Ok brown. Nice aroma nutty hoppy slight chocolate. Nice brown pour. Taste not as good. Thin. Nuttiness in flavor with coffee bitterness. Not quite right

Pours a dark bourbon brown with a one-finger tan head. Rich caramel, toffee, and chocolate nose. Texture is surprisingly thin and carbonated given the nose. Horehound, toffee, and a bit of nuttiness in the flavors.

12oz bottle in MA. Dark brown pour, foamy tan head. Lighter aroma and taste than the look of this beer. Light chocolate malts, banana nut bread. Mild fruit and very light chocolate. Fairly light.

Glass at the Green Dragon. Pours a deep cloudy brown color with a small white head. A big sweet malty nose, some coffee. The flavor is dominated by bitterness and coffee, light roast, sweet nutty flavors, some toffee. Pretty nice.

(12oz bottle) Malted nose, somewhat peat and burnt sugar. Earth and minor booze flavour but too thin. Above average.

A nice brown ale indeed, solid brown color, chocolate hoppy aroma. Taste is good, featuring chocolate notes with a dry finish, but could be more assertive. Very smooth with a relatively light body.

Bottle @ home. Colore marrone scuro, solo alcuni riflessi rubino. Schiuma color beige scuro. Profumo tostato, pieno di frutta secca,e luppolato erbaceo. Il corpo medio , la carbonatazione gentile e il piacevole grado alcolico la rendono di una facilità di beva impressionante. Il gusto è asciutto, di mallo di noce, un po’ tostato e con un caldo alcolico lieve. Non è il mio stile ma mi ha favorevolmente impressionato.

Bottle. Pours a brown color, with a light tan head, Smells of nut, malt, maybe some chocolate, and some hops. Taste is chocolate and nuts, with some malt on the back end, but a pleasant milk chocolate flavor. Decent body from a brown ale. Overall not too bad, enjoyable.

12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, displaying a coppery/brown color, with fairly lasting, brownish tan head froth, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was roasty, with some malty creaminess, light chocolate, caramel, and a little nuttiness & woody hints. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the flavor remained roasty, with a medium, earthy, and tanniny hop bitterness, some lingering nature, and a touch of smoke. Nicely malt smoothed, so no real bite. Tasty, and pretty darn quaffable!
