Draft at Barley’s Knoxville. Pours brown with a half inch of khaki foam that doesn’t leave any lacing. Not a lot on the nose. Notes of toffee and nuts on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid example of style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from jbrana- thanks again, Justin! Pours a deep brown-amber color with a small beige head that settles into a ring and film. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, brown sugar, caramel, and chocolate. Flavor of nuts, tea, toasted malts, wet tobacco leaves, and a hint of apple. Light-medium bodied, with a toasty, leafy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good brown.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear dark brown with a one finger tan head.
Aroma of caramel, coffee, cocoa, along with some toasted malt. Really a nice roasty character with this beer.
The roasted characteristics continue into the taste. Some cocoa and coffee up front with caramel in the background. Toasted malt and maybe a little pipe tobacco. A light bitterness emerges towards the finish with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.
Overall, a run of the mill brown ale that doesn’t really stand out from the pack. Although it is fairly refreshing and a local brew that I would probably get again sometime.

A pretty nutty aroma; brown color. Decent. Some maltiness, sweet and a bit sticky but not too bad. Finishes too sweet for me.

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost no aroma, off-white head, light roasted flavor with a dry, lightly carbonated finish. A little generic if you ask me.

Clear red brown color with thin white lacing. A lot of roasted nuts on the aroma. Smooth and creamy mid palate with a nicely sweetened finish. Great example of a nut brown.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. Clear, deep copper-brown, with a lasting half inch of meringue. Big aromas of dark-roasted nut and earthy bittersweet chocolate. Flavor is the same, with some graham cracker and a hint of caramel apple. Nice finish of char and prickly green herb. Medium body is soft and smoothly carbonated, with a great balance between the caramely malt and the touch of hops and roast. Almost an old style English porter; excellent brown.
