COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep, bold nut brown ale beautifully balanced with rich dark malts and a complex hop character converging to reveal a simply enchanting elixir.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Nice big chewy brown ale. Some chocolate and roasted malt really come through with the hop spice balanced. Doesn’t really fit into any style, it’s special on it’s own. 37 out of 100? Does anyone here like beer?

My first reaction was nit had an initial metallic taste. It didn’t have the malt smoothness ihave learned to expect from a Brown. It seemed to be over-hopped, leaving a hop dominant aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2008 Looking for a wee bit more on this one - as always. A nice but faint hoppy and chocolate and nut like aroma. A very smooth taste though medium to light bodied. I enjoyed this one but would not go out of my way for it.

A deep red beer with a fine but disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted bread. The flavor is dominated by roasted malt with notes of wood and cowberries, before it ends on a dry note. It has a nice palate but tastes a bit like a nut porter.

It’s a brown ale. It’s a little roasty, not too dry, but there’s not too much to it beyond that. It’s not even passover Kosher!

Dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma is nutty, malty, a little sweet. Smooth, a little bit of a creamy feel. Not bad.

Standard nut bown ale, altough it’s kind of spritzy with the carbonation and nothing special in flavor.

Dark brownish red body with medium off-white head. Decent malty flavor. Not awful, but there are better out there.

12oz bottle. ruby brown pour with a minimal oily head. right off, the hop and malt aromas are present and very up-front. there’s also a smoky/hazy element in the aroma, like forest dew; also caramel hidden underneath the layers. while it does taste like a brown ale, it shows likenesses to both pales and porters. it’s a pleasant mix. the finish is a tad oaky, and the mouthfeel is a bit spicy (clove).
