Draft at Moriartys. Poured a very dark brown with just a hint of red/orange against bright light. Foamy off-white head. Slight lace. Aroma a bit thin but nice deep full roasted nut flavors. Almonds/cashews/hazelnuts. Burnt biscuits with nut butter. Well mixed. Nice dry finish for a Brown Ale.

Bottle at the airport brewpub. Pours a very dark brown color with almost no head on it. Nose is definitely nutty with just a little bit of toasting to it. Taste is quite malty and slightly thick. Decent taste, but nothing special.

Nice clean aroma, medium brown you can see through, of cream head with a little lacing. Clean caramel, sweet flavor with sweet slightly cloying back end. This one surprised me. Better than I thought it would be.

Very surprised to find out I havenít rated this "standard" before. Solid brown ale with a myriad of nice, mild, requisite brown ale flavors. Looks beautiful! Little thin for me. Overall, session recommended.

Bottle. Dark brown color, medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, nuts, caramel, and hint of tobacco. Medium sweet taste. Body medium-full, texture on the creamy side but too much, dry finish. Overall this is an excellent brown.

On draft at Blue Monkey. Nice notes of roast and nut, mild chocolate finish. Hints of earth and tobacco. A little too thin in the body, but I enjoyed it.

Bottle: pours dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma is toast, nutty bread. The flavor is nice. Itís a malty, nutty smoothness. Itís wonderful. This is a nice example of an inoffensive beer. Itís nothing that will make people rave, but it slides under the radar as a great beer.

Bottle at Monks Porter House.
Clear dark brown with a small head. Aroma and taste of light roasted malt, some chocolate, dried fruit, nuts and syrup. On the thin side, drinkable but nothing to write home about.
