The pour was just a shade under a clear medium brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) beige creamy head that dissipated slowly into a thin layer of foam creating some really nice lacing.
The aroma was of a dark roasted malt, a mild resin hop and a light leathery yeast with notes of roasted coffee, caramel, a bit of nuttiness and a mild hint of wood (oak).
The taste was malty and mildly bitter with a nice dose of coffee and a hint of caramel at first and then became a tad hoppy with a nice woody alcohol flavor towards the end. The flavor lingered for a good while after the swallow with a nice strong woody coffee flavor left behind on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a good medium in body and smooth and creamy in texture with a lively carbonation.
Overall a hoppy/woody Brown Ale that had the coffee and alcohol flavor blending together with everything else rather well.
