Williamsburg Alewerks Tavern Ale

The Williamsburg Alewerks is in Williamsburg, Virginia.

This beer pours an extremely dark brown, nearing black, opaque.  There is a quarter inch of light brown creamy, foamy head.  The aroma is dark roasted malts, a bit of coffee and a tart note on the end.  The taste is sweet, dark roasted malt, with a tangy note on the finish.  The aftertaste is rich coffee.  The finish is dry and nutty, slightly bitter.  They list this as a brown ale, but it is very close to a stout or porter.
