BunchABeer (30) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Pours a clear dark reddish-brown with a small creamy light-brown head. The aroma is all nuts and malt-- a typical Brown Ale. Flavour of malt, hops, chocolate and nuts is a little too mild. Medium bodied.

alexsdad06 (6873) - Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2015
12 oz. bottle at home from notes. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have some roasted malts, a decent shot of chocolate, spicy hop character, some earthy notes, body is lighter and the mouthfeel is thin and watery. OK brown ale.

Bready, malty and thick. I taste a hint of chocolate but the caramel shines through the most. Little hop presence, malt aroma.

12 ounce bottle. Mahogany color topped with a moderate creamy beige head. Faint roasted malt nose. Hints of burnt caramel and toffee. Sweet roasted malt flavor is pleasant and spicy with cocoa and cinnamon-like notes. Spruce-like hops in midtaste balance this nicely. Slightly warming though the 8% alcohol is well hidden.
