Pint on tap. Clear copper-brown with a small ring of cream. Aroma is toasted nut with the shell, cocoa and a touch of caramel. Flavor is the same with a bit more cocoa. Light-medium body has a nice balance, maybe more to the dry side than most browns. Medium carbonation.

Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation.
Pleasant, simple nose, but too sweet and syrupy in the mouth to drink much of.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is one of those brown ales that veers into porter country which is a-okay by me. Itís brownish read w/ a thin but long-lasting head of fine bubbles. This is a malt-focused brew w/ roast and caramel flavors in about equal measure. It is pleasantly full bodied w/ creamy carbonation that gives just a bit of prickle. This is a rich and full flavored brew that is still smooth and very drinkable. Brown ale is a style that doesnít turn a lot of heads but if you are a fan of the style, youíll love this stuff.

New brewery for me and this one is of high quality. Nutty and roasted malt flavor with a chocolate flavored finish. Really easy to drink and smells of roasted malt. Had out of a bottle at home
