Aroma is a sweet roasted scent. Color is a deep dark mahogany with good carbonation and a thin tight head that looks a little off white. Taste is rich, malty and roasted. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a easy creamy feel. Finish comes in malty with sweet caramel notes and a nice roasted nutty flavor. In the after taste the roasted gives way to a mild bitterness. This is a very good Brown ale, very well rounded with good flavor.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a very dark brown with a one finger tan head. Nose of caramel and toffee along with some roasted malt. A hint of coffee as well. Caramel and coffee flavors really jump out in the beginning along with a pleasant nuttyness. A light bready grain becomes noticeable about halfway through along with a light bitterness that nicely compliments the sweetness from the malt. Mouthfeel is smooth and a little sticky. Overall this is a really solid beer. One of the better American Brown Ales I have had.

I?m not normally the type of guy that likes nut ales but thus one is smooth. There is a hint of nut and chocolate. It finishes with wonderful palate. Overall I would buy this beer again.

355ml bottle. Rich chocolate aromas are the first thing that you notice as you pour the beer and then your eyes are to drawn to the heavy brown, black colour and the evn layer of sticky tan foam. Faintly smokey and bitter dark chocolate flavours at first.

AROMA: Hops, some malt some sulphur APPEARANCE: deep reddish brown, tan 1/4" head that lasts TASTE: Malty nutty bold taste bigger than a regualr brown ale. sweet notes and a dry finish PALATE: medium to light body with hops apparent on the tongue and a nice carbonation. OVERALL: a Big bold balmy nut brown ale with nothing to aplogize for. whaps you in the face with caramel and nuts, finishes with a hop bite. Cool.

This pours a dark brown color with a light beige head. The scent is rather mild with hazelnuts. The taste is bold and nutty with a great blend of robust malts, caramel malts, and nuts. The texture is smooth and is an overall pretty good beer.

Silvan7 (1060) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 26, 2013
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.

ContemplateBeer (1969) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Aroma: Cocoa powder rules the malt scene, and is met with a very light dash of spicy/floral hops. Cocoa tends toward chocolate fudge as it warms. Appearance: Nearly opaque dark brown with a foamy tan head that settles into a creamy tan ring. Flavor: Mostly cocoa up front, but with undercurrents of lightly spicy hops; really surprised by the depth of the malts for a 5.5 beer- cocoa into dark bread. There’s a little citrus/floral kick towards the finish, concluding with a slightly bitter dryness. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: In my opinion, a severely underappreciated example of the style.
