12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy brown color with a thin tan head. Poor head retention. Aroma of chocolate, toasted malts, caramel, floral hops and faint nutty notes. The taste is nutty notes, chocolate, citrus, caramel and a lightly hopped finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Decent beer.

Bottle. Pours a lightly hazy copper brown color witha medium sized off whit head. The aroma is malt forward with caramel, nutty, light vanilla and biscuity. The flavor has moderately sweet biscuits dipped in caramel. Mild nuttiness with a finish that is slightly bitter. Creamy and light/medium bodied. Not a bad brown, butt...

Brown ales are mostly not an exciting category, and this one on-tap at the brewery is no exception. It was however beter than average for the style because of its rich malt and creamy mouthfeel. Too sweet. Light brown colour with creamy head. It looks like its on nitro, which it is not.

Purchased at Breeze Thru Liquors in MIlwaukee, WI; enjoyed on the Labor Day weekend watching baseball after a long run, feeling good. Appearance a murky caramel brown with copious small yeasties and a thin white head that rims around the glass. Aroma is nutty with apparent caramel, slightly floral as well, somewhat unique. Taste is definitely nutty, nice malty finish, not too carbonated, also very slightly floral, medium body. Another good one from this great brewery.

Pours clear reddish with off white head, aroma has notes of nuts, caramel, earth, spice, chocolate hints with more of a cocoa powder, some slight grass and biscuit. Taste has notes of lots of almond, hazelnut notes, some caramel, toffee, slight notes of earth and spice, finishing slightly dry. Nice brew.

Poured a dark browwn/amberish color from a 12 ounce bottle. Aromas of caramel, biscuits, hops, and nuts. Flavors match aroma, but has a surprise of a hint of tobacco. Bleneded nicely with each other.

Draft sample. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and nuts aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium nutty sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable beer.

On tap at the Sugar Maple in Milwaukee. Medium brown in color, fairly clear with a light beige head.  The aroma is nice and nutty, pretty spot-on for what I expect of this style.  Great complex nut flavor, with hazelnuts and chestnuts standing out along with a good toffee presence.  Medium-bodied with a decently smooth mouthfeel.  Overall very good for the style.

12oz bottle from Steve’s Liquor and More in Madison, WI. Pours a cloudy, brown-amber tinted body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is caramel and nuts with a light cocoa, sour grain, a light toasty biscuit, and some floral hops. Flavor is similar. Thin caramels and nuts up front with some floral hops and grains without the sourness that I detected in the aroma. A light cocoa and toast grows slightly towards the end before this finishes dry, somewhat thin, and nutty with a light bitterness and hint of roast. Medium length aftertaste following a light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent brown ale. Has some nice nutty, cocoa, and toasty flavors, but a bit thin and grainy without any remarkable qualities. Okay.
