Bottle, bbotmc. Deep sienna-brown. Dark fruit aroma of plum, some nuts and port wine. Tastes sweet, a little alcoholic, but all in all fruity and nutty and somewhat earthy. Heavy, bitter finish and fruity mouthfeel. Very good and warming winter beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown pour. The aroma is rich and chocolatey. A rich malt profile and a soft toasty sweetness. Has a moderate earthy bitterness leaving it a very well rounded and balanced product. Rich and malty. Really lovely brown ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Somewhat hazy brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, chocolate, and some dark fruit. Taste nutty and toasty, with woody notes (wood bark comes to mind) and some burnt caramel. I would call hopping excessive for style, but than I guess this is an American brown, not an English Brown, so I suppose not. Good autumn beer
