A rich, dark Brown Ale, this malty delight is packed full of nutty and chocolaty notes.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was obviously a brown color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head that dissipated immediately. No lacing.
The aroma starts off with some sweet nutty/caramel malts. Light roast with some clean grassy hops.
The flavor takes in all of the previously mentioned aromas and builds to a sweet bready to grassy flavor. Lingering rolling toasty aftertaste. Sly roasty finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs light.
Overall, it’s a pretty good brown ale. Everything fits.
