Pours a beige head with a pretty dark brown body. Malty aroma with nuts and caramel. Taste is molasses, nuts, malts, and caramel. Nutty finish. Sort of semisweet. I really enjoyed this brew.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2008 Bottle courtesy of beastiefan2k. Pours a slightly cloudy brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt with mild nuts and caramel. Flavor of caramel, malt and mild nuts, itís slightly bitter in the finish. The body is medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. This is a good brown ale, but I would have liked it more nutty.

Pours brown (duh!) with a tan head. Smells of sweet malt with some nutty biscuity hints. Tastes sweet with some nicely balanced nutty hints with a nice caramelly finish.

12oz bottle via trade with beastiefan2k- thanks Eugene - Pours caramel brown with a fair creamy tan head that stays pretty well. Aromas of nuts, caramel, and slight chocolate. Flavor is good hazelnut throughout with a nice caramel background and a touch of chocolate. Some good toasted malt flavor too. Palate is creamy smooth and medium bodied. A nice robust brown. Good flavor. Enjoyable..

Thanks, Beastiefan2k and Notalush...slighly hazy dark coppery/amber body. thin head of frothy bubbles around the sides of the glass. Mild aroma, with nuts (of course), specifically hazelnuts, mostly malts and very little, if any, hops. Dry finish, which is more bitter than I expected. Not bad at all for a brown ale.

notalush (5734) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Bottle from beastiefan2k (thanks, Eugene!) - copper/brown pour, with small lace - quite a hoppy aroma, with some biscuity british maltiness going on, light nuttiness, some caramel, earthy character - fairly grassy, dry, herbal, with quite a high hop profile for the style - slight caramel sweetness and bready malt flavors - mineral/chalkiness on the back end - tastes more like and ESB than a brown ale - fairly tasty, but lacking ay memorable or distinguishing character.

12 oz bottle poured into motel styrofoam cup, classy. So lets say the color is brown, but it pours with a large, strong foamy beer. Aroma is a bit of a kicked up brown ale, wet bark maltiness, earthy hops, very woodsy, wet forest thing going for it. The taste is a bit more low key, lightly caramel wet wood. A light bodied, medium bittered. A thirst quencher with a slight kcik, revisit-able.

First, this was an ok beer. I wish the flavors were stronger. But all around it was enjoyable nothing special though. The flavor lasts on your palate for a fair amount of time leaving a slight bitter taste on the back right and left corners of your palate. Color reminds me of the color bottle itís served in. Again not a special brew but enjoyable.

Excellent domestic brown ale. Nice combination of dryness and sweetness. Also very smooth.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 I had to rerate this one. I had it out of the bottle, and it was very average and boring. I pour it into a pint glass and voila - itís a lot better! I have no idea why, but doní t drink this one straight from the bottle.
