Amazingly dark beer bottle brown color, nearly black stout-like appearance, finger high head of creamed cocoa brown sits long before staying as a thin skim always present, lacing in large amounts of globs and ink blots.
Smell is really nice, nothing faint here, all browns(black) ales need to smell like this. Some favorable soft bakers chocolate and richly roasted black malt sweetness make the top and hardy blackened bready biscuits takes the bottom. The malted sweetness adds a nice balance to the roasty/burnt breads.
Taste has a nice black malt sweetness, chocolate breadyness, soft, yielding roastyness, then it takes a turn towards the finish where some nice leafy hop bitterneess comes through and ends late with leftover chocolatey dryness. Nice finish, subtle, complex, hop bittering mixed with the roastyness and dry chocolate.
Feel is sweet, dry, roasty, just shy of medium body with a nice finish. Porter-like character overall.
This brown ale thinks its a porter. A great attitude to have.
