Brown from bottle. Aroma is mild malt caramel. Taste is very slight - almost tasteless. Overall, quite bland though as it warms something pops out. Definitely for the session heads.

Montana! Tap at Aces and Ales Tenaya. Pours dark brown with a faint white head that fades quick. Aroma is brown bread, maybe a hint of chocolate. Smooth and easy drinking, chocolate and brown bread show up in the flavor as well. Thereís a bit of (goldings?) hop bitterness to balance. A bit more carbed than it probably should be.

A terrific brown ale from the States and there are not many of them! This pours with a nice head and sends out an enticing aroma of spicy hops that has the senses tingling with anticipation. The flavour is clean and tasteful. A well executed beer.

Dark brownish red with some orangey red highlights. Faint chocolatey? malt smell. Taste is malty sweetness of a slight chocolate bent with enough bitterness in the finish to balance it out. Creamy, full feel.

bottle @ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Clear very dark ruby brown color, persistent tan head cover, bands of lace. Taste is dry roasted malt, like chalk on the tongue. It adds earth and light spice in the palate before turning to light hops to finish. I would never guess thus was a brown ale - more like a porter or stout.

Pours clear brown with some pale brown head. Nose is chocolates, caramels, breads, biscuits, toasty, and maybe some flowery notes as well. Flavor is similar, semi-sweet finish, balanced and delicious. Very good and drinkable.

On draft at Sanfordís Pub and Grub in Cheyenne, WY.
The beer is dark chestnut with a thin beige collar. Malty aroma with notes of dark fruit, brown bread. Smooth and pretty light bodied on the palate. A mild sweetness throughout, finishing with a delicate hop note. Pretty good.
