Well, Iím pretty disappointed with this. Why canít organic beer be better? It looks great, with a medium, reddish brown body, and a full, lush, off-white head. Aroma-wise, thereís not much going on, just some mild malts and a gentle earthiness. The flavor isnít robus either. It lacks the roasty, nutty-sweetness that I expect from a decent brown ale.

12 oz bottle from Darkelf, thanks Stephen! Pours clear with a color somewhere between burnt caralmel and dark red mahogany, with a medium sized, creamy beige head. Aroma features dark roasty malts, bit of molasses and some floral hoppy notes. Nice roasty flavor with nutty notes, coffee cues and hoppy hints, fairly well balanced with an astringent finish. Light to medium body and tingly carbonation.

Draft at OíBrienís. Malty aromas. Medium brown pour with a decent head. Flavors were not as malty as I had expected. Some nutty chocolate, but also a bit of metallic finish. Just OK

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 Re-rate, Tap @ Rustico in Rockland, Maine, didn’t think I had had it. This was much better on tap. Poured amber with an off white head. Nose was sweet and malty. Taste was sweet and malty with a nice maple syrup finish much better than I thought it would be. 12 oz bottle. Light brown pour with a 2 Finger tan head. The aroma is light/nothing. The taste is light with a bit of sweetness. Overall a big ehhh.

cheap (3939) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Is this stuff brand new? Only 15 ratings? Slightly darker than your average beer. Brownish and clear. Interesting label. Has a creamy white thin head. Smell is OK, perhaps a little chocolaty Not really too nutty, more of a bitter development. Not as good as East End Fat Gary Nut Brown Ale, but better than DFH Brown ale. Not bad overall just wish it was a little more behaved. Does have a hoppy bitter finish that lingers for quite a while after the finish. Probably would not purchase again.

This beer was a little better than the one I had before it, and the mild sweet malts made a decent display. The nuts did come through and were more evident as the beer grew warmer.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2007 this is a favorite on tap at flatbread in portsmouth, nh. super smooth with a subtle toasty finish. hoppier than most classic brown ales. organic aspect a huge plus to this smooth brew.

Wow, this one is fantastic. The complexity of the body and the finish is spot on, without being overbearing. Extremely full of flavor without being too extreme. An strong example of the style.

I had a great experience with this beer on draft. Doesnít have a heady pour. Has distinctness in the taste. Chocolaty aroma that delivers in the taste without over-malting the flavor. Finishes with a solid and nice traditional nut brown flavoring. Could drink them all day - and look forward to doing so.

Pours without much head from the bottle. Aroma is like the Smutty Hanami, which isnít very good at all. Taste is all soap though, along with a nasty plastic. I cant take this anymore. Someone get me a decent beer.
