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.

This bottled brew poured a large head of light brown colored fine to medium sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a very good lace. The body was nearly opaque and dark brown in color with no visible carbonation. The aroma was very nice with a good blend of caramel malt notes. This was a mose excellent aroma for a good brown beer. The mouth feel was smooth crisp even and nicely balanced with a lingering brown beer aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of mild coffee mollasses and sweet malt. It is an excellent brown beer taste that I will definately seek out more of tor try again.

I have home-brewed nut brown ales and was real glad to see this in the store, and elated to taste just how good this beer is!

Had this brew on tap and its a damn good Brown Ale definitely underrated. Deep brown color, smooth texture with a good amount of body. For me the flavors consisted of some mild chocolate with a bit of hazelnut which is a great combination, however I wish the flavors were just a bit more potent. Overall this is a pretty solid brew, one of my favorite brown ales.

pours a translucent brown out of the bottle with minimal head and carbonation. tastes of roasted nuts with some mild coffee flavours. finishes with some hop on the tongue not to mention some stronger coffee/ roasted malt.

Poured into a 12oz glass. Aroma is very mild, but some roasted notes are noted. Color is very nice brown, with a thin white head. Flavor is where this brown really shines! One of the best I’ve had. Not to bitter, with roasty flavors coming through. Mouthfeel is very nice, full bodied with a mild carbonation making it very smooth. Overall one of my favorite browns, next to Moose Drool.

Bottle. Smells mild and sweet, pours light brown or dark amber. Almost no head. Bitter sweet taste with hints of chocolate and a coffee finish. Highly drinkable dessert ale.

Pours a reddish coffee color, lasting lace, a big gingerbread, movie malted balls, roasted aroma, nice hop/malt sweetness balance on the palate, though lacks depth in the middle, finishes malty and sweet.

Delicious and very likable beer. Sweet and malty brown. I’ve had a lot of tinny beers lately so this one was a refreshing change.
