A hearty brown ale that benefits from the silky mouthfeel provided by oatmeal, pairs great with Cigars.

Bottle. Aroma is sweet malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Notes of cedar, aged tobacco leaf and some american hops stand out. The body is much lighter than expected. Flavor is a little sweet. Impressive, but not mot imkpressive.

Just assumed I’d rated this one. I’ve tried many times now - base and variations. Brown ales in theory aren’t my thing -- the sweet brown sugars the culprit. This is one of a few that are starting to break the personal stereotype. The sweetness in this one comes more from the malts -- brown sugars are balanced out well with bitter spice and tea vibe. Makes this one of the few drinkable browns for me.

One of my favorite brown ales. Pours dark brown (almost like a porter) and shows nice notes of malt on the nose. The smooth mouthfeel drives a really deep and decadent note of malt and grains. you get an almost roasted nut/cocoa flavor that drives into a smooth finish. Loving this beer.

Pours a dark brown, more like a stout than a traditional brown ale. Strong malt nose with whiffs of coffee. Taste is also somewhat similar to a stout--chocolate, coffee, malt, and a bit of hops. A really nice beer that is essentially a toned down version of the Bolita Brown Ale.

Draft. Pours dark brown with a small lingering light tan head. Aroma of toasted malts, oats, caramel and a touch of chocolate. Flavor was earthy with caramel, oats, light caramel and some nuttiness with a dry finish

Bottle served in a dimpled mug. Murky dark with amber hues. Short beige head. Big bombin’ aroma and this is still at fridge temp. What is that?! Cedar with an apple laquer. Also toffee and caramel. This ain’t no ordinary brown. Lets try it... Light SOUR flavor. A-ha! Thats what I was nosin’. The tartness is more apparent as the beer warms. Medium body, oily-thin texture, soft carbonation, and a light bitter, dry finish. Thanks Matt.

16 ounce sample at Midtown Sundries in St. Pete, FL. The aroma has lots of roastiness and huskiness present (oats, in hindsight). Light choco aromas and caramel hints, too. Pretty nice. A little hazy brown cola-colored body with a light brown head that is strong and leaves great lacing behind. Starts with scant metallic notes before this becomes quite nutty, chewy, and roasted. Nice sweetness present. Not too thin. Does have a bit of saltiness and a miniscule amount of diacetyl. A nice brown ale.

Bottle:   Interesting Brown Ale, a bit malty, mild sweetness, a little earthy.   Darker brown in color, some ruby hues, large frothy beige head.   Finish is really roasty, with some lingering hints of cocoa and figs/dates.   A little chalky too.   Low hop, has a very slight hint of tartness to it.   Seems okay, but doesn’t have the malt backbone that I would want in a nice Brown.   Seems a little too simple and thin.   Older bottle?   Would like to revisit as this one was less than stellar.
