    A: Very dark garnet brown. Very little beige head. Fair retention though and a bit of lace.
    S: Sweet chocolate and raisins mainly. A little roast
    T: Bitter chocolate with just a faint sweetness. Also a very faint fruit note on the finish. Pretty good if not exceptional flavor. M: Light body. Low carbonation. Easy drinking to be so dark. O: Not a bad brown ale. Thin bodied but I like the low ABV. Worth buying at least when on sale for $8/6.

    [Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]

    The pour was a murky dark mahogany brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that was mostly diminishing, leaving behind a medium collar and fair runny lacing.

    The aroma was rather mild of toasted dark malts and a light doughy yeast with hints of coffee and a bit of chocolate.

    The taste was mildly malty sweet with just a touch of milk chocolate in the beginning, changing slightly to a mildly bitter roasty coffee presence at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time after the swallow, with the light roastiness fading quickly off the taste buds.

    Mouthfeel was a few steps light of medium in body with a somewhat watery texture and a mild carbonation.

    Overall as Brown Ale's go, I found this one to be a rather average representation of the style...
