COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of seven unique malts give this brown ale an earthy aroma and a flavor reminiscent of caramel with a slightly creamy finish.

madvike (2905) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Tap @ the Memorial Union on Lake Mendota - Pours dark brown with a creamy head. Smells nutty and lactic, with chocolate and cinammon notes. Num. Taste is smooth...waaaay smooth. There’s lactose, sweet mild malt, cinammon. There’s a touch of hops on the finish, but nothing that detracts from the malty sweetness. Feels great in the mouth, and would be a great beer to split a pitcher with a friend. Hey, that’s what i did.

beerwolf77 (42) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Had this on tap at the brewery. It pours a dark brown color with a minimal head. The smell is malty with a nutty coffee tone. The taste is a mix of coffee and chocolate. Very malty and rich. It has a nice full mouthfeel. The carbonation is low so it goes down really smooth. I will be picking up a sixer of this next time out.

Murky copper/orangeish color with a falling, medium head. Caramel, nutty, slightly buttery aroma. Malty flavor, but not outrageoulsy thick or deep. Lightly nutty, some biscuit. Dry, earthy hop finish.

Nutty, with coffee and caramel. Was consumed almost side-by-side with New Glarus Fat Squirrel. Although the Ale Asylum beer is distinctly smoother in palate, the Fat Squirrel has a greater depth of malt character.

hopheaven (91) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2009
Sports a wicked label. Is reddish-brown or cola in color. Smells very nutty and of caramel with piney, citrusy hops. Tastes predominantly of bitter nuts and has a raw, toasted flavor that is refreshing and unique. The same flavor profile shows up in their other beers but here it fits to style with grace.

[1859-20081112] 12floz bottle. Toasted grainy bread yeast aroma. Slightly hazy, brown amber body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Mildly fishy flavour is mostly grainy toasted yeast and some mild floral notes. Medium body is mildly watery. Average.
