COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark brown ale has a gentle malt sweetness with a nutty, light caramel character that lasts into the finish. Brewed with imported english maris otter barley and fuggle hops. Its dry finish and low hop bitterness makes it readily suited to drinking in quantity. Refreshing yet flavorful.

Draft sample. Poured hazy brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and nuts aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectatios where met.

Dogbrick (8357) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Sample at Twenty Tap in Indianapolis. Pours dark brown with a medium thin beige head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, roasted nuts and hops. Light body with a sweet malty character with notes of toffee and mildly bitter hops. The finish is malty with a short sweet aftertaste. Decent overall.

BBB63 (6091) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Tap: Medium brown hue with a frothy off-white head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of walnuts, toffee, biscuit, earthy and herbal hops, and a hint of juicy fruit gum. The taste is biscuity, caramel, nutty and slightly spicy with some grassy Fuggle bitterness upon the finish. The mouth feel is medium-bodied with soft without being underwhelming. All in all a solid Brown Ale.

thedm (4952) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 27, 2012
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of frothy off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated cola brown colored body and a poor lacing. The initial nose was yucky and a strange brown malt. The mouth feel was mellow from start to finish with an off-tasting thick brown malt aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of brown malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

Patrickctenchi (3847) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Draft: Nearly clear.........woody brown. Aroma is lightly nutty, malty. Taste is light chocolate, nut, malt. Nothing surprising, but good.

tap at Dash In - Pours dark and mostly clear amber-brown with a small off-white head. It has a mild caramel malt aroma. The flavor is sweet, mild, and bland. There’s a little caramel and in the finish some rather generic hop bitterness. It’s light to medium bodied and overall a disappointment.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Draft at Crown as "Crown Brown." Pours a very nice coppery brown with a fluffy offwhite head. Nose is caramel and some burnt char notes. On tasting, moderate sweetness and caramel but the black patent or dark chocolate malt notes are off putting unfortunately. Hop bitterness is appropriate just overwhelmed by the dark roast notes. Meh.

On tap at brewery. Pours a clear glowing dark rich brown. Aroma is sweet brown sugar, nutty, molasses, moderately hoppy. Flavor follows, sweet rich brown sugar, molasses, hoppy, tasty sweet without any roast bitterness. Medium thin bodied, light fine fizzy carbonation. I liked it.
