Included as part of a sampler at the restaurant. I found most of the beers here to be very well done. And the food was great too. Canít go wrong with anything at this place.

Nothin wrong with this one. A bit muted and boring. Taste is bready malty and medium sweet with a smooth crisp finish. Easy drinking and not a bad time.

Dare I say this is undercarbonated? Pours with no head. Sweet, heavy in body. Nice toasty malt flavor, but cant get over how sweet it is.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 22 oz bottle shared by AirForceHops. Deep brown like lacquered wood. Light lacing produced from a very thin layer of off white head. Aroma and taste are almost identical. Molasses, Malt and light nuttiness. Light in body with lots of favor. A very tasty and well done Brown Ale. I would drink this any day of the week.

Deep brown color almost like a Coca- cola. Small ring of off-white head. Light lace. Nose of molasses and malt. Taste is very similar to aroma. Very thin mouthfeel, light bodied, however there is no lack in flavor. Very easy to drink. Surprised its out in the summer, but not disappointed that it is. Very good! Would buy again!

Big, malty and roast aroma - pretty nice coming off the run of Nashoba brews that I just ingested. Very dark. Clean label. Sweet, raisiny, not very bitter, plummy. Sweet on the lips. Not terribly complex, but good. Thanks to LuckyDog.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Pours a fairly dark red-brown color with a half-finger of off-white head. The head faded fairly quickly to a ring leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is full of lightly-roasted carmel malts with some nuttiness. There is also some sweet brown sugar and some hop in the background.
T - Starts off pretty sweet. There is the carmel malts that hit right away, and also some additional background sweetness from the brown sugar and also some vanilla. There is additionally some deeper nutty elements. Through the middle a hit of brown sugar really comes out with some strong sweetness. The finish has a mix of the carmel malts, some sweetness, and some coffee flavor. A little bit too sweet overall.
M - Medium bodied with a moderate amount of assertive carbonation. Just a tad watery but still very creamy and very smooth. The finish feels a bit thicker, almost a tad syrupy.
D - Very drinkable. The sweetness can be a bit much after a while, but the taste overall is really nice. The finish is really nice. A bit more balance with the sweetness could help a lot.

Bottle in Northfield, MA. Medium brown body with oily head. Nose of malts and caramel. Taste of malts, quite oily texture. Slight bitterness in the finish. Quite good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap-pours a light brown head and dark brown color with red tint. Aroma is sweet dark malt-molasses/chocolate, dark fruit-raisin. Taste is sweet dark malt-molasses/chocolate, dark fruit-raisin/cherry with some tart. Dry over takes sweet by mid-palate. Taste not up to aroma for me. 3.2
