It pours a cloudy dark brown with a good one inch foamy lumpy tan head. Foamy lacing is left around the sides of my nonic. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell has the toasted oats and walnut up front with an ever so faint sense of hops in the background. The taste has the previously stated elements and combines some nice caramel tones. The palate is about a medium, slightly dry and a bit watery, but a decent watery. Overall, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning when I saw the price, but am glad I bought it to try a style Im used to and like from a company Ive never had any of their stuff. Id probably have this again, but definitely as a novelty because of the price.

Very faint scent. Let it warm 10 degrees and still faint. Vague cocoa, chestnuts. Smooth, kind of plain brown ale taste. Lightly spicy. A small soapy/malty finish. Very sessionable, but on the uninteresting side.

Can courtesy of AirForceHops. Nutty, chocolate malt, and very light roast coffee aroma. Clear chestnut with a medium creamy off-white head. Light chocolate, toasted nuts, and light coffee flavor. Medium body, moderate carbonation. This is an excellent brown ale, and very easy drinking.

Pours a clear dark reddish brown with little head. Smells nutty with a malt and a bit of smoke. Taste is nutty with a nice mild malty flavor. A solid brown ale.

On tap at Eagle Mountain House in Jackson, NH. Clear, warm rich brown with small khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, nuts and toffee. Taste of roasted malt, toast, coffee, nuts, light hops and caramel. Mouthfeel and medium/high carbonation. Nice mouthfeel. This is a quite decent brown ale. It does not suffer from being too thin or having an excess of on flavor. I had this beer 4 years ago and it was not nearly as good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear amber with a huge tan head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma is nutty with touches of caramel and chocolate. Flavor is earthy/nutty with dry leaves and earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light...a little thin...with a bold roasty/earthy finish.

Can thanks to my buddy Chadwell! Light brown pour, minimal carbonation and a nice toasty nut aroma. Flavor is light chocolate, biscuit, lightly roasted nuts and finished a little malts. Not a huge fan of brown ales, but this works!

A very fine brown ale with rich nutty tones and a really good sweet maltiness. Faint malted milk notes. Pours medium brown with a frothy head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler. Pours a clear deep amber color with a thick head. Aroma is of chocolate malts, a little roastiness, oatmeal, and molasses. Flavor is of roasted chocolate, malts, grain, and a little coffee. Leaves a roasted chocolate malt finish. Not too bad.
