Pours a reddy-brown. Decent head and lacing.

Nose is real stout-like. Lot of roast, ink, some whiteboard marker and ethanol, then recedes to a complex barrage of malt, roast and toast. Some caramel, and lots of chocolate. Bit of their house yeast smell. Really complex nose.

Taste is predominantly roasty with some nice toasty malt notes.

Mouthfeel is thinnish, medium carb; appropriate to style.

Overall a nice beer, perhaps my pick of the brown ales I've had.

Aroma
Sharp nutty flavor. Hints of almond, hazelnut, chocolate which are becoming more noticeable as it warms.

Mouthfeel
Medium carbonation, with a bit of weight on the palette. Maybe a slight creaminess, but negligible.

Appearance
Dark mahoghany in a nut brown glass. Poured to 1/4" to 3/8" of head and is hanging around lacing the glass mildly. Very nice overall, I'm much impressed.

Taste
Getting some hints of hoppiness in there with most taste coming from the malt side. Bit of a caramel, maybe some toffee with a slight amount of alcohol taste.

Drinkability
Rather, the alcohol hints detract a bit but I could make an evening of this beer.
