Pours clear light brown with an off-white head. Thin mouth feel, decent aroma of coffee, hints of chocolate and caramel. Not to bad, but feels like a stout/porter knock-off.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is berry, toasted malts. The flavor is chocolate, roasted malts, yeasty, berries, slight woodiness. A well made brown ale. Reminds me of the chocolate covered jelly sticks.

A solid brown but nothing special. Pours a somewhat pale brown with a fizzy head that quickly fades. Malt and a hint of nuts.

Not a bad brown. I would like to see a longer-lasting head. Also, mouthfeel was on the thin side - needs a little more body.

Beautiful brown. Smells of nuts. Sweet and malty. A tad too sweet for me. Very tasty. Thanks Ryan Arp.

Bottle pours ruby brown with floaties and khaki head. Aroma is smooth slight sweetness with roasted barley and a little tobacco. The taste is frothy and malty, very malty, moderately roasted with a little fruit in the finish. The carbonation is light as is the body for a darker brown, to fit their "easy drinking brown ale" concept. For a standard American brown it?s enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle picked up at Beertopia Omaha, opened in Exira, Iowa. Hazy, dark brown appearance with an off white head. Roasty, nutty, a bit charred aroma with light notes of fruit and wood. Burnt, roasty caramel malty, a touch smoky, lightly fruity flavor with a smooth finish and relatively little in the aftertaste. Easy enough to drink.

Very smooth. Brings a nice balance but leaves something to be desired with the flavor and complexity.
