Bottle. A creamy, dark beige head of finger-thick size leaves lacings. Light brown in color. The aroma is roasted and toasted, with bread and some dried fruits. Notes of chocolate and nuts too. A faint bitterness in the flavor, with roasted malts dominating. Chocolate notes, some nuts and dried fruits. Smooth on the palate, full-bodied and semi-dry. A faint bitterness in the finish. A pretty nice one, but a bit weak I think. 140515

Draft at T&P; pretty cool drinking in an old train station. Dark brown, bronze pour with a thin, spotty head. Nice malt aroma. Dark roasted malt and coffee bitterness in the taste. Good brown; not boring.

Smells of caramel and brown sugar. Taste is also quite sweet but more chocolatey, like chocolate milk. Just a hint of nutty/woody.

Good recommendation from the folks at Craft Pride in Austin. Reminds me of the Lagunitas Brown Shugga. Dark brown pour, with dark fruits, brown sugar, and chocolate malts. Nice and smooth, and not overbearing. Lovely brew.

Delicious malty brown aroma with oat, maple, molasses, roasted barley. Airy, dirty-white head. Flavors share a lot with the aromas with vanilla, more oakiness, and milk cocoa scottish ale tastes added. Oh yeah, its deep brown, opaque and has a whispy, dirty, white head. Finish retains a lot of chocolate and bitterness.

On draught at Hay Merchant. This brew pours brown with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, hops and toffee. The finish is sweet with a roasty malt aftertaste. Decent overall.
