smells pretty deece, lightly of coffee and caramel... unfortunately, it tastes kind of like watery soy sauce with an aftertaste that minorly resembles coffee, light sweetness at the end... feels a little thin, palate wise. okay.

TAP - A good ale. Nothing too stand out but nothing at all objectionable. I was hoping for some more flavor out of this one, it seemed a little subdued, nothing wrong with that though. A solid choice for sure.

A nice malty ale. Had this at the Oregon Brewers Fest. Slight hop profile. Good aroma.

Alluminum bottle. This beer is clearly dominated by roast malts - too much so - it is out of balance for the style. It’s leaning towards being a Robust Porter. Needs to have more caramel malts to soften the presentation but overall what it really needs is less black malt. That being said, if I wasn’t drinking this against other brown ales I would say this is a pretty good drinking beer that has a nice hop complexity for a brown ale.

On tap at local minor league ballpark. Very brown (fitting for a brown ale no?) with good balance of malt/hops. An easy drinking beer with subtle flavors.

Nice beer that has always been a great go to beer. Here in Boise we can get it just about any time.
CO2 was a little high on it for me this last tasting. I pulled the grass and some spice out right away.
Thanks for the nice beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Twelve ounce bottle poured medium bark brown with a hint of red, small white head with yarn-like lacing. The nose was of molasses and hay; the taste, of brown sugar, honey, and wheat with faint citrus. The body is silky and smooth and of medium weight with mild carbonation. The finish was both sweet and sour. I think I tend to rate browns more harshly due to my preference for hops and wheat, but I think I still prefer Rogue Hazelnut and even Samuel Smith Nut Brown to this.
