A slightly sweet and malty brown that is a little dry in the aftertaste. Drinks easy and goes great with barbecue, roasted veggies, pizza.

Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Reddish-brown color with a medium tan head and spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and nuts. Light to medium body with a sweet roasty character and notes of bready malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet and malty. Decent overall.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 An unusually dark brown ale, with the corresponding flavor: i.e., darker roast malt with a hint of smoke. Sweet and bitter in near equal proportion. Nice, lasting aftertaste of dark malt with a bit of spicy hops.
Overall: A well-crafted brown ale that leans towards a porter.

Pours clear dark brown with an off-white head.
Sweet nutty malt aroma.
The flavor is mildly sweet, nutty.
A little thin but better than many.

Mahogany appearance with a small beige head and good lacing. Roasted malt aroma of caramel and chocolate. Sweet malt flavors, moderately hopped, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Well rounded, medium-to-full bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel.

Best up front for me. Looks appealing, dark brown with reddish tint and a tan head. Nice aromas of light chocolate, fresh bread and some cookie sweetness. Well balanced brown ale but I found it just a little thin and leaving perhaps just a bit too much hop bitterness. Still, a solid brown ale.
