Pours a rich copper with a thick white head. It has a fruity, slightly malty aroma. The taste is of grape nuts/wheat berries and a slightly sweet maltiness. The mouthfeel is pretty watery, which is a little detracting.

Dark red brown, with a persistent low head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a hint of dark roastiness. Flavor is lovely... Dark roasted barley over biscuit and mild sweetness. Medium body with fair complexity. I would drink this again.

Pours a medium bright brown color. There isn’t much head and it is a bright white. This beer smells a little sweet and almost fruity. Not a lot on the nose. It tastes of chocolate and coffee with a bit of a malty/nutty aftertaste. Light bodied, drinkable, just not much flavor. I guess I am getting used to the "American" style Brown Ales.

Excellent beer. A little sweet with a slight nutty flavor. Tastes like the nut brown version of fat tire.

Bottle. Pours, imagine that, brown with thin beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and a certain nuttiness. Sweet on he front end and somewhat bitter in the aftertaste department. Nothing stellar, but tasty nonetheless. Wouldn’t have another.

12oz bottle, thanks to Thunder. Somewhat hazy brown / red color, minimal off-white head. A bit more sharp, moderate carbonation. Decent mild chocolate nutty malt aroma, with a more sweet taste. Some caramel in there. Ok, but I’m not really a huge fan.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber with a full off-white head and good lacing. Taste is heavy with sweet caramel and hazelnut malt. It is a big brown ale that is a tad filling, leaving a coating on the tongue. Decent, but not one to seek out.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with a 1 finger tan head. Decent retention.
Smells very nutty along with coffee and roasted malt. Some caramel as well.
The taste is roasted malt along with a very prominent nuttiness. There are some coffee and caramel notes in the background along with a pleasing hoppiness. Mouthfeel is a tad bit watery but ok.
Overall this is a very solid brown ale and one that I would seek out.
