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.

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.

GIJOE (923) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Pours dark brown with a finger of foamy, tan head. Nose is bready with slight fruity notes and a hint of caramel. Taste is slightly bitter on a malty-sweet backbone. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I thought this was a little hoppy for the style. Still an easy drinker though

Smooth and a bit creamy/thick feeling. Lack of any real aroma. Molases notes are really awesome. I woulf rank below, but near to, New Castle.

Pours a dark brown with a good deal of yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Good shelf life on this beer. The aroma is clean with some dark roasted notes. The flavor is a typical American micro ale with a thick mouthfeel due to the use of a high percentage of caramel malts. All in all pretty good.

Another great nut brown ale. Really easy to drink. Nice nutty and malty start. Pours reddish brown in color with a tan head. Smells nutty. Had at grafton. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of caramel, cocoa and light nbuttiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, caramel and a hint of nuttiness with a smooth finish.

ARH (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2015
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. A roasted nut aroma is initially noted with some grains and earthiness late. Itís a dark, but clear, mahogany color with a tan-yellow soapy head that retains a moderate ring and leaves a dusty lace. Itís balanced between moderate bitter and sweet. The smooth beer has a light and fuzzy carbonation. The medium body is roasty and nutty with some grains and earthiness and a syrupy, and creamy, caramel finish. Itís surprisingly clean with just a hint of caramel.

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

monkeychugg55 (950) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2014
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.
