12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark brown color. Thereís about a fingers worth of light mocha-shaded head, also. It isnít the most impressive retaining head, but has a nice texture and nice lacing, as well. S: The first whiffs bring a pleasant chocolate-coated peanut character. After it opens up, some nondescript esters and a touch of acidic twang enter. While nothing about the aroma is wowing, it certainly smells pleasing enough. T: The flavor, actually, is quite forward in sweet caramel and toffee, as opposed to the nutty chocolate suggested on the nose. I donít even get much nuttiness in fact (maybe a twinge on the swallow). The finish is a touch roasty/acidic, though not overwhelming. All in all, itís decent, well balanced - and unexciting. M: Medium in body, the slight roasted touch on the back end cleans the palate acceptably. The finish errs on the sweet side, though. Itís drinkable due in large part to its vibrant carbonation. O: Everything about this brew is íniceí. Nothing more, nothing less. Like most brown ales, it feels safe. Normally safe isnít good, but considering some of the duds Iíve had from this brewery in the past (oh hai, Serum!), I guess - for once - Iíll say íbetter safe than sorryí. This oneís on the pile of beers Iíd gladly drink again, as long as I donít have to buy a 6-pack of it.

Strong toffee aroma with a touch of caramel, pours a clear (but very dark) amber with a full off white head. Sweet toffee and caramel notes carry the flavor, with just a little bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Higher carbonation also helps to lift the sweetness away. Medium body, and very drinkable. Iíll probably revisit this one when it cools off outside.

Chocolate, toffee, caramel, candy taste. Pretty sticky overall. Interesting brown ale, but wouldn't be a go to for me.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear reddish-brown. Two finger almost white pillowy head some lacing and retention. Aroma of coffee and hazelnuts. Taste is somewhat sweet with just a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of caramel, hazelnuts, faint chocolate, toasted malt and grass. Itís a pretty decent brown ale.

A sweet, chocolate aroma . The color is dark brown, nearly opaque with white head. The taste is, well, like tootsie roll. A nice sweet mellow aftertaste. A good brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice take on a brown ale. Color is a little darker than most brown ales. The taste is quite creamy and the finish is nice and sweet.
