Smells of caramel, malt and coffee. There is a semi biter taste but mostly a coffee and malt flavor. Interesting brown.

WAY better than the average brown ale, though I still canít figure out why this is so ridiculously expensive in bottles. Like its barreled.
Anyway, waiting for a reasonably overpriced can. Nice aroma is light toast and chocolate, with a hint of hops and caramel underneath. Flavor is full and much the same. Medium dry body. One of the better Browns Iíve had.

Poured a lighter brown with an off white head. Aroma was toasted malt, caramel and nutry. Flavor similar, but a bit dry and not as complex as I would have expected from the aroma.

22 ounce bottle, no dating that I noticed on the bottle or label. Served in an ATG mug, the beer pours a slightly hazy brown/copper color with about an inch light tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like caramel, nuts, toffee and some earthiness. Taste is pretty much like the aroma, but thereís also some grassy hops, minerally and chocolate flavors noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit creamy and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought it was a good enjoyable brown ale, Iíd buy it again.

Starts off like an English brown, buts finishes like an American. Drink it from a can. Damn good. 5.0%

16 oz can - pours a rich dark brown with a thin off white head that dissipates. The aroma is mostly coffee, hazelnut, caramel and a whiff of smoke. Solid brown ale flavor with notes of mocha, roasted nuts, caramel, toffee and earth.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 7-31-2015 (Can) The appearance when served is a small beige head that mostly diminished, brown body, very little carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and earthy hops. The flavor is lightly bitter, roasted malt, chocolate, and light toffee. The mouthfeel of this beer is smooth and it is a medium bodied beer. A quaffable beer with a roasted lingering aftertaste. This is not the best of this beer style that I have rated as it has a somewhat bland taste.

A really dark brown pour with a white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, caramel, chocolate. The flavor is really nice with a nutty, roasted flavor. Very smooth, dry finish. Itís sweet but overall a dry beer. Itís good.
