Pours brownish with off white head on tap, aroma has nice sweet notes of toffee, nuts, molasses, some burnt toast, with a touch of roast. Taste is nice with notes of toffee, molasses, some dark fruit, nice nut notes with a slightly roasted but mainly sweet finish. Good brew, but needed a bit more.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Chestnut brown, with clear ruby tones. Aroma of light cocoa, sugar cookie, and assertive nutty notes. Texture was a bit bland, a bit too light bodied with not enough carbonation. Not punchy enough. Lots of smooth nutty brown malt on the flavor. There is also some light cocoa tones, but little else. Finish is very fleeting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ brewpub. Somewhat translucent brown appearance. Fairly string nutty characters on top of brown maltiness in the nose. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel with below average carbonation. Quite nutty brown malty flavor that’s very smooth and very easy drinking. One of this place’s best beers.

I was excited by this beer since I love brown ales. I am disappointed. The flavor is good, but the beer is very thin and watery. Needs more body. Kick this up another notch and it could be great.
