Not a fan of this Fairly malty in the aroma, this is a seriously nutty brown ale, mostly hazelnuts, and too much so for me.

From a 16oz can. Nice and dark appearance. Initial flavors are malty yet not too. Good sizzle and a fairly mild attitude as well. I even think there is this slight wild thing in there as well on top of the roastiness. Probably one of the better brown ales because of its laid back low alky attitude, just MHO.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can, from Perfect Pour for $3.66. Mostly clear brown / red color. Pours with a good one-finger khaki head, that retains well. Leaves good, thicker lace. Awesome chocolate and nutty aroma up front. Light to medium body, but the mouthfeel is great. Much more full and creamy than expected at 4% ABV, it’s pulled off pretty well. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet, and a good longer chocolatey nutty aftertaste. Very nice, very easy-drinking session nut brown ale! Would happily chug. Much better than expected. Like Apwilla said, this brown ale has the perfect amount of hop bitterness to counterbalance the malt sweetness. The full, creamy body rounds out everything very nicely. One of the better brown ales I’ve had in a while. The quality combined with the 16oz can format made it a great one to enjoy with my sandwich.

Roasty aroma of Hershey’s with almond. Dark reddish brown. Sweet toasty taste, bitter chocolate aftertaste. Thin yet sticky body. About average for a brown ale.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from can. Nice deep red bordering on brown. Incredible smell of roasted, chocolate and caramel malts, like walking into a homebrew shop. Taste is bready and has a nice residual sweetness and is very well balanced, just the right bitter to match the sweet.
