On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a one-finger light tan head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of equal parts roasted and toasted malts with good amounts of milk chocolate.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Roasted and toasted malt flavors with good amounts of charred caramel up front. Good amounts of nutty and milk chocolate flavors enter into things midway through the sip and carry through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a solid thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass very quickly and could easily have another.

Overall this was a solid brown ale, although I'm a fan of more roastiness than quintessential brown ales allow. Well worth a shot.

The body color is a dark ruby with an Ok head. Good malty aroma, and in the flavor there is cherry and faint chocalate. The sweetness is balanced out by a good hop bitterness. It's a shame I had to show up late for the Classic City Brew Fest. Not only did they have this little number on, but they had a barley wine at the festival that wasn't on tap at the brewpub when I visited it with friends after the festival.
