This is the single micro draft they have at my local ... it’s brown, to be sure. Relatively thin and headless, this is a predominately sweet beer with a bit of nutty roastiness. Not bad, not great, but still a thousand times better than the other choices.

Amber with a white head. Has a roasted caramel smell to it. Tastes of slight chocolate, caramel, as well as some malt and a little vanilla and earthy tastes. Not very bitter and no real pronounced flavors.

Nice brown/amber color.Small light tan head that faded quickly and left little behind.Malty aroma with a bit of caramel and a little roastiness and a bit on the sweet side but not overly done.Nice flavor of burnt caramel and malt with slight sweet flavor up front changeing to a mild bitterness at the end with a mild hop presence.It might not be a great brew but it is definately a brew i could get used to and turn into a nice session brew.Thanks go to Matt_Dinges for sending this brew my way.

My roommate brought some of this home when he went to Nebraska for his job. It is a pretty damn good brown ale. Not as good as Pete’s wicked but damn good nonetheless.

Very solid everyday ale. good chocolate malt flavor in a dark brown ale. A flagship ale for this brewer. Seems to have a wide audience as this one can be found on tap in many bars and restaurants in this ABC-dominated area.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear coppery caramel. Thin, foamy vanilla head. Sparse, big bubbled carbonation. Earthy aroma, chocolate, grass and toasted hay. Mellow, gentle with a lulled carbonation. Metallic notes ride the earthy malt base of mildly toasty, bittersweet chocolate and nutty flavors. Dry. Medium light body. Intriguing mix of malt flavors, with a touch of smoke mid way. Smooth and easy going. Finishes cottony, dry and bready with a long aromatic grassy hop finish. Earthy? Third Stone? Nice touch.

Auburn appearance, little head. Sweet malt, a nice subtle choclateyness and light hops in the nose. Body is choclatey, with an odd milky mouthfeel. Good malt presence with iron notes coming through. Finishes dry. Thanks Shorlin, via Oakes!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, dark brown w/ red accents. Aroma is of bark, hinting at bread crust, pecans and tobacco. Fairly full body, enhanced by the low carbonation and touch of oiliness. Malty front with light nuttiness leads to more iron-tasting middle. Finishes with earthy, toasty notes and an increase in hop dryness. Straightforward flavours very similar to the aroma. Thanks Shorlin!

Deep red-brown. Low but nice carb. Nice super malty nose. I may have to let thi swarm up a little before I finish it. Time passes.... Pretty nice. Warm, solid malty taste that lasts and lasts.
