Sampled at brewery. Dark brown pour, strong nutty aroma with hints of some sweet spice or something. Nutty and sweet, caramel and toasty. Some odd sweetness that wasn’t enjoyable. Well crafted, but not a favorite example of the style.

Growler thanks a ton to Joe! Pours a dark mahogany color with a medium grey head. A sweet nose of toasted malts, nutty and some chocolates. The flavor is a nice NBA; sweet fruity malts, light chocolate, milky, toast, earthy. Very smooth. A nice brew. Certainly shows the versatility of AleSmith.

One of my favorites. Served on tap it has a wonderful aroma of nuts, vanilla and caramel. The taste is very smooth with caramel again and a blend of other candies that lead to a great long finish.

On tap at Alesmith. Pours clear dark amber with a thin tan head. The nose is caramel, roasted nuts and light coffee. The taste is ashy cocoa, dark caramel, roasted nuts and a mellow coffee finish. Medium bodied. Tasty stuff.

This smells like figs! The flavor is very normal brown ale at first. Some heaviness and roast comes out at the end. Not bad.
