Very slight nutty aroma. Dark copper color with a heafty creamy head. Nutty, malty, slight bitterness on the tongue and then a creamy nutty aftertaste. Medium weight on the palate. Love the light, but complex flavors. Would be nice with a steak or burger.

Handbottle... Crystal clear, deep-copper ale with a small, creamy, khaki-colored head. A generous measures of praline and toffee in the nose flanked by a suggestion of milk chocolate. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes toasty, chocolaty and then dry. Excellent nut brown.

It has a dark amber brown color with a small head in the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts and a touch of sweetness. Flavor has more malt up front and then some walnuts and a touch of sweetness like some roasted fruit. Great finish.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2012 Pours a mahogany color with aroma of roasted nuts. Taste is smooth with a mild coffee taste along with a sweet caramel flavor. A flavorful brown ale with some complex notes. Overall a good brown ale typical of the style. A good choice for #500.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown in color with a nice finger of khaki head. Strong toasted malt aroma, a nice nuttiness, and a surprising amount of roasted malt. A fair amount of of cocoa, good toffee sweetness, and light scents of burnt nuts. The flavor is a bit more bitter than expected, but still has some toffee and toasted malt sweetness. Lots of roasted malt, almost burnt nuts, and a touch of earthy hops. Heavy on the bitter chocolate at the finish.

Draft. Hey its brown.....imagine that. Too much nutty bitters for me. I go for one or the other but not together. Too complex for my simple palate.
