A nice brown ale and a nice change of pace from the hoppy beers I have been drinking lately. A very smooth beer and recommended.

Nice brown ale, malt-forward but sweetness tempered by nice roasted flavors. Mellow in the mouth, hop bite keeps the finish clean.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty aroma - chocolate, biscuit, roasted nuts. Ruby-brown in color, thin wispy head. Sweet up front, with malt flavors coming through in the middle, then a grassy hop flavor and bitterness showing up in a moderately dry finish. Medium body, kind of watery. Not a bad session beer, although overall not very interesting, as is typical with this style.

Thick, foamy head; a creamy look. Malty smell. The beer felt almost creamy going down. A very pleasent taste and a wonderful finish. A standout!

brownish red colored pour with a thick creamy head that lasts till the end. chocolate malty smell as well as taste. this is a good brown, but not as good as rogue hazelnut. easy drinking

Out of the bottle. Gorgeous reddish brown color with a beautiful full-bodied head. The aroma was a chocolaty malt. The taste was pretty awful as the dominant flavor was metallic. Finishes pretty sweet.

12oz Bottle No Date. Poured a clear brown with a thick and fluffy head that seems to have legs. Has a doughy malt aroma with notes of caramel, nuts, brown sugar and a subtle hop pesence. Medium bodied and smooth with light carbonation and a dry finish. Flavor is of chocolate malt,
and a light hopping with notes of vanilla and brown sugar. Overall a good brew from a great brewery. Thanks Louis.

Pours deep brown/burgundy with a great head. Smells of toffee, caramel, toffee. Tastes malty, with hints of brown sugar, molasses, caramel, slight coffee, and even almonds. Very complex. Finishes smooth, malty, strong, and slightly sweet.

Taste is very enjoyable. Malty, chocolate and a tad bit of nuts. The hops provides a pleasant surprise at the finish. A little thin on the palate but overall, a really good session. Gets an extra point because my wife likes it.

12 oz bottle-old chicago, Lakewood, CO. pours a deep mahogony hue with small off white head. aroma is very hoppy for a brown ale. palate is nice for a brown ale too-long chocolate finish with slight nuttyness mixed in. hops are spicy and slightly piney. well done brown!
