Brown pour, upped clarity, didn't develop the a whole lot of head 1/5", couldn't form enough to retain anything. Aroma didn't kick down much in the brown malt or nuttiness department.

Shit kinda went off the rails, way too bitter, almost a copper penny bitterness in a style that should be smooth, furthermore, the lack of nuts in my beer (ahem) kinda defeats the purpose for such a style subgenre. Drank hot. Below average representation of style.
