Pours medium brown with a tinge of dark maroon. A good colored, dark tan head unfortunately dissipated very quickly. Deep aromas of brown sugar, dark fruit, and sweet malt. Taste was underwhelming, some roasty, sweet depth but not much. Small amounts of bitterness and no alcohol bite which was good. Feel was creamy, but with medium high carbonation which was off-putting. Overall a fair brown ale, it met the standard of brown ales well, just left a little to be desired in richness and depth.

Easy drinking but not bold enough. Does not feel like a craft beer

Pours a clear medium brown producing 1.5 fingers of frothy, tan, shortlived head that leaves a slim surface ring & a thin wash of pasty lacing. Aroma dark malt, toast, chocolate, toffee & faint roasted nuts. Taste is fronted by toasted brown bread, a hint of cocoa, roasted nuts, caramel & dark fruity notes at mid-sip & finishing with a note of toffee & bitterness. Aftertaste is burnt malt bitter cocoa & cola caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, smooth & creamy with a nice prickly bite.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a frosted (unfortunately) pint glass. Poured with a thin lined, white head. Brown in color. Minimal lacing. Has aromas of mild chocolate, nutmeg and other spices combined with mild hops. Initial taste is of mild chocolate with nutmeg and spices. Mild hop flabors enter immediately after. Carbonation is a little more than mild. Leaves mouth dry, but not like an IPA.
