Tap. Pours a dark mahogany brown color with a tan head. Aroma is of toasted malts, nuts, bready notes and some darker fruit esters. Flavor follows the nose with lots of nutty notes and the toasted malt, dark breadiness and dark fruits. Body is medium with a silky mouth feel. Overall a pretty tasty Brown Ale.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours a clear, deep amber to brown with thicker lacing remaining from a small tan head. Taste is malt forward, very neutral, with no cloying character. Sharper, stinging carbonation. Nice malty raisin and black cherry feel. Not bad.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Draft at Haymarket’s PP night. Roasty but brown aroma. Dry and nice.  Light brown red. Sweet cocoa flavors with red fruits. Kind of an odd combo to put that much emphasis on fruits. 8/3/7/3/14

TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Pizza Port Event (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice darker brownish hue, near transparent but dark pour. A decent frothy tannish head dies to a film and laces small. Aromas are molasses and chestnuts, toffee, biscuits. Some cocoa dryness works in with a touch of dry hops. But this is a malt monster, complex toast and peanuts, cocoa. Initial is touches of molasses, brown malts, toast. Some caramel, toffee, and earthy dark fruit sweetness, a touch tart work in. Into some raisins, cocoa, some more molasses, with a nice toastiness. Touches of tobacco. This gives shades of Pullman Brown, meaning it pushes the edge towards a Brown Porter.. But gives a weird tartness. Solid beer, but not as good as Pullman. One of the better Browns I’ve had though. Really drinkable, toasty and sweet, earthy works well.
