COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark brown color, with a balanced aroma of roasted malts and Northwest-grown hops. The sweetness of the ale, crystal, and chocolate malts blend beautifully with the assertive flavors of Cascade and Mt. Hood hops.

maxwelldeux (4035) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a smallish off white head. Nose has some nice toast and caramel in there, and is rather inviting. Taste is nice and toasty with just a bit of sweetness and bitterness. Really pleasant.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2014
translucent chestnut, cream ring. Stale grain and marshmallow sugar nose, burnt roast acidity blurring details. Flavor is equally flat, front showing brown sugar and grain before caramel mid, sweet and lightly syrupy through the light plastic end, faintly burnt.

maekchu (2509) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2014
Draught at the Tap Room in Tillamook. Gentle roast malt nose with yeast. Glowing reddish/brown, tan head, good lace. Very good roast malt initial / goes creamy and then suddenly the malt erupts / grass, mild chocolate, and cookies in finish. Medium body. Very smooth and flavorful. This is a very good one, in what is usually a fairly boring style. The best of the seven brews -- except for the Tsunami Stout -- I tried at Pelican.

Brentv (450) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pint pour on draught. Dark brown with orange highlights and off-white head. Roasted malt aroma. Flavor of roasted malts, medium bitterness, and ricg underlying sweetness as the glass warms. Very nice. Definitely worth drinking again.

mrhoppy (1289) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Medium brown. Rich and smooth texture; mild carbonation; really nice mouthfeel. Chewy-sweet malts with a lot of toast & roast. Mild coffee and dark chocolate. Complementing bitterness plus some background hop aromas. Nice flavors of toast linger. Enjoyable beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear, rubied brown with a lacy off-white head. Caramel-laden floral nose. Caramel and some chocolate with a dry and lightly bitter finish.

Doaner88 (9) - - NOV 16, 2013 does not count
Aroma was great. Didn't have the lingering sweetness usually expected in a Brown. Just fell short in the finish, being thin and lacking character.

MrFecesious (1156) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Shared bottle. Amber with quickly diminishing cap. Aroma of nuts, dark straw malt. Taste is soft sour dark malt. Roasty. Thins out dramatically. Too bad.
