3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A small, rich aroma and a murky brown appearance with a tiny head. A nice dry taste and solid hop finish. A good beer.

Pours a cloudy brown. Hopefully bottle conditioned as some others have commented. A finger deep tan head that quickly disappears. Some lacing left on the glass. Caramel and butterscotch ore present on the tongue but I also notice a slight metallic flavor. Nice mouth feel. I would like to try a fresher sample of this.

Clear dark amber pour with a rather thin off white head. Pleasant chocolatey aroma. Malt/chocolate flavor with well carbonated mouthfeel and a very slightly sweet finish. Nice example of a well crafted american brown ale.

Nice and drinkable. From a can. Not overly nutty which is just great for me.

Pours a very deep brown with complex-for-a-brown smell of autumn. Good malt flavor and texture. Quality beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a mahogony brown with some cloudiness from yeast. Pillowy head presents a slighty weak nose of nutty sweetness and light smoke. Flavor is a procession of malty goodness, evoking hazelnut and pecan, followed by a building dryness characterized mostly by a smoky smooth finish. I am not partial at all to brown ales, but this is an excellent achievement for the type.

Bottle. Pour was a cloudy dull red color with 3+ fingers of head. Brown sugar and malt is the dominate flavor, with hints of carmel, slightly bitter hops, and toffee. Very enjoyable brown ale.

Thick head when poured. Aroma was smooth. Brown, mahogany in color. Lightly sweet, medium bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation and a nice bitter finish. I greatly enjoyed this beer.
