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.

maekchu (2123) - 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 (352) - 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 (1285) - 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.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
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.

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 (959) - 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.

GT2 (8416) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Tap at Pelican brewpub. Pours a clear, cola brown. Medium foam with webby lacing. Nose is strawberry, sweet, moves to richer hazelnut and mild coffee roast. Taste is roasty, nutty, muted hop balance, mild bitter soil and earth. Slicker, oily palate. Really fantastic for style. This brewery knows how to execute the beer styles that are frequently overlooked.

On tap at the brewery. Clear chestnut pour with a tan head. Solid roast aroma with caramel and biscuit flavors.

rbrazell (1646) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Deep amber brown pour with a small white head. Aroma is grape cough syrup and light toasted malts. Flavor presents itself much better with toffee, light powdery chocolate and earthiness. Medium bodied with touch of sweetness. Pass.

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Pours a translucent reddish brown from the bottle with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma is medicinal, kind of like a grape cough syrup with a toasted malt back. Taste is much better than the nose, like a lagered brown, with a bubbly sweet mouth. Meh.
