Poured from a 22 to a pint glass, it pours a deep brown with thick tan creamy head. Aroma is nutty and sweet, with a roasty nutty chocolate flavor. Not generally a fan of brown ales, this is very creamy, smooth and an easy drink. Taste is smoky, somewhat burnt nutty, malty flavor that is very smooth. One of the better brown ales I have tried to date.

This is pretty good too. Lots of sweetness, but tasty enough. Certainly good packaging. Make me drink more brown ales.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with light tan head. Aroma of faint chocolate, extremely faint brown sugar, nut,and light toast with a tad of burnt caramel with earthy hop presence. Flavor is much the same with a earthy hoppy bitter in the finish, fairly dry. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body with high carbonation. Overall, I am glad it wasn’t expensive.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with a tall, chunky tan head that has great retention. Aroma is toasted nuts, sweet malt, brown sugar, a touch of sweet caramel and floral, herbal hops. Flavor is brown sugar, toasted nuts, toasted butter, sweet, crusty, white bread, a touch of roast, light chocolate and herbal, citrus and grassy hops. Palate is medium bodied, dry throughout and (a little too) highly carbonated. Pretty tasty brown ale, though a little high on the boozy burn and a bit to dry, I’m guessing lots of brown sugar was used.
