COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth, full-bodied nut brown ale, lightly hopped with a hint of roasted and crystal malts. This ale is dark in color without the heavy taste of porter or stout.

Pours up a clear brown, and moderately thick, off white head. Light toasted malt aroma. Rich and robust, slick and sublime, lots of dark malts with hints of molasses sweetness round out to a nice nutty taste. The latest batch have been a little more watery than before.

Clean and crisp but lacks the earthy nuttiness and chocolate character of other browns. A bit dry with some powdered chocolate. Mild hops and a nip of tartness shows in the finish. Meh.

nota (47) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy dark-orange/mahogany out of the bottle; minimal off-white head. Weak aroma with maple syrup, toffee, and roast hazelnut. Thin body and the nuttiness shows up later than you’d expect. Slightly woodsy and earthy but unoffensive. Not a lot of personality is given up but in exchange it’s very drinkable.

drjoeng (837) - SINGAPORE - JUL 13, 2016
5%ABV. Brown Ale. Tapped out light brown. 18ºSRM. Nose is beery. Some sweet aromas that are reminiscent of honeyed dates and Chinese red-date tea. Some honey sweetness and organic funk. Phenol in the nose. Mouthfeel is watery. Palate has nutty, black bread, hazelnuts. Ton of wheaty phenolic palate flavors. Finish is brief and beery.

Good beer, slightly thin on the body for what I'd like in a brown, a bit high on the carbonation. Not much nutty flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beachmaster (447) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle into a pint. Pours a clear medium brown, with a small tan head. Nose is dark roast malt and cocoa. Taste is that of a typical brown, with a bit of nuttiness and a dry finish. Oddly sweet in the middle, but the hop finish kills the sweetness. Not bad, but nothing great.

adasko (1831) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 10, 2016
Porter aroma, cacao, bit of chocolate, nuts. Like this aroma. Normally don’t really fancy brown ale aroma but this I like. Taste is complete different. It much more like brown ale. Bit nutty, caramel, malty. Easy, drinkable, not what I would expect from brown ale. It’s ok, but nothing special having on mind it’s from California.
