Poured this into a glass, it has a Mahogany color body with thin head. The aroma has roasty malt and a little hop coming from it. The taste has a roasty, chocolaty up front and a little hop towards the back. The malt is more dominant than the hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall a good beer.

Pours a deep caramel color that seems a bit light for the style to me. Medium head that doesn't leave a ton of lace.

Smell is thick with syrupy malt and some caramel notes. Bit of chocolate in there, as well, but not as prominent.

Flavor is sweet with the same thick caramel and chocolate flavors. The hops are a little understated; I felt that the malt was almost too much to not have more malt to hold it in balance. If you dig the caramel flavors, you'll like this one a lot; I just thought it was okay.

Pours a dark ruby with a nice creamy head. There are some nice malt tones in the aroma as well as hop accents. Some chalky cocoa powder on the nose as well. There are some nice tastes present. Like chocolate malt, cocoa and hop bitterness. I have come across few brown ales that make me stop and take note....and this isn't one of them. It's an o.k. beer from one of my least favorite styles.
