Great smooth quality to this beer has a wonderful creamyness to it but really not overly sweet either which i hae experinced in other beers of this style. also not overly nutty as some beers also have. If your brown fan i would highly recommend this one, I know i’ll be back for more.

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.

I totally love this beer. It has a hint of chocolate in it with nutty/malty over tones.
Very smooth with a tiny bit of hops on the end.
it is one of my favorite Brown Ales

(On tap at Outback) This is actaully one of their better tasting beers. Ale Asylum is definelty better at making darker beers than stonger lighter color ales. This one is true to the style yet unique also. Sweet maltiness, nuts, and the right amout of hops for the style. Refreshing

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear amber brown with a small off-white head with good retention. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, vanilla, and wet tobacco leaves. Flavor of caramel malts, nuts, brown sugar, tea, and tobacco, and a metallic note. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an almost watery mouthfeel. Quick finish. I like my brown ales more roasty and nutty, and this just seems like a fairly weak example of the style. Still not bad, just simple. Sessionable. I should also remark that this has been my only disappointment from an otherwise very impressive brewer. Re-Rate: I used to be a moran. But I got a brian and am re-rating this beer. I got a bottle at The Madison Club for a friend’s rehearsal dinner. This is one of the best straight-up brown ales out there. Medium-body, smooth as can be, toasty and nutty and robust. Man, it was damn near perfect for the style. I apologize for underrating this so badly before. I was wrong.

Aroma is nutty malts, chocolate, caramel and a hint of spice. The flavor is caramel malts, a hint of chocolate and a mildly tart finish.

This American brown ale pours a dark brown color with a slight scent of hops. It has a slight hops taste as well but a more overpowering nutty flavor that reminded me of pecans. For being a more flavorful beer it drank rather smooth. Definetly a must try!

Bottle, thanks George999! Rich, nutty aroma with sweet caramel notes. Pours dark caramel brown with a thin tan head with poor retention and some lacing. Starts with rich nutty flavors with a bit toffee. Finishes smooth with excellent caramel sweetness permeating the other flavors nicely. Excellent brown ale!
