stevoj (3536) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Bottle from Grocery Outlet. Average brown ale, but not even up to the standards of their Downtown Brown, so what’s the point? Spicy, only in the faintest sense. Dull pour, slightest elements of chocolate, cinnamon and assorted other "winter" spices.

edwardbass (754) - Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Murky dark brown with a medium tan head that goes away quickly. Nuttty, chocolate, a bit of spice. A bit more carbonation than I’d expect. It’s pretty decent for someone who’s not a fan of the style.
