COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slightly sweet, smoky, and full bodied. Chocolate, Roasted, and Dark Munich malts give this beer a nice mahogany color and rich flavor. This big brown ale will warm you up!

Dull muddy light brown. Light nutty nose with a touch of cocoa. Nutty, then sweet, with a long nutty finish.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a hazy brown color. Nose has some bread and caramel in there. Taste is slightly sweet and toasty, and drinks very smooth. This ends up being one of the better browns Ive had in a while.

fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Draught at the brewery, 7.2% ABV
Brown color with small head. Nice roasted malts and chocolate, both aroma and flavor; good body strength, moderate sweetness. Fairly bitter.
Very nice. A lot of character here, and the chocolate is very evident.

BrewDad (5004) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Brown in color, clear with a thin head. Light chocolate aroma and flavor. Balanced hops and tasty malt finish this was a very nice beer.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2012
On tap at Collins Pub in Seattle, WA. Pours a clear, deep brown colored body with a finger-width, dense, creamy and frothy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is really nice with a nutty and toasty, light caramel sweetness as well as some roasts, chocolate, touches of toffee-bread, and some earth. Flavor is similar. A lightly sweetened, nutty caramel and chocolate with a nice roast, toasted toffee bread, and earthy hopping. Finishes dry with a light-medium, earthy and roasty bitterness, but balanced with a nice nutty caramel. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, damn...Im a sucker for a really nice brown ale and this is definitely one of the better ones. Roasty and earthy with a nutty caramel and chocolate balance that is dry, smooth, and easy drinking. Great beer.

Taster @ North Sound Brewing. I must have really enjoyed this one! Notes: Smells like freshly roasted coffee. Adds a lot to the flavor.

Draft at hudson. Pours a murky brown with a dense and creamy tan head. Big roasty black bread nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty black bread semisweet chocolate and iced tea mid palate. Long earthy roast finish.

BillKismet (3342) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2011
An intriguing deep brown and blood red boy with a creamed, oatmeal stout-like topping. Pleasant, warming roast barley nose entwined with chipped nuts. Brown malt roasted flavor with a moderate nut accent, leaving an enduring peanut skin flavor in the back of the palate.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Nose is nutty and toasty with hints of roast, earthy hop bitterness and perhaps light hints of sweet smoke. Unique robust nose for a brown ale. Pours darker brown, nice lasting head, slight chill haze. THe flavor is big and robust, roasty, toasty, nutty, moderately assertive hop presence. Dry long finish, slightly warming. Really enjoyable stuff.
