Tap. They serve their own beers in 20 ounce glasses. As you would imagine it was brown. Smell of roasted malt and the taste was of very roasted malt with a nice hint of nut. Not as full bodied as some I have had, but good none the less.

I really like a good robust Brown Ale, and this one is it. This was the second beer I tried and is deeply nutty and rich. The floavor last forever.
