From tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown to almost black with a creamy, off-white, lasting and lacing head. Smooth toffee roasted malty with a good bitter counterbalancing. Yet a slight bit too bitter into the far finish leaving more bitterness than toasted malt in the balance.

Opaque dark brown beer. Big pale tan head. Tangy fruit nose. Smooth palate with fine carbonation. Rich malt base, not bitter or roasty. Nice hops - piney and mildly bitter. Mild red berry fruits. The malt has soft chocolate and very mild coffee. Finishes smooth and semi dry with pretty bitter pine that provides a robust and lengthy bitter linger. Reminded me a lot of Kernel Indian Brown Ale but not quite as good as that stellar beer.

Growler muled by oteyj, thank you! Murky brown color, medium tan head. Aroma of subtle chocolate covered pine needles. Taste is brown bread, chocolate, raisins. Low carbonation, but could be the growler. Medium body. One of the nicer brown ales I’ve had, and definitely the nicest aroma.
