Dark in color, yet our lightest beer. Smooth with a slight roasty, chocolate flavor.

A mild, easy drinking "session" beer with a complex flavor. The chocolate and nutty character is flavorful yet not too heavy. There is very little hop bitterness and the finish is smooth and pleasant.

Draft in a flight at the brewery. Poured a dark brown with a small head. Very easy and tasty brew, with subtle hints of nuttiness over a warm and great brown ale. One of their better beers.

Reviewed from notes, tasted 12/22/2011 at the brewery - Pours a clear mahogany with a thin white head. taste is mildly bitter. Palate is a bit thin, but expected, considering the 3.8 ABV. Aroma is nutty with a touch of chocolate.

DiarmaidBHK (3724) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Draft at westville pub. Pours dark brown with a slight, slight hint of toffee and chocolate but you really have to focus really really hard. Slight hint of malt on the tongue. Clean finisher. Just because itís less than 4% ale means itís a session ale. It has to have big flavor as well which this is lacking.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Serving: Draft at the Thirsty Monk. It pours a deep brown color. The nose is light with a touch of caramel. The flavor is thin with vegetal, caramel, and light roasted notes. Lacks body and could use a little more flavor, even for a session brew at this strength. Dry on the back end.

CASK! Pours moderate brown with a thin tan head. Surprising carbonation for the cask. Malts and maple or honey? dominate with a nice hop finish. Nice brew. I will drink it again.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Draft at Brewgrass. Clear dark brown with an off-white head. Rich, nutty, sweet malt aroma. The flavor is sweet and nutty following the aroma closely. Decent Brown Ale.
