An aroma of dark roasted grains with a touch of stone fruit (plum), earthy and herbal hops and a bit of alcohol mix together in the nose of this beer. The color is medium-brown with reddish highlights and a light tan head. Minty hop flavors and moderately high hop bitterness layer on caramel and darker malts that are slightly sweet and chocolaty. The richness of the malts is balanced well with the hop flavors and bitterness -- leaving nice malt and hop traces beyond the finish. The body is medium with a perceived dryness and roast grain astringency that balances well with the overall flavors in the beer. If you like darker beers with a hop leaning and you want something smaller than a Russian Imperial Stout, this American Brown Ale will please you with its assertive malt and hop characteristics that are spot-on for this style.
