coffee, cream and chocolate notes. Hints of spices and nuts.
Medium body with a creamy sensation and appropriate carbonation.
Decent brown ale, a bit too sweet though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark, dark brown body with a khaki top. Minimal head.

S: Very malty and roasty. Maybe a little coffee and caramel.

T: Toffee and coffee at the start followed by an acrid/sour finish.

F: Medium to heavy bodied. Kind of flat, honestly.

Overall: Not bad, a solid, if unimpressive, brown winter ale.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 9/24/2013. Pours very hazy deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toffee, chocolate, cocoa, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, floral, light roast, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/toasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, cocoa, chocolate, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, floral, light roast, and toasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, cocoa, chocolate, nuttiness, biscuit, toast, light roast, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/toasted malt flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice brown ale! All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
