3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle filled 06-07-2016. I presume this is the right one to post this review under. Mahogany brown pour with a quick-lasting head. Aroma of nutty and roasted malt sweetness with a low to no hop profile. Maybe earthy. Medium body with a little acidity and carbonation. The taste is sweet and roasted all the way around and generally mild and easy to drink. Dry finish. Quite decent.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taps opaque chocolate brown with a thin but acceptable light tan head. Aroma features, toasted malt, caramel, cinnamon, clove and woody hop tones. Flavor echoes the aroma, not quite as intensely, but fairly well, though the spices vanish into the background; the hop note is a little stronger. Mouthfeel presents decent body and lively fizz. Draft beer, not people!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Butcher and boar with commonmac. Rated with a cold. Bumped pint. Dark red brown with really nice foamy white head. Malty nose. Taste is well balanced sugar, malt, and grain bitterness. Really well done, right down the middle carrying a bit of all the elements. Was worried it would be too malty but it wasn’t. Tiny bit of roast and nuttiness. Nicely done.

Not a bad beer at all. I can see why it has a 95 on here. Apparently making your Brown Ale in the English style is a good idea.

at old Alesmith last spring. Can’t say I like it better than the regular, but they are both pretty great in style. Smooth, nutty malty goodness, light roast and more caramel than the norm.

On tap at The Libertine Pub, Morro Bay. Much better than the Cream Ale, but far from this brewer’s ’hard hitters’. Hazy brown, nutty, brown sugar, creamy. Nice brown ale.

Draft at FarBarLA. Brown/red pour with a nice off white head. Nutty, spice, malt and Brown sugar aroma. Super nutty off the back , hints of spice, smoke, char, buttery feel on the mouth of course a nutty after taste. Not a big fan of nutty beers but this was a pleasant experience.
