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.

On tap at the new location, looks like a brown ale, smells like a brown ale. Taste is sweet and malty, well balanced. A solid example of the style beer.

Not much aroma. Chocolate caramel flavor. Slight nuttiness. Smoother than most brown ales.

"Super nice for the style. Chocolate malt, caramel, slight nuttiness in the nose. Barely there hops with smooth chocolate and roast in the flavor. Better than most browns. Thanks Travis. "

Finhead (1194) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Hazy brown with a small, white head. The aroma has caramel and some milk chocolate. It has a medium body with somewhat chewy texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with an easy finish.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Clear dark brown color with a medium beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, roasted nuts and caramel. Light-bodied with flavors of roast malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is roasty with a nutty and malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Sweet caramel bread doughy aroma very pleasant flavor. Not a great appearance for a commercial small white laced head in dark brown body. Medium sweet taste just right.medium creamy body with a soft carbonation and a long finish. Very enjoyable brew, in fact I think I’ll have another!

Draft at AA. Pours murky brown with very little head. Nice lacing. Mild caramel on the aroma. Taste is caramel and nutty.

Has a great aroma of bread and caramel. Pours a nice rich black color. Has a really nice blend of smoky, doughy, caramel, malt, with a touch of sweet fruit. The only negative of this beer, is its a little thin. A little more alcohol, and a bit thicker and this would be a 4+. It has such a nice flavor I wish they would crank it up a bit.
