On tap, pretty dark pour with this head. Iím so used to nut brown ale aftertaste that this beer really surprised me. Out has a sweet caramel flavor that I think I secretly wanted in a brown ale. I wish it had a better aroma, it would have recieved a higher total score. One of the better browns Iíve had. Easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours with a small head, dissipates fairly quickly but maintains nice lacing. Smooth mouthfeel with nice level of carbonation - enough, but not too much. Lightly sweet and malty, but not overpowering. Roasty, but stops short of a porter or stout. A simple brown, but a good one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A finger of light tan head on a fairly clear brown colored body.
The aroma is chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. It smells like a porter.
The taste is mild bitterness, roasted malt, chocolate sweetness and finishes on a bitter note. A good profile.
The texture is crisp with a little cream. The carbonation is on the higher, fizzy side.
Overall a good brown ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a clear light brown with a large light tan head. The nose has a touch of nuttiness with slight vegetal notes. The flavor has a touch of light roast with a nice nuttiness and simple earthy bitterness. Light to medium body with average carbonation and a medium finish. A pretty straight forward brown ale. Itís success is in itís simplicity.
