Postmortem Brew Review
Rootbeer brown in color with some reddish color tones.
Sweet caramel malt aroma.  Some fruity notes float through.
Roasted toffee taste. Drying on the tongue.
Negligent head revealing spotty lacing.
Full bodied mouth feel. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Is it a brown ale or a Belgian dark?  Anybody?  It's decidedly not an average brown ale.  The muddled fruity undertones give that away.  And it's not your everyday Belgian, though it is definitely done in that style. T seems to fall somewhere in between the two.

Whatever you call it, do not call it by any negative connotations.  This is a refreshingly good spin on a brown ale.  The Reaper 'digs' it.  You might too.
