Very dark brown color. Copious foam head. Light malt aroma. Medium molasses, nutty malt flavor. Smooth body. Nutty finish. Somewhat lighter on the palate that the maltiest of browns. Light, soapy lace. Well made, balanced and easy. The body is somewhat thin as browns go.

Drinkable but not too exiting. The beers here are average and in an ever-growing industry the beers need to be exceptional and unique. This is a safe beer. Mild roasted aromas. Dark brown color almost like a Porter. Thin and watery palate. Flavors are roasted and nutty with some chocolate character. Average at best.

Enjoyed the first pour off a new keg. It was creamy and very hazy. Hints of caramel or toffee, but no sweetness. Amazing beer!

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear with a tab head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a slight nuttiness with sweet dark grains and bread backing. Flavor is similar with a bread and nuts with a sweet grain backing.

Tap pours a dark reddish brown with cream colored head. Nice earthy barley aroma with light chocolate roasted notes. The flavor is rich with a nice roasted grain profile while being light and very approachable. A good bit of nuttiness with light bittersweet chocolate, some dark fruits, a funky cherry rhubarb, and a solid bit of drying earthy lightly herbal hops round it. The hops are nice not over their bounds for style but stretching the norm. Nice sparkling carbonation brightens the sense near creamy brew. Would like to try on nitro.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep brown color with white head. Roasted, nutty, malty, toffee flavors. Pretty good brown, my favorite beer of their main beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewpub. Poured brown with a medium-sized, creamy tan head. Aroma was malty, light roast, slightly resinous hops. Flavor was moderately malty, some nuttiness, faint chocolate. Mouthfeel was thin, a bit astringent, sort of fizzy. So-so brown ale.
