Started out thin but it got better. Aroma was roasted toffee. Pours a light red-brown. First flavor is dry that evolves to a sweeter finish. Good malty Brown

I thought it was pretty nutty and malty, but not sweet though. Maybe some hazelnut. Malt was kinda dirty though. Mouthfeel was pretty thick but slightly sticky with bad carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to CMUBEERMAN. Pours hazy, chunky orange rust. Aroma is roasted nuts, malt, grass. Flavor is the same and on the dryer side (compared to the last beer I just had, Goose Island Bourbon County Stout). Not bad for a brown ale, eh?

A tasting at Three Cellars Milwuakee. Very hoppy and very smooth good balance of the hops and other flavors.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown with thin off-white head, diminishing with particulates galore floating about the sea of brown ale in my shaker glass. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts and nuts. Smooth, malty, creamy to go with a medium palate. Tastes decent enough and finishes with a little semi-sweet bitter finish.

Wonderful toasted aroma. Flavors jump between toasted and roasted: toast and caramel compete with cocoa and popcorn for malt dominance, yet none get an upperhand. Good body, creamy feel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours chesnut with a light khaki head. The aroma is rich caramel and black tea with some almonds. The taste buttered toast with some honey on it. There is also a note of toasted almonds in the finish. The mouthfeel is full and creamy, making this seem like more than an average brown ale. Very well made, I could drink this all night.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very nice red/brown color with a thin light tan head. Smells quite malty sweet. Flavor was caramel and malts with a strong pretzel taste. At 5.2%, I could drink this all afternoon.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber... almost crimson in color with a crisp whit head that fades to a ring around the glass. Malty nose with hints of caramel. Palate is clean and malty with nutty flavors and more caramel. Crisp and slightly hoppy on the finish.
