This dark brown ale is slightly sweet with a caramel and dark fruit finish. A show case of fine English malts, floor malted the old way. We use pale, chocolate, and crystal malts to produce a complex, but easy drinking dark ale. Very reminescent of northern English ales.

Cute name. Cute story. Bad beer. This stuff is boring- watered down, bland and not that exciting in any way, shape or form. If anything, this beer could be sweeter. If you want a good nut beer, Rogue is the only way to go.

Decent English style with bready notes from a nice English Malt finishing with more caramel than brunt notes. The aroma definitely has a basement smell in the best way possible. Definitely sessionable.

On tap at Nate and Nick’s in Bryson City. Nice roast nose. Well balanced. Bigger body than a lot of brown ales.

12 oz bottle. Bottled on 03/31/14. (Food Lion) Boone, NC.
Clear reddish brown colour with a small light tan head. Toffee, malt, nutty dryness and some mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is toasted malt, nutty dryness and some chocolate. Brown Ale indeed.

12 oz. bottle. Dark brown, with a reddish hint and a small, tan head. The aroma is nice, light roast, oak, sherry, peat, and floral hops. Sweet and malty, with a light bitterness and some booziness. Medium body, creamy, a little acidic, and malty. This is an excellent brown ale! Nice, mellow nose, and good balanced flavor. Overall an approachable, complex, and delicious beer. I’m impressed!

Brown beer with a foamy tan head. Roasted grain nose with some brown sugar and nutty tones. Sweet beer with lots of brown sugar, dark toast and some tea flavors. Some dark fruitiness, a hint of spice and some bitter coffee finish it out. Pretty tasty brown.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Boulevard Ales pint glass From: Trader Joe’s in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C. Price: $1.67 (I think) Purchased: July 26, 2014 Consumed: July 28, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a dark red, almost mahogany color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki white head that dissipated pretty quick. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top. Light bubbles coming up from the bottom. Smelled caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, chocolate, espresso and some rye. Tasted roasted nuts, caramel, toffee, chocolate, espresso and hot cocoa. Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. Not a bad brown ale overall. It grew on me a bit as it went down.
