Bottle. Pours brown with a bit of tan head. Aromas of caramel, malt, toast. Pretty straightforward brown ale, not bad.

Deep brown-amber color with a thick tan head on top. Thin lacing sticks to the glass after each sip but doesnít stick. Brown sugar, toffee, wood, and a little bakers chocolate in the scent. Some candy-like fruit too. The flavor shows sweet toffee, Belgian yeasty notes, figs, a light candy note, with a spicy finish. The scores here are a little surprising. I thought this was quite solid.

Reddish brown color, off white head. Nutty aroma, light cocoa, bread. Flavor is pretty awful. Very sweet, cloying almost. Light nuttiness. Not worth drinking at all.

Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a dark copper reddish color with an off white head that quickly settles to collar around the glass. Caramel, slight banana, cinnamon, and clove. The aroma has something in that is offputting to me, canít put my finger on it, maybe burnt popcorn. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet start and a mix of flavor including; caramel, buttery, and some banana. Not the biggest fan of this one. Little alcohol notes. Some lace. The look and the mouthfeel are the only good qualities, all else fails for me. After several sips, I dumped this one out.

big sky belgian brown. Scotch ale color...clear reddish brown with a soft sandy head. A+f are nutty, yeasty, caramel, a touch of smoke (yeast?), faint citrus. F has some chocolate and banana-like notes on the finish and AT. A+F of very brown sugar. Iíd prolly never drink this again...3.0 MF is creamy...almost annoyingly so. Crisp but a little sludgey. AT is very nutty. 1/13/11 on tap at pap

Pailhead (6425) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2011
UPDATED: APR 3, 2011 On tap: The aroma consists of roasted nuts and light banana. It pours an orangish-brown with good transparency when held to the light. It has a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate along with faint banana and apple. The finish has a light roasted nuttiness. Iím not a fan of the Belgian yeast and nutty combination.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Toby. Pours a dark red-brown color with a medium off-white head. The aroma is mostly a sweet brown ale with some yeast. A nice flavor; leans strongly toward a Belgian Ale, yeasty and sweet, some toasted malts, nutty. Very drinkable. Enjoyable for sure. Quite nice.
