Dark brown color. It has a quite good aroma combination: balanced chocolate, hop, caramel. The flavor is too dry, with strong chocolate and strong bitterness. Too much roasted malts at the end. Not for me.

Growler filled at Consumers in Niagara Falls. Deep ruby brown with a beige head. The aroma is sweet and roasty, with chocolate, hazelnut and a hint of smoke. The flavor starts sweet and roasty, with a smoky side that gets stronger as the beer warms. Lighter notes of chocolate and hazelnuts. Very good. Really more like a lightly smoked porter than a brown ale, but if you want to call it a brown ale, it’s a damn good one.

kramer (4941) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear chestnut brown body with a small foamy beige head. The nose is really nutty, some hazelnut in here maybe? Rather sweet smelling with a little light-roast coffee. The flavor is sweet and a bit thin, but a little husky and grainy as well. A little light bitterness on the finish. Pretty nice amount of nuttiness coming through. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little sticky, with fine fizzy carbonation. Lingering sweetness on the finish. Pretty average for a brewpub Brown Ale.

On tap at the brew pub. Pours a deep brown with lots of ruby highlights. Medium size creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and almonds. Flavor was nice and roasty, chocolate, mixed nuts, molasses and a touch of hop bitterness.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2008
On tap at Wildflower Cafe. Coffee and roasted-burnt malt, caramel and molasses. Mild hop character, even a bit of smoke. Dark brown-black clear with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts with caramel, coffee, and chocolate. Mild bitter grain and some carbonic acidity in the finish. Nutty finish and after. A bit astringent, however.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark black pour with a tan head. Aroma is very roasty and slightly nutty with some sweet malts. Flavor is bitter and sweet at the beginning with a roasted malt middle and a bitter and burnt malt finish. Tastes more like a porter to me.
