Definitely an odd one. I was expecting something like Newcastle or Sam Smiths. What I found instead was a really rich roasted malt flavor, a lot like a stout, yet with a brown ale color. Not a bad beer altogether, but I think most of you will be surprised at what you find with this one. I really wasn't in the mood for a stout, so it was kind of a shock. Not the kind of shock when you learn that Miller Lite has only 3.2 grams of carbs, but still a shock.
