Draft at PA Spring Fest. Filtered orange-brown color. Mellow smooth brown malt aroma. Balanced, medium bodied, lots of nutty flavor. Pretty well done. Malt really carries the beer. Delicate on the palate.

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 don’t know how this beer can be so nutty without nuts being used in the process. Nice carbonation.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
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.

On tap at the brewpub. Deep brown pour, slightly hazy. Aroma is really roasty, tons of nuts, caramel, hint of clove. Taste is equally nutty, nice bitter roast finish. Palate is light-med bodied with medium carbonation. Best beer I’ve had of theirs.

Transfer from BA review on 1-27-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a mahogany brown color with a big and thick cream colored head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading to leave a good level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is strongest of a chocolate and caramel smells. Mixed with these are aromas of some roasted malt and a light aroma of a nutty nature. Taste – The beer is drier then I would have expected from the nose. The taste begins with a roasted malt and lighter caramel sweetness. From the initial roasted malt, which creates a base for the taste of the beer, comes an increase in the caramel sweetness and some flavors of brown sugar. These sugar tastes get strongest at the middle and begins fading more toward the end. From the middle to the end, while the sugar flavors are fading, come flavors of nut and some hop flavors of an earthy and herbal flavor come into the taste. These flavors take the taste to its end where they leave a lightly bittered roasted flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thinner to average side in its creaminess with a carbonation level being rather average. The medium body and carbonation made it rather easy drinking, although a slightly lower level of carbonation may have been more appropriate for the roasted and nutty flavors of the brew. Overall – A decent, not too sweet brown ale with some nice hop flavors. A nice easy drinking brew.

A nice brew that I picked up in Baltimore. I thinked I bought more Penn brews here then anything. Clear, bright brown colour with a creamy frothy top. Aroma is very nutty and enticing. Taste is so pleasent, ecspecially since it’s not super sweet like some browns can be. Great beer overall.
