I found this brown ale quite enjoyable. Great mix of pale and chocolate malts, even a slight toffee flavor coming through.

From bottle. Pours a deep brown color. Aroma was all nutty mat with a little chocolate and caramel. Sweet. Taste follows with a small bitter ending. Clean finish.

Clear dark chestnut pour with a thin off white head and very light lacing .... aroma of roasted, chocolate and caramel malts with a slight nuttyness .... taste is slightly nutty, roasted, chocolate and caramel malts ... very malty ... thin bodied with a very light bitter bite in the finish ... easy drinking brown ale

The beer is reddish brown with a thin beige cap. The aroma is pretty weak, offering subtle hints of bready malts, biscuits, fruit. Light bodied, with moderately low carbonation. A decent beer, but generally unexciting. Some toffee and caramel notes. Probably won’t have this one again.

This is a one of the best brown ales I have had. Full flavored with a long finish that is heavy on dark fruits.

Not too sweet and plenty bitter: I would call this a porter over a brown ale. Malt profile leans toward well-roasted. I believe the featured hops is Chinook: smokey, piney, a little minty. Chinook and chocolate malt is one of my favorite combinations in a porter, but to critique it stylistically it didn’t have what I look for in a brown ale in terms of malt/hops balance, sweetness, and supporting nut/toffee/toasty flavors in the grist.

Bottle from Brusin’ Ales - reviewing from note - a solid, but a bit boring, brown ale.

Tap at Bier Garden, Asheville. Amber-brown-black, looks unfiltered. Thin, oily beige head. Sweet dark malt aroma, a hint of dark fruit. A fruity amber stout, this is unique. Chocolate covered plum. Vanilla, chocolate. Quite reminiscent of Saranac;s Chocolate-Amber.

Could be a solid beer if not for the lack of an identifying flavor. A very bland beer
