3.98/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear jet black in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate extremely dark brown + dark chestnut brown + dark cola brown + ruby red colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy frothy foamy tan head that reduces to a large patch of thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted + chocolate + caramel malts with minimal amounts of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly less than moderate aromas of bakers chocolate + fudge and light aromas of herbal + earthy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of roasted + chocolate + caramel malts with minimal amounts of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly less than moderate flavors of bakers chocolate + fudge. Finally there are very light flavors of herbal + earthy hops. There are slightly heavier than light amounts of lingering roasty bitterness.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Slightly lighter than expected in the mouthfeel and enjoyable as it is not overly sweet even though it has the flavors and aromas of brownies.

16 oz can with a 15 November (2019) date stamp.
Pours very dark brown with a weak beige head.
Wow! This really does have the flavors of brownies, including some fudgy chocolate. Not hints of these but rather an obvious presence. Moreover, these do seem to be 'special' brownies thanks to the herbal, slightly skunky flavors from the hops. The ale is not, however, sweet, particularly in the mildly bitter aftertaste.
