Bottle. The pour was a hazy dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown creamy head that lasted a very long time, finally reducing to a thin cap and a medium collar which in turn did produce some good sticky lacing. The aroma was of a toasted cereal malt and a leathery yeast with notes of milk chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel, molasses and a bit of oats. The taste was extremely malty and a tad sweet with hints of caramel and molasses early on, and then became rather creamy and a little bitter with notes of chocolate and coffee towards the end. The flavor hung on for a good long duration letting an espresso mocha taste settle in wonderfully on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium in body with a light creamy robust texture and a mild to medium carbonation. Overall a brew that is an exquisite representation of this style, with the oats giving it a nice smooth, creamy feel and a great drinkability. Most definitely one of the best Brown Ale’s I have tasted to date...

Hazy brown pour with a white head. Smokey with chocolate and plum aroma. It has a full, smooth body with average carbonation. The taste mildly sweet with some roasted flavor and a dry finish.

strap (721) - Sindelfingen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 10, 2016
Dark and hearty. Like a bowl of oatmeal. Some tree bark flavor and earthiness. A well done beer, but something I have to be in the mood for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours brown with a big, white head. Nose is roasted malts with notes of prune and cocoa. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side for me. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Nice carbonation. Solid brown ale.

andrewje41 (2714) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Draft pour pint at The Hut. Pours a dense brown color with an active cream fizz head. I have to applaud this beer. A true brown ale, with nothing fancy added to my knowlege, that tastes amazing. Toasty chocolate aroma. Creamy flavor with toasted cereal, chocolate, and a smooth cream finish. Extremely well executed brown here. Loved it.
