Dark, roasty, chocolately brown ale. I’ve never met a brown ale I liked until this.

The most local beer I've ever tasted, so I may have a bit of bias, but nonetheless I'm super proud of this local small brewery.

On tap at Limelight. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is mild but mostly chocolate with a touch of roasted malt. Flavor is dark chocolate with some mild bitterness and a nice roasty character as well. Medium bodied with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Overall this was a really good brown ale!

Poured from the growler. I can’t believe I haven’t rated this before. Nice head. Dark brown color. Aroma is nutty and mild chocolate. Flavor is also nutty with a mild roasted barley and mild chocolate notes. Very slight note of hops. Overall one of the better brown ales out there.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours dark brown with ruddy glints and a creamy beige head. Smells like a very chocolate brown ale. Flavor is extremely chocolate. So much so that the grungy aspect of a typical brown is covered over. Finishes dry and chocolate. Amazing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bomber from Nugget Market in Woodland. It pours a nice dark brown color with a creamy tan head. The aroma is very toasty/roasted with light notes of cocoa and floral/woody notes. The flavor is intense with roasted malt, woody/floral hops, some cocoa and light notes of molasses. Really intense flavor for a brown ale. Good use of hops. No citrusy stuff going on here, just good earthy, woody floral hops to complement the toasted/roasted malt. Very nice creamy mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this one.
