This is a nice brown ale, very nice chocolate mixed with a nutty flavor. Smooth and creamy.

good beer had a deep brown color. It tasted almost malty then finished mildy sweet without a harsh after taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with reddish tint, medium tan head. Mild chocolate/nut aroma and flavor, just a little sweet. Thin-medium body, fairly smooth and not too bitter. Not bad at all.

At first I was apprehensive given everything else from this brewery. However, this is just a damn good beer. Not even that infamous aftertaste to speak of.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a medium brown with ruby hints to it, medium white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is doughy, chocolate, some nuttiness showing through, and a very minimal hop note towards the end. Flavor is mainly chocolate, some caramel, mildly hoppy finish. Fairly thin in the mouth, feels smooth due to light carbonation.

Again.... Way too much chocolate. I was very disappointed with this Brown Ale, no complexity to speak of.

Mahogany with a fairly tall offwhite head. Nice malt aroma. Characterized by a coffee flavor with a slight hoppy bitterness occasionally popping through.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. It's been so long since I've had this one and probably need to try it again in order to rate it fairly. Much nuttier than I remember with a bit less hop character. Has a lot of class, and rather reminds me of Boyne River--not the hoppier, richer brown ale I remember from years ago.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nut brown color, off white head. Sweet aroma with a touch of fruit and roast. Sweet with a slight bitter twang. Good brown ale.
