Smooth, creamy palate with some nice carbonation biting at the end. Sweet flavor up front. Brown sugar, caramel, and bitter chocolate. Finishes dry with citrus and muted pine.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a can that they were selling dirt cheap 4pks at the store today. Extremely foamy when I poured into a glass. Dark amber to mahagony hue with tan/vanilla colored head, once it went down. Smells a bit stale but still pick up some nut, caramel and coffee tones. Weird type of bitterness on the finish, almost acidic. Not the greatest brown ale, probably not the freshest either.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A full flavored brown that plays up spicy yeast notes alongside its earthy maltiness. Big caramel malt is in the forefront with hints of smokiness and cocoa throughout. A nice hefty mouthfeel gives this one enough brawn to keep up with tough red meat dishes. A truly great brown.

How have I not had this before? Very solid brown ale. Nutty and caramel malt, very low hopping, comes across as rich without being thick.
