Another one from Eric. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a dark amber to slightly brown color with a one finger to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. The lacing was there and slightly all over the place, yes, no spiderweb and no speckling. The smell had a decent rich creamy nutty malty to roasty to gentle milk chocolate and light coffee running all about under my nose. If anything, it really picked off my nose like a pack of wolves just throwing one smell in and out fairly quickly. The taste was rich and chocolately sweet, light dried dark chocolate malt to balance. On the palate, this one sat right at a medium in body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me - subdued but not overly bearing. Overall, super nice Brown Ale that if it was in my distro, I’d be getting this on a regular basis. This one makes me somewhat jealous of not living in Michigan anymore.

Pours mahogany with a thin tan head. Nose is malty. Very rich and creamy on the palate. Taste is full of dark roasted malt, some coffee notes, slightly bitter on the finish. A very tasty beer that pairs well with ribs off the grill.

On tap at O’riley & Conways, pours a clear dark brown with an off whie head, the aroma was pretty sweet with a good kick of chocolate and a hint of coffee even, the flavor has quite a bit of chocolate at first with a finish of coffee and burnt malt, hmmm, interesting, really not bad at all.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottled. Poured deep brown with a short-lived dark beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, smoky brown malts, chocolate, and a bit of cheese, with lesser accents of rye and a touch of wood. The flavor found sweet cocoa, vanilla, and raisiny notes at the core, with peppery notes and more spice on the finish.. just OK. Light-medium bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. decent feel and flow.. drinkable, but not great.

Bottle. Brown pour with light tan head. Smells of caramel, toasted malts and slightly nutty. Tastes a little sweet on the front with a very slight bitter finish. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle, fresh and new on the shelves. Amber-brown body. Thin, glass rimming head. Brown chocolate, coffee in the aroma. Medium bodied despite the relatively big ABV. Quite well balanced and drinkable. Smooth caramel, toffee, brown chocolate flavors. Nails it for the style.
