Pleasant surprise from the Brew Works. Pours a mahogany brown withy minimal head and lacing. Aroma is sweet, burnt, and malty. Taste is different for a brown ale. With a combination of malts, hops, nuts, and caramel. Very enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub, July 2006. Not my favourite style, but this one was pleasant enough. Rather pale for a brown ale - mid copper colour really. Fairly malty, but these are lighter, more nutty, malts and the caramel elements are not too pronounced. It also has a touch of hop bite and a notably clean mouthfeel. Not a typical Brown Ale, which was probably why I quite enjoyed it. More Newcastle than full-on malt in style.

A decent brown ale, has a bit of a roast element to it, as well as a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap-pours a full, foamy light tan head that laces with dark copper color. Aroma is dark malt, dark fruit, sweet. Taste is dark malt, burnt caramel-towards coffee/chocolate, bitter hops, dark fruit, roasty. Good carbonation. Starts out slow/not quite my taste but ok, by ½ way I’m enjoying this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this on tap at BBW and it had a nutty flavor going for it which is accompanied by a slightly wet finish as with the other beers I had in the sampler. This style is pretty big in PA with the Troeg’s fans but I really wasn’t drawn back to this particular brew. I do love some of BBW’s other offerings but this one doesn’t seem to fit. I’m not sure the offering of this I had was of optimum quality so I’ll try this one again.
