Aroma is molasses and a hint of wood smoke. Taste is mainly molasses, a little hint of nuts, and something else I canít quite place. This would be great in the fall, but itís pretty damn good right now too.

Brown pour, quick tan head. Nutty malt in the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is coffee and chocolate, roasted malt, some cherries hiding in there. Finish dries with a hint of hops at the tail. Solid American brown.

Pours a translucent copper brown from the can with thin ring of tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nutty earth and hints of dark chocolate. Taste follows, clean and easy, lingering soy quality. Nice for the style, just not exciting.

Pour from 12oz bottle. Dark brown with thin cream colored head. Smell of chocolate coffee and alcohol. Palate smooth and light with nice flavor and finish. No real bitter end.

One of six beers on a flight at Bru Grill and Market, Lake Forest, Orange County on 21st May 2015. Chestnut red, no head. Malty, sweet and nutty in nature: my sweet tooth liked it a lot. A lot sweeter than any UK brewed Brown Ales I have had, but thatís OK and I enjoyed this.

One of the beers that turned me on to brown ales. Perhaps my favorite brown ale at this point, and I like brown ales.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle. A dark brown ale. Thin tan head. Slight malt aroma. The taste is the highlight. Light on the chocolate, vanilla, almond, a little bit of an earthy flavor. Slightly sweet, nice full mouthfeel. One of my favorite brown ales

On draft, I was impressed with the appearance of this brown ale, featured a solid ruby brown color with a thick creamy white head that retained itself for most of the pint. Unclear aroma of sugary malts, earthy hops. Taste was earthy hop forward, caramel and roasted nutty malts in the backbone of the flavor profile, then some chocolate malt in the finish and aftertaste. Earthy bitterness is slightly more salient than usual for a brown ale. Very smooth, light-medium bodied, moderate flavor intensity. Enjoyable and relatively complex for the style, but not extraordinary.
