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

Deep brown with a thick beige head. Lots of toasty malt and bread dough with some nuts and very light coffee notes. Super smooth and creamy with a nuty finish. Great beer! Lots of malt flavor and extremely enjoyable. Very hard to drink just one, except in my case I only had one beer to drink since I bought a sample pack and was strongly recomended to try this beer. Will buy more of this beer for sure.

Brown pour from 12oz bottle. Carmel and roast aroma. Nutty and earthy taste with a malty ending. A very nice brown.

Brown with a small beige head. The aroma is a mix of toffee, caramel, and some nutty malt. The flavor adds a bit of esters, and has a nice toasted brown malt character. Reminds of a lighter version of a brown porter. Finishes a tad sweet, and is quite easy drinking.

Roasted caramel malt has a strong vegetable edge and fecal aftertaste. Not recommended.

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. "

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.

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!
