Poured a dark amber brown. Light roasted, malty, sweet notes. Not too full bodied to the taste with a nutty caramel the sweet taste. A slight sour malt on the palate lingers after the drink.

Pleasant surprise. Not what I expected but still enjoyed, dark brown in color with a thin head, crisp carbonation, thin mouth feel, taste of malt, some fruitness, sourness is prevalent, the lingering sourness and then more warmth than you would expect from a 7.2 abv. Try it with an open mind don’t expect a Brown and you may like it. I did.

22 oz bottle from BevMo. Oak comes through at the end. Has a pleasant sour note. For five bucks and change this is worth trying.

Cannot believe the poor reviews on this one -- this beer is a STUNNING brown ale, and perhaps my favorite. Nuttiness on the nose carries through with dominance in taste. Chewy malt base, and some spiciness to round things out. Solid A in my book.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent, but kind of empty tasting beer. Pours a nice black with a tan head, and a good amount of sediment. Smells awesome, like vanilla, cinnamon and gingerbread. After the smell, you'd expect the taste to be as interesting, but sadly, it falls a bit flat. Starts off smoky, but then there is nothing past that. A hint of molasses, but almost watery after the initial bite. Easy drinking beer. Had in the bottle.

~Bready caramel flavor with roast and chocolate. Slight sourness in a good way. Somewhat watery.
