Initially sampled (and added) this beer several months ago, but this is my first time reviewing it. Sampled at the Champlain & Perrin location.

Served in a standard American pint glass.

Appearance: Crystal clear mahogany body with a creamy, khaki-colored cap. Head shows decent retention, and drags fantastic lace: thick, sticky notches with webby gaps. When held to light, the body showcases orange and red highlights. Very pretty.

Smell: Caramelized walnuts, brown malt, pine sap, and toasted bread. Good amount of residual sweetness with a light alcoholic pinch (hops don't show through much).

Taste: Pine resin, brown malt, heavy hop bitterness, and a light alcoholic burn. Lots of pine all the way through. Pretty intense for a brown.

Mouthfeel: Fine, rolling carbonation creates a velvety sensation on the palate. Finishes dry, peppery, and slightly warm. Sort of resinous/oily. Bigger than most American brown ales.

Drinkability: One of Sequoia's best beers in my opinion. This brown borders on imperial but goes down very quickly!
