3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep coppery borwn with a nice foamy lasting head and nice spidery lace. Aroma is nutty toffeee, and chocolate, with an almost typical mid pa yeast character that I get from some Troegs and ABC beers slightly fruity aroma- english yeast. Flavor is nutty, leather, toffee, light brown bittersweet chocolate, herbs, and a bit of green hops which work nicely. Dry lightly roasty and toffee finish with a slight fruity ester profile. Pretty good, and easy to drink- a bit different but still a good brown ale.

12 oz bottle thanks to machfive55. Pours a murky brown color with a small white head. A light aroma is caramel malts, toasted notes and some hops. A nutty toasted flavor; light hops in the finish and lots of toasted malts. Slick and watery mouthfeel. Light but decent. An OK brew.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Good smooth ropey beer aroma, attractive and appetizing. Looks somewhat like root beer. No visible carbonation. Head fades to a froth. On the palate there is decent carbonation. Has a bitter hop character that lingers for a while after each slug. Finish is hoppy leather or sumthin. Hangs for a while after the finish.

A delicious brown ale. Aroma was roasted malt and toffee. Very full. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger almost tan head. Taste was very unique. Very nutty. Cashew and peanut with a bitter roasted malt aftertaste. I donít know how this beer can be so nutty without nuts being used in the process. Nice carbonation.

Draft at CAH. Poured deep brown with off-tan white head. Nose is malty, with some peaty, almond, toffee, and mild hop notes. Not very complex, with initial malt followed up by some earthy cashew notes, hops, and some grainy notes. Meh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, Harrisburg location. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small beige head that retained as a thin film. The nose is very lightly nutty with a bit of graininess and a weird soapy note. The flavor is pretty thin with a lot of husky grain and toasted malt, very light bitterness, rather short and forgettable finish. Light bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. A below average Brown Ale.
