Served in a snifter. Thanks, Chris! Some caramel and toast. Dry and quite a bit off. Very weird finish.

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.

For an often boring style.. This is pretty good. Thanks shrubber85. Aromas of milk chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Nice sweet caramel and coffee flavors with a finishing hop bite.

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.

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.
Overall Impression: Thought this was pretty decent but not amazing. Definitely worth trying. Could use a little balance.

Finally I discovered that I am not really into brown ales. Well, malty and sweetish with some big nutty aroma in the back. An ok one but I thought it was a bit difficult to drink.

Bottle from gopherfan99 - thank you, Steve. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt, bread and cake. Taste of mild malt, barley, mild choclate, dark bread, cake and mild hops. Light bitter finish. Good and solid Ale, enjoyed it.

Really good brown ale. It is very close in flavor to Railhouse Ka-Bar brown. Give it a try.

You dont tend to see many good malty browns out there and in my opinion this one of the better ones I have had. That being said my first beer was a Newcastle and have always been a fan of the style, always trying new ones as they appear. This is still one of the better for the style.
