A canonical brown. Looks fantastic. Aroma is nutty, hint of roast, and some good malt. Flavor is just excellent, nice malt with some good hop hints. Finish is clean and good. You can’t go wrong with this brown. Avery’s kinda known for their huge beers, but this is one of their best, methinks.

Pours a dark brown with a tan quickly dissapating head. Light body but complex flavor for a brown ale. Little brown sugar flavor but not overwelming. Slight chocolate flavor also. Nice ale over all.

not quite a miss, but their weakest offering i’ve had to date. understated nose of chocolate malt and a touch of bittering hops. flavor was the strongpoint at first but became a little less pleasant as the beer warmed. dry finish. Overall, an average or slightly better than average brown ale. So far I like the big ones better (Czar, Hog Heaven, Beast)...but the IPA, Red, Stout & Porter are all better than this."
