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.

BBB63 (6557) - 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.

Dogbrick (11480) - 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.

Not bad. Looked dark with some ruby around the edges. Not much of a head. Smelled like caramel and roasted nuts. Tasted a bit weak and thin, but some good malt character and again roasted nuts. Decent beer. Given the area, a good beer.

On tap at the brewery. Clear dark brown with medium to light beige head. Aroma is subtle sweet biscuit and nuttiness. Flavor is dry and nutty with some chalk and heavily biscuity. Medium body and active carbonation. Pretty tasty though too dry and light bodied for my taste in a brown.

Bought a bottle at Crown while driving through the Point. Aroma wasn’t complex nor overpowering would agree with other reviewers. Malt was more nutty and had a roasted initial taste. Light in alcohol as well. Not a beer to search out, but not one to throw out either.

Draft: Nearly clear.........woody brown. Aroma is lightly nutty, malty. Taste is light chocolate, nut, malt. Nothing surprising, but good.
