Dark orange and copper colored. Grey/medium tan head. Spicy gingerbread introduces this one, with some wheat, wood and cola following, ending with a light touch of scotch. Very interesting, and a unique brown ale.

Great toasty carmelly brown. Carmel malts contribute a big portion of this beers flavor. Almost no hop aroma and mainly contribute the the bitterness at the end. A great malty brown ale.

Reddish brown with a nice staying tan head. Very creamy character. Light nutty flavors and not overpowering. Good choice for a cold night’s drink-fest.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Frothy, off-white head -- rather diminishing -- with nice lace. Clear and deep reddish-brown. Texture was light, soft and creamy; some watery sensations here and there, but they were easily overlooked. Nice flavors and aromas in this beer, even though they're a little subdued. Sweet, nutty and chocolatey. Maybe even a little woody, too. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Doesn't hit you over the head with flavor, but I thought it was pleasant to drink. Pretty dam good brown.

I stopped by the Dam brewery on the recommendation of ecrvich. It’s a nice little place and good place to stop on the way back from Vail to Boulder. The color of this beer was pretty good, nice and brown (obviously). Very nutty. Nothing about this beer, however, jumps out at you, a very light bodied beer. I look forward to the rest of my sample pack.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good brown color. Slightly watered down but still with a nice nut profile and some coffee. A fuller body would improve this beer a lot.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little light bodied and lacking any strong malty flavors, which I like in a top notch brown ale. Not bad though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2006 Draught. Body is medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, nuts), trace hops (herbs), with a light note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty weak and flimsy.
