"never had it in a bottle, only on tap at the Bend pub. pretty good stuff for a brown ale. obviously, nothing overpowering, but a nice, roasted , malty, and well balanced beer. Buzzsaw (bottles as of 2008) is good as well."

A great brown ale, definitely one of the best that I have had in a long time. Rich and well-layered on the palate, with some creamy chocolate, a bit of roastiness, with some sweet toffee and a somewhat salty nuttiness. Hops are approachable, giving a welcome bitterness in the finish.

Pours a nice dark brown color. Aromas of nuts/chocolate/caramel. Flavor is nutty with a nice sweet honey chocolate taste and a little coffee bitterness. This is a great beer.

blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2006
Beer pours ruby red-brown with lasting light-brown head. Body is clear and lacing is spare. Nice malt backbone with toasted grain, toffee, and nutty aromas. Citrus hops. Mouthfeel is a little on the thick side for my preference with this style. Smooth and easy to drink, though, and not too strong. Have another.

15-Dec-05 (22 oz bottle: $3.49 at Bottleworks in Seattle, WA) Since I also have a bottle of this beer, I thought it should get a more thorough rating, or at least be rated in a more "rating friendly" and controlled environment like my living room in front of my computer rather than a bar. This is definitely a mild brown ale, with very light roast in the flavor and nose. Mild sweetness, a fair amount of chocolate, and a bit oí nuttiness in the flavor, and likewise in the nose, except that the beer does not have a very sweet aroma. Chocolate increases slightly as the beer warms up. Body is medium, with fairly mild carbonation. Light-medium brown, but with nearly perfect clarity. Light tan head pours to an inch in height, settling to a ring in a pretty normal fashion. True to the brewing style of Deschutes, this is an understated brown ale that has a nice flavor without trying to knock you over the head showing it.

07-Aug-05 (Draft: Deschutes Brewery in Bend, OR) Ooh, this smells nice! Malty, very chocolaty, lightly roasty, the nose has me looking forward to tasting this beer. Itís not as chocolaty, but the roast almost takes on a sesame character. Itís fairly sweet, but the roast helps to keep the palate pretty clean and dry. Moderately bitter, but not especially hoppy. Light brown in color, with a light tan head that shows solid retention and a dense crochetwork of lace. Definitely the best of the seasonals Iíve tried today. (7, 4, 7, 4, 14, total 3.6)
