From a growler. Aromas of toffee, dark chocolate, a bit of smoke, and a decent amount of roasted light malts. Itís a reddish-brown color as opposed to a more traditional flat brown and itís a bit more translucent than a typical brown ale. It starts with a light sweetness, more roasted malts/toffee flavor throughout and finishes slightly bitter. Itís definitely on the low side for carbonation for a brown ale, but I imagine thatís by design. Itís very smooth as a result, and it lets the bitterness hang around just a bit longer on the finish.

Draft @ RDU Indigo. Low aroma, a little sweetness. Dark brown color, white head, dissipates quickly. Taste is pretty sweet. Didnít notice any hop bitterness. Med bodied. Overall, a pretty good American Brown. Not really my style.

Can from Whole Foods Market in GA. Aroma is sweet, toasted malts, chocolate. Taste is a touch of hops with a nice malt underbelly. Very balanced...reminded me of something (anything) from Anchor

Can. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average to large frothy tan head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, nuts aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good brew.

Aromas are grapey, caramel, fig, toast, some chocolate. Somewhat clear, brown, minimal head fades pretty quickly. Mostly dry, fruity, plum, nutty, bitterness as it finishes creates a pleasant balance. Medium bodied, good carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2015
Location: Draft at Cowbell, 2/17/15
Aroma: It has a sweet aroma of chocolate, toffee, and caramel malts.
Appearance: Pours a clear reddish-brown color with a beige head and decent lace.
Flavor: It has a fairly sweet flavor, with a minimal bitterness.
Palate: Has a creamy mouthfeel, light-medium bodied, clean and easy drinking.
Thought this was pretty decent but not amazing. Definitely worth trying. Could use a little balance.
