Poured as a taster at the brewery. Nice brown ale with a bit of caramel on the palate. Finishes smooth and if quite drinkable. A good session ale and bound to be good with brewpub-style food.

Bottle at home. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy light tan head, medium-short retention with good lacing. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, and lightly toasted malt, earthy hops and figs. Flavor is malt dominant with light to medium hops and bitterness, a pleasant chocolate note and a dry finish. Medium-light body and medium carbonation.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown with tons of tan head, lots of lacing and nice carbonation. Aroma of nuts, roasted malts and caramel. When it comes to taste it actually feels a bit to watery, caramel sweetness and malts. It’s an OK beer but not great.
