dark brown poor with small beige head and decent lacing from a the 12 oz bottle, this brown ale is a solid offering with a nice roasted, nutty flavor but just a bit to much bitterness at the end keeps this from being exceptional. still, good beer

I like the looks of the body, a clear, deep reddish brown. Too bad the tan head’s so small. Not a bad aroma, lightly roasted malt, nuts, and dark caramel. Flavor’s okay, pretty much reflecting the nose with a touch of spiciness added. Sessionable, but so are a lot of brews.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very deep brown pour with 1-finger khaki head. Aroma is nuts, roasty grainy malt, brown sugar, toffee. Tastes brown sugary, not too sweet, with a liquid Wheaties flavor, prominent nuts, and a fairly rich palate. This is a very nice brown ale that I’d have no problem keeping year round in the DLBF.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Deep brown with a fading fizzy beige head and some lace. The aroma has notes of walnut, coffee, leather, herbal hop, light prune, and burnt toast. The flavor is rather straight forward with moderate toasted malt and nutty profile with some coffee and hop bitterness in the background. A hint of lacto sourness found towards the finish. The mouth feel starts lively but lacks refreshment, watery as well. A very average beer at best, seems to miss the point.

Pours a dark brown with a dark red hue. Very minimal head. Smell is very hidden with small aroma of root beer present. A right down the middle taste of malt mixed with some roast flavor. Nut taste stays into mouth long after gulp.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown color with a modest tan head. Big malt aromas. Scents of toasted bread and touch of roasted malt along with some herbal hops in the background. Mix of light fruit and toasted malt in the flavors. Apricots and raisins in a granola bar sort of way. Somewhat acidic in the finish and linger with some hints of black malt and grassy hops. More a winter ale than a brown, but as a brown it is one of the better ones.
