Aroma is licorice, molasses and medium roasted mts and slight floral hops. Taste is extremely rich, almost chewy malts with notes similar to aroma. Appearance is an orange amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Not much of an aroma to it. Nice dark brown pour with a respectable brown foamy head (on tap sample). Has a ton of beautiful malt flavours, truly this is one of the best examples of a fresh and crisp malt I have ever had in an ale. A perfectly balanced level of hops help to mellow out the brew and add a nice subtlety.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can best by March 8, 2015.
Glass: New Belgium globe glass.
Appearance: Hazy garnet hue with a dense and firm tan head.
Aroma: Light fruitiness with hints of caramel and cocoa.
Taste: Mild brown ale with light caramel, cocoa and fruit notes..
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: I was so excited for this, but it’s lacking in many ways. It’s not bad, but darn it’s more thin and lacking than a brown ale ideally should be.

Good for a brown ale. Just don’t really like brown ales. Decent palate bitter finish. Just ok.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: Chestnut brown color, semi-translucent with a slightly soapy beige head, bubbly & quick to fade to a thin collar. Aroma is full of nuts, toasted malts, a touch of earth, & some faint cocoa dust. Flavor is nutty, toasty, malty, semisweet with hints of some leafy hops to help balance out. Light cocoa powder in the finish with a lingering nuttiness. Fairly typical brown ale. Medium bodied, just shy of creamy. Not bad.

The roasted malt flavor comes through in this rich bodied beer. This has been a family favorite for quite some time, having to pick it up on the way home from long road trips, but now much easier to find in local grocery stores.
It has become my new summer boat beer with it now being available in cans.

An easy drinking beer, lots of chocolate, caramel, nuts, roastyness and malt in the flavour, with a hint of spiciness and bitterness from the hops. Full mouth feel, not overly carbonated.
