Pours opaque but clear on the edges where the light penetrates. Huge amount of tan foam covers. Average retention but tons of spider web, wispy, but sticky lacing left in the wake.
Nutty, caramel and toffee come through first. Sweet sugar, roast, and hints of chocolate and coffee are there as well. Very malt forward.
Taste is sweet up front, caramel, before roast, chocolate and coffee. The darker malt profiles take balance out the sweetness. Still there is a lingering sweetness that lingers and builds.
Medium body with about the same carbonation. Somewhat dry.
A solid brown ale that is malt forward. Haven't had one of those in a while. The only flaw I would mention is that the beer has moments of big sweetness. But there is a cornucopia of balanced malts. Enjoy!
