Dark Horse Boffo Brown Ale is a relatively simple brew with a profile consistent with most brown ales. Pouring a dark brown, this brown ale has a decent sized head, and it continues to linger down to the bottom of the glass. The beer instantly hits with some nut and bread-like malt qualities, and finishes with a bit of a coffee-like bitterness.
