Never got around to rating this before, because I knew I would have it again! A fine brown ale with a lovely chocolate maltiness and a nice American hoppiness. I have a feeling that you can’t really go wrong with Brooklyn Brewery - Garrett Oliver knows his stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Quite tasty, but not overly complex. Nuts, chocolate, caramel. With some orangey, spicey hop characters. Tasty stuff, and a lot better, and less sweet, than other Brown ales, which i liked.
