12 ounce bottle pours a coca-cola brown color, light aroma of chocolate, nuts, sweet malt, and some caramel. Flavors are the same, rather dialed down on booziness for over 7% abv, decent brown ale and would drink agaim.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slight caramel, chocolate, and nuts in the aroma that rises off the small tan head that rests atop a dark brown ale. The taste is sweet followed by an earthy bitterness, very well balanced. An enjoyable brown ale, but not really worthy of four-pack treatment.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Poured dark brown with tan colored carbonated head lots of bubbles. Aroma I get a mild roasted malt scent along with some bitter either from coffee or chocolate. The flavor is of a deeper richer roasted malt. There is bitterness about half way thru the mouth feel. This is a medium tonight bodied beer. For brown ale not to bad.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From Growler. Pours, well, brown. Relatively little head. Faint nose of coffee and malt. Roasted flavors blend with bitter hops and warm malt. Decent amount of carbonation with a lingering warmth and bitterness. Very respectable beer from a young brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Small tan head that was mostly lasting, no visible carbonation, fair amount of lacing, and a brown hue. The aroma was malty, nutty and earthy hops. Ditto for the flavor. The mouthfeel was tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, the hops were more upfront than the malts considering this is a Brown Ale which caught me off guard. That being said, I truly enjoyed drinking this beer as it is definitely worthy of a try and one I would drink again.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sample at GTMW. Brown like a stout with a great nutty, roasty aroma and a little hoppiness. Very smooth, drinkable brew. 7% ABV but wasn’t readily apparent.......a good thing!!! It was a hot day in Madison last Saturday, and I can’t wait to try this brew during football season. Great stuff from Peoples Brewing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft fest sample. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate sweet nutty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a smooth sweet finish that lasted. This beer would go well with a good cigar.
