Decent brown ale, hearty with alot of body for the style. Has alot of rich chocolate and caramel maltiness, with just a hint of hoppy biterness coming through in the finish.

what is with this raisin-mincemeat pie flavor that completely ruins this brown ale?! While this would be an interesting twist if offered as a x-mas time festive ale, it is not what iím looking for in a brown ale year-round. the brewer says i may be tasting the fuggles hops, i donít know, but iíll try it again next december whilst standing under the mistle toe.

Sampled on draft at 75th Street in KC. Pours dark brown with a lasting, light tan head and remarkable lacing. An attractive pour. A mild aroma with light floral notes. The flavor is full of chocolate malt goodness. Balanced with a medium body. Excellent ale.

Rich milk chocolate and tons af caramel in both nose and flavor. Little hop chatacter at all. Full bodied. Very filling. I would love to have another, but the one that I drank made me just too damn full.

This is a ruby-brown. Bitter nut flavors, chestnut, tingly bittered with a sharp finish. Can see why itís won some medals, dead on for style. Pretty robust on the brown ale spectrum.

On tap at the brewpub. 22 IBU. Aroma of nutella! Hazelnut flavor and a nutty aroma. Copper brown in color. Maybe a residual almond flavor? Nice hop content with good bitterness balancing the malt. I donít see this in too many brown ales.

Cask version. It was dark brown with a big (2") off white, billowy head. Nice aroma, taste was choclate malt and nutty. There was a decent mouthfell even without the carbonation. This was 100x better than the Irish Red I had out of the cask the last time. Didnít have my notebook with, so I will have to re-rate.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2005 First visit to 75th street brewery. Tried the brown ale. Very nice, not as good as other browns but solid. Will definitely go back and try others of this companyís brews.

Above average selection for a former Great American Beer Festival winner. One of the better brown ales youíll find in the area, and a good pick once there. NIce dark-brown color and decent odor, the flavor is better the more you drink.

Deep burgundy and brown color. Dark tan head... sweet plum and grapes with a caramel malt hint in the nose. Sweet and sticky, with plums, cherries and sweet sugar flavors, not bad for the style at all.
