    [Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

    The pour was a hazy medium brown with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that pretty much lasted throughout and had some fair streaky lacing.

    The aroma was of a dark roasted malt, an earthy hop and a light leathery yeast with notes of milk chocolate, a mild coffee odor, a touch of caramel and a bit of nuttiness.

    The taste was nice and malty and a bit nutty with a hint of chocolate in the beginning and then a pronounced hoppiness took hold with hints of coffee and maybe a little brown sugar towards the end. The flavor hung around for an average amount of time after the swallow letting the hoppy malt taste linger for a little while.

    Mouthfeel was just about medium in body with the texture being quite creamy and a tad dry with an almost prickly carbonation.

    Overall a fantastic Brown Ale that had just the right amount of bitter sweetness and a surprising hoppiness at the end.
