Firetrucker Burnout Brown

This 5.3% ABV brown ale is from the Firetrucker Brewery of Ankeny, Iowa. They are located in a former fire station, and thus the theme of their brewery and beer names.

The beer pours a very dark brown with highlights of dark, glinting, ruby. There is nearly an inch of somewhat creamy light tan head. The aroma is toasted, nutty, with a bit of dark fruit, dark berries. The taste is dark roasted, a bit of char, light notes of dark fruit and berries, some sweetness, but with a moderately bitter finish that is mostly dry. The beer drinks smooth and soft.
