Bottle. Pours brown with light tan head that dissipates quickly and some lacing. Coffee, chocolate and caramel notes along with bread crust in the nose. Bready malt with coffee, chocolate, and caramel notes. Thinner mouthfeel than expected.

May I suggest that seven malts may be too many for a brown ale? Besides a bit of caramel in the aroma, there was little more to show for the malt investment. This ale isn’t particularly sweet, nutty or creamy. Pleasant enough, but that’s about it. Had from a tap.

On tap at Howells & Hood.
Brownish with a small head. Fairly mild with malt, chocolate, vanilla some toffee and nuts. The body was medium and the finish on the dry side.

Pours chestnut brown with aroma of nuts, caramel, and chocolate. Nutty flavor with some toffee sweetness and chocolate. A bit underdeveloped, but nice nonetheless.

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!

12oz bottle, thanks to shrubber85/phaleslu. Dated 12/10/2015. Red / brown color, with lots of yeasty chunks in the body. Thin off-white head. Fades to a minimal ring. Dark fruit up front. Caramel malt, very mild nuttiness. Touch of papery oxidization. Touch of chocolate. Moderate bitter taste, lighter to moderate sweet. Bit of a bite to it. Just a touch of tart. Mild drying finish. Medium-plus body. Lighter carbonation. Hint of coffee comes out later. Seems a little rough and off though. Didn’t finish.

Bottle. Nutty chocolate malt and herbal hay aroma. Medium brown with moderate tan head. Mildly sweet nutty chocolate malt and mildly bitter herbal quinine/hay flavor. Okay but a bit harsh.
