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

Poured from bottle into belgian glass. Aroma lacked the malty, rich sweetness of the style. No diacetyl. Appearance: nice dark brown color, poured with little head. Little bit of ruby if you hold it up to the light. Taste: nice, malty flavor, with a little toast. Balanced bitterness, but not really hoppy. Not really picking up fruity esters. Palate: Medium-full body, nice viscocity (from the oatmeal?). Moderate carbonation. Overall: a pretty good example of the style. Very nice flavor, would go very well with a hearty meal, or a cigar as they say.

Velvety, smooth taste. Chocolate and malt are prevalent to the tongue. Palate is a little weak but stays with you for a while. Overall, a good brown. Would get again.

Very good Brown ale. Has a nice nutty flair, light woody malts and smooth slick mouth feel. Tap

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
[355ml can] Pours brown, with a decent head. Nutty, caramel aroma with a heavy carbonation. Sweet and lozengy. On the flavour, the oatmeal really comes to the fore, the aftertaste is long and smooth, lots of caramel and toffee. The alcohol is really well hidden [18062015]

Pours medium brown, thin tan head. Aroma is faint, some toffee. Taste is great, lots of nutty roast, caramel, toffee, chocolate, an average dose of hops in the American style. Smooth but not creamy palate. Quite nice overall.

EyeAmBaldman (375) - Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours mahogany with a khaki head. Aroma is toasty nut with chocolate and coffee. Taste is dark chocolate at first and then some sweetness on the backend before the coffee hits. Darn good brown ale.

BillWyce (823) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Pours clear red-brown with a 2-finger light tan head. Aroma of nutty malt with a lot of char. Medium body, very slightly oily. Soft finish. Flavor of roasted nutty malt up front, giving way to a brief note of citrus. Mix of caramel and chocolate in the finish.

Tessic (926) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
This brown ale poured a deep amber colour with a big, tan coloured, creamy head. Scents include very ripe fruit, sweetness, caramel/molasses, coffee and paint remover??? First swig was sweet and slightly weak. Flavours of syrup, caramel and fruit juice. Finish is too much old fruit and a little too sweet.
