On tap at the brewpub. Nice and dark. Decent co2. Fairly mild and easy to take. Roasty wood mild flavor. Not bad, good beery experience.

tmongoose (1312) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Draft sampler poured a medium brown with off white head. Nice nut brown aroma with medium dark malts and a hop presence. Flavor was quite good nice nutty flavor with a hop crispness. Overall this one was one of the better ones.

ads135 (2966) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUN 1, 2014
This deserves a better rating than it has. Not traditional in that it has a lot more hops than usual, but it only adds to the appeal. Tried at the brewery in 2014.

DrSilverworm (6455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewery. Clear dark red color. Thin khaki head, leaves good thicker lace. Great chocolate, nutty aroma up front. Medium-plus body, big and full for the ABV. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice flavor again, like hazelnut or marzipan or something. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Tasty brown ale!

On tap at the Blue Moon Cafe in Shepherdstown, WV. Clear, dark mahogany with a thin khaki head and fair lacing. Aroma of nuts, caramel and leather with hints of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste of nuts , caramel, mild fudge, roastiness and a touch of toffee. Medium body and low/medium carbonization. Modestly sweet and very nutty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ContemplateBeer (1543) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Aroma of caramel, nuts, chocolate and light floral presence. Appearance is amber/brown with sticky tan head. Flavor matches the nose, except that the flavor seems to quickly move to the finish, which is dry. Palate is medium, tacky and very soft. Could have used a little more endurance in the flavor.

Growler from BBC: Pours syrupy brown with a nice head. Aroma is sour and leather as is the taste. Not very good at all..
