Pen & Paper Log (Mar 2013)
c/o my friend Jesse, who brought it back from a trip out to WA.
Aroma - has a nice chocolate, nutty, and caramel aromas
Appearance - body is dark brown with an off-white head about 1/2"
Taste - nice nutty quality, with rich malts, coffee, chocolate, and roast malt.
Palate - body is medium-to-full, texture is creamy, carbonation is average in the mouth, and the finish is sweet and with a little hops last for a medium length.

From the notes. 12oz bottle. Pours brown, malt aroma, taste of malt with a kick of hops. Your basic brown, eminently sessionable.

I first had this beer when I was on field camp many a moon ago. Their description is actually spot on. Great creamy texture with a slight hopiness. Nice brown color.

Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a dark brown colored body with a full foamy white two finger head that slowly dies to a cap, a lot of foamy ringy spider web lacing appears.
The smell has a nice malty chocolate-ness up front with a substantial amount of assorted nutty flavorings back it up. Some coffee notes come in as the beer warms.
The taste takes those smells and flavors it with a bit of maltiness.
The palate is about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. There is a dry aftertaste.
Overall, Iím really impressed with this one and would definitely have it again.

Bottle pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma of caramel maltiness. Flavor of the same; nice caramel with subtle chocolate hints. Creamy mouth-feel with minimal aftertaste. Decent brown ale, nothing to write home about.

One of my first craft beers - chose it for the name and didnít regret it. Excellent color and texture with a taste that would lead you to believe it has a higher abv. Excellent.

I love brown ale. I love it, I love it, I love it. This one looks like brown ale ought to except that it comes from a bottle rather than a handpull. Appears on the ruby side of brown with a cream coloured head. Aroma of rich caramel and nuts: walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts - everything I enjoy in brown ale. Silky body with some sweetness from the malts. Lovely stuff and not dependent on masses of bitterness to save the day. The day is saved because it is tasty autumnal ale that I am sadly drinking in summer.

Great beer, its dark, malty, sweet, even has hints of smoke flavor and super easy to drink.
