A rather old rating, finally getting entered now. This moose came from John’s Grocery in Iowa City, and poured a dark brown with a modest tan head. Smells of warm toasty malt and coffee. Pleasant nutty roast flavor, just a bit thinner than I’d wish for initially, but a few more sips in the light-leaning body seems important to the very refreshing briskness of the beer. Faint woody bitterness. This could pass for a mild, which is a very good thing in my book.

A decent average brown ale. Pretty dark in the glass. Nice 1 finger tan head. The nose was mild malt. Taste was also a mild malt but with a hint of hops on the finish. I found it a little watery. I wouldn’t turn it down if it was offered to me.

4/5/15 (Bottle) - Dark brown pour, thick generous tan head, minimal carbonation. Roast malt aroma with a hint of caramel. Very smooth and pleasant beer to drink, nice roasted malt taste, not very high ABV but nice kick. Very good offering.

Has beautiful brown color with white coffee colour of head that unfortunately while thick and big at beginning disappears very quickly. It has mild carbonation which in this case helps the ale by making it very smooth to drink. Taste of toasted malts with hints of caramel and chocolate. Bready malt after taste with little bitterness. Really enjoyed it.

12 oz bottle from Whole Foods. Nose is bland, a little yeast and not much else. Taste of toasted malts with hints of caramel and chocolate. Smooth with mild carbonation. Bready malt aftertaste with little bitterness. Mildly sweet which makes it session-able. Over all, an enjoyable brown ale.
