A dark brown ale deriving maltiness from two types of American crystal malts, yet not overly heavy in body. Rounded with a nutty flavor from chocolate malt and a hint of black patent malt. Finished with aromatics from Czech Saaz hops.

Slightly hazy red brown color with thin white lacing. Roasted nutty aroma that almost jumps out of the glass. Smooth and creamy palate. There is also a little chocolate and roasted nuttiness on the palate. Overall a solid brown ale.

Draft. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium toasted sweet malt and hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Solid toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

Root beer brown body with a 1 inch foamy, browned head. Intriguingly nutty with puffs of cocoa, sasparilla, and maple syrup. Malty and chocolatey body with a perfectly-stated nutty refinement that furthers the complexity. The tastiest artisan stuff I’ve had on my trek through Arizona.

On draught at Nimbus. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma has cocoa, light coffee and some berry. Taste is sweet with some roast. Not bad.

Sampled at the brewpub. Opaque brown with a nice layer of foam. I smell nuts and get a whiff of chocolate. The first sip is nutty but slowly chocolate cake and saaz filters in. That repeats itself with each sip. The feel is a bit thin. This is a nice rendition of a brown. Tasty.

12oz bottle pours clear mahogany with copper – amber hues and lasting tan head. The aroma offers up ample amounts of toffee, roasted malts and earthiness mixing together very nicely. The taste begins with a brief straight up maltiness and is quickly joined by sweet toffee candy, some roasted malts, a pleasing dank earthiny maltiness and just a kiss of sweet dark fruity esters. Wow! This is scratching me right where I itch. Hits the spot for sure. Nice!

Dark brown but clear pour, good head, though it dissipated quickly. Nice bready and malty aroma. Smooth toasted malty flavor lingers on the tongue. There is a bit of complexity, but not a ton of it. My current favorite everyday drinking beer.
