Move over Smutty Nose and Avery Ellie, there's a new top brown ale in town, tied with Six Point Brownstone - This is good!

Appearance: Pours a clear, very dark brown body w amber highlights with a sturdy 2 inch head of tan froth that lasts all the way down (Bravo) and laces.

S: Smells of coffee and cream over a roasty, nutty, malty, earthy aroma. Hot mocha out on a muddy playground in winter.

T: The coffee roaster start follows into sweetened coffee with cream, roasted nuts, light chocolate, caramel and a pinch dark fruits. There's more, and it's all balanced: faint earthy hops with balancing bitterness to cut the initial sweetness. Roasty and creamy into the long smooth, satisfying finish. I opened this after 4pm coffee, tea and cookie session with friends, and it's the perfect shift into Christmas even dinner time. (Salmon, and three kinds of whipped (Potatoes, sweet potatoes and butter nut squash).

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: Creamy, malty brown ale, must try, it's my top rated brown ale. (Over Avery & Smutty nose by a hair).

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.
