Aroma is very light, color is dark smooth and even with light airy head. Flavor is very malty but still light for a brown ale with a clean finish without a heavy aftertaste.

Good stuff!! POured a nice dark brown with a off white head that stayed. Aroma was malt and chocolate. Tasted smooth with caramel and malt and some slight sweetness.

Dark chocolate brown hues followed by a full nouget colored head. Raosted malts and some nutty aromas. Lighter body, maybe a bit too high on the carbonation. Gritty chocolate and soft carmel flavors with a brisk bitter hops finish.

Pours a hazy deep brown with a thick tan head that has good retention. Aroma’s are nutty and light smoke. Flavors are similar with a solid bready malt backbone. Fairly dark for a brown ale. Good medium++ bodied beer. Drinks nicely with the 5.1% abv. Enjoyable.

Dark brown in color. Smells really strong of chocolate. I can also taste the chocolate.

Nice chocolate brown colored draft pour with a small head and decent lacing. Chocolate, nut and caramel notes in the taste. Sweetness balanced nicely with hops. Very nice brown ale.

Immediate taste or roasted chocolate. Perfect bitterness which subsides rather quickly.

A super drinkable brown ale that is worth a try. Its fairly sweet in flavor with some chocolate coming through as the dominate flavor. Despite the description i found the palate a touch watery, but the plus side of this is that its a light feeling beer that is very easy to drink. Overall pretty good

In the style of ’New Castle’, this beer was pretty good. Deep dark color with creamy not so big head. The nutty flavor has a slight bitter to it like cocoa. One to add to the fridge if you can find it.
