Surprising amount of flavor, a good brown. Malt heavy, of course. Syrupy, smoky. Nose has chocolate and a bit of nuttiness along with the maltier notes (carameL). Thanks Ron!!!

This is a well done beer. Light hop and lots of toasty grain. Nice nose. Mouthfeel is very nice. This really is a good beer based on abv.

Great beer, my standby whenever I visit family in Sheridan.
Just a hint of caramel in the initial whiff, with a lovely chocolate color and just a nice bit of head.
Smooth finishing beer that I find myself coming back to again and again.

Medium dark pour with a small head. A little coffee, wheat, nutty taste. Not at all bitter at the end, which I like. Very drinkable beer. Brewed semi-locally to me. A total winner in my book!

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance - The beer is served a deep brown tiny color with a tiny head. The head fades fast to leave almost no lace on the glass.
Smell - The aroma is light with light roast cocoa and caramel smell. A little bit of brown sugar and earth are there as well rounding out the smell.
Taste - The taste begins with a roasty taste with a bit of a caramel and cocoa sweetness. As taste moves on more sweetness comes to tongue with some loss of roast and a little bit of coffee coming in. In the end, a little bit of earth and a bit more sweetness comes to the tongue to give a slightly sweet but moderately roasty taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel - The carbonation level is rather low with a rather thin body and feel. The low carbonation is nice for the flavor profile and tastes, but the feel is a bit thin. Overall, it is OK Mouthfeel in the end.
Overall - An OK brown, but nothing all to exceptional.
