COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Southern English style Nut Brown Ale with a bit of chocolate character to it. Dark in color, but light in body, and leaning toward the sweet malty side. You'll really have to look for the hops in this one.

Tap to Growler. From growler. Poured dark, amber notes when held to the light. Bubbly white head. Aroma malty with hints of caramel and wood chips. Flavor sweet and malty. Hints of caramel, nuts and oak up front. Fruity plum notes in the end. Nice roasted aftertaste. Medium bodied. Easy to drink and very smooth. Great for late summer nights. My growler was gone before I knew it, easily the favorite of my group.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2012 New rating: Had this on tap and from a growler, much better than I thought originally, has a more refined attitude and goes down oh so very nice - good job scott improving this brew! old rating: Oops, somebody at the Bocktown got this tap handle mixed up with Corsendonk, Corsendonk Pater (Abbey Brown Ale)-----Unbelievable bargain! Pleasantly flat. No, seriously, this is like Corsendonk with all the complexities, but much better in price. Definately top of the style.

Comes out of the tap a rich warm brown, barely translucent, with a fairly thick pale tan head. Aroma is rich and malty with hints of cinnamon, smoke and caramel. Flavor is mainly malty and has nutty, smoky and spicy tones - one can really taste how the malt is roasted. Texture is smooth and very pleasing.

Had this on-tap at bocktown tonight. Sampled a few times before but this was the first time I ordered it. A-Body is a somewhat cloudy medium brown color that is served with a 1 finger or so creamy white head. Head slowly subsides to a thick collar and leaves some traces of lacing all the way down the glass. S- A big tart sourness comes through in the nose first followed by a bit of roasted malt bitterness. T- A bit of tart sourness upfront with a big roasted nutty malt background. The flavor is consistent all the way through. P- Medium carbonation and light, easily drinkable body. O- Though I can’t quite put my finger on everything about this beer I do like it. I really like the slight tart character that it offers. One of the better English browns that I have tried. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-25-2008 01:57:35

Medium brown color. Wonderful nutty, malty aroma and a rich malty flavor profile with hints of toffee and toasty malt. An excellent brown ale.

Transfer from BA review on 4-3-12 - Served in 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a medium brown colored body with a light tan head. The head faded fast giving way to very little lacing. Smell - The nose is of light roasted malt mixed with a bit of caramel sweetness. Taste – The taste was of dark bread and lightly roasted malt flavor with some caramel sweetness. There were hints of nuttiness mixed in with the taste as well. Mouthfeel –A medium bodied beer with a moderate level of carbonation. While only a medium bodied brew, with it only being 3.7 % abv, it is much creamier then would be anticipated, quite nice for its lightness. Overall – This is a very drinkable beer. Lighter in abv, but with good taste and actual quite a surprising feel to it.

On draft at Blue Dust in Homestead. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Blue dust has a nice selection of drafts, and I pretty much tasted them all, so I got this brew. Dark brown pour, no head, look flat, but had a very nice taste to it. Complex brew, oak, nutty, and caramel flavors. Roasty aftertaste, medium bodied. Beer went well with homemade pierogies.

On tap at East End Brewing during the big tasting. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. The aroma is earthy, nutty, toasted malts and caramel. The flavor is very similar; a nice earthy brown malt dominated brew, lots of sweet chocolate and biscuit flavors. Very quaffable and nice.
