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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate and toffee malts plus some light floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average to smooth texture. Borders on a stout a little bit for a brown ale, but a good brown ale.

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.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose some some roasting to it with a slight malty sweetness coming through underneath. Taste is actually a little toasty with some elements of coffee to it. Definitely has a bit to it, but is fairly inviting. Interesting...

bottle @ Whitey’s / Lawrenceburg IN --- Opaque black/brown color, heavy beige head that sticks around, sheets of lace. Taste is toasted malt that adds fizz and dark chocolate on the swallow, then changes to bitter black coffee and light hazelnut in a lingering finish. How is this a brown ale? Regardless, a solid, complex, well-balanced brew.

tap at Indiana winterfest - Pours medium brown with a small tan head. There’s a caramel malt aroma. Flavor is the expected caramel malt with good roastiness and a robust taste that makes this medium bodied brown ale work well.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at People’s. Pours a coppery brown with a persistent off white head. The nose is caramelly, somewhat bland. Some English yeast notes. Faint cocoa? On tasting, moderately bitter with a caramelly quality. Also a bit winey. Some strange astringency distracts. An odd brown ale overall, really.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a very dark brown with a light brown head, spotty lacing, the chocolate is pretty pronounced on the nose, quite a bit of sweet caramel too, the flavor has a chocolate front end with a dry finish, honestly the abv was probably a little too high with this one, if it was turned down a few notches I think this thing would knock it out of the park, not bad by any means, just kind of missed the mark.
