There's a hint of hops that I don't think I've encountered in a brown ale before. There's also a nice mellow malt flavor.

Medium sized tan head with a good hang time, splotchy lacing. Nice clear brown/red hued beer, very good looking. Nice malty, chocolatey nose with some hop spiceyness too. Medium body. Light maltiness, mild nuttiness. Medium sweet finish. A little more bite would be nice, good session brew though. Nice brown ale.

Brown color. Aroma of malt, paper and roasted chicken. Balanced taste, with some malt, roasted malt, caramel, nuts. Quite pleasant.
Bottle, 2003-09-08, 7-4-8-4-14=37
Brown-amber color, creamy head. Nice aroma, original, changing from the light oatmeal, to the caramel, cardboard, coffee, light hop. Pleasant, with a quite good body, malty, with some roasted barley and hazelnuts, but most of all a very nice hop note. A positive surprise!

Pleasant nutty/chocolately aroma - hits you in a bad way the first sniff but that grows on you. Light off-white head with thin lacing. Just a tad bit watery. Pleasant nutty flavor with some underlying chocolate sweetness. Overall a good solid brown - love the label as well with the dog on it.

Good mouthfeel, just the right fizziness with dry, chickory finish and a little herbal/grassy quality. Nice looking bourbon-colored beer, good label, good cap. Pleasant bitterness, cocoa malting, moderate sweetness. A very good brew.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright chestnut colot with a smallish small bubbles head. Heavy, light roasted malt, nuts and hint of hops. While I not a big brown/amber fan this is the way one should smell. Rich feel. Flavors of earthy malt, light coffee and dark toffee. Finish is real sharp and bitter, near metallic.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2005 Dark ruby-brown with a frothy beige head that held on like Larry Mahan. Fragrance of nuts, toffee, and grassy hops. Pleasing taste of roasted nuts and rich malt flavors including caramel and chocolate. Medium-bodied with a mostly dry finish. A nice, flavorful Brown Ale.

A nice brown stain color to it with a decent amount of head. Had a nice chestnut aroma to it spread slightly over chocolates. These both intensify within the body and are joined with some type of interesting and not neccesarrily good funk. Aight, but not one of my favs.

brown transparent colors with a nice firm head..souring milk aroma was not too pleasant, especially with the added mustiness..same sour milk found its way to the flavor, added upon by some firm maltiness..just a lil' wierd in a not good way.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coffee, toasted malt, hint of caramel on the the nose of this dark brown brew. A sweet taste opened up the tasting followed by the citrus tartness. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable for a Brown Ale.
