Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a slight glossy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lacing was somewhat sticky but ended up sliding for the most part. The smell had a fairly nice roasty nutty to caramel to coffee to chocolatey sort of thing going on. Slightly malty sweet through a roasty underscore of a toasted toffee to caramel breadiness all around. The taste was there and it was mainly sweet but had a light roastiness all around and invasive but actually it wanted to be. Was it? Hmmm...I guess for the most part. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation finishes fairly smooth and leads to a stickiness Im not normally finding in a whole lot of brown ales in the finish. Weird, but inoffensive. Overall, brown ale, it sure is, its just a tad different in the mouthfeel/palate to me, but hey still worthy of having again.

Hazy orange amber color with thin white. Mild malty aroma. Slight roasted notes. Mild coffee notes on the palate with cocoa hints.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Pours a deep reddish brown with a quite thin tan head (at least from the growler, which tends to flatten beers a bit so it may be thicker from the tap). A hint of barley mixes with a hint of malt in the nose. Bitter overall taste with alcohol coming out a little strong (odd if it is really 5% like the description says), but lacking in much else.

JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Thin, watery dark amber color. Sweet nutty nose, but barely a hint of malt in the mouth. Light bodied and nearly tasteless, but hints of hops in the finish.
