Cheers to the man that created this beer! Tasty’s a real chill dude and great homebrewer. I had this on tap at Russian River. It pours a brownish red color with a khaki head. The aroma has bright red fruit, light toasted malts, a little cocoa and piney florals. The flavor is really nice with toasted malt as the base with plum, grapes, floral, spicy and lightly piney hops working off of that. The finish is floral with some dark chocolate bitterness and some more pine. Very dry. Great beer.

On tap @ RR! Not a fan of the style traditionally but this one was pretty damn impressive. Mahogany pour with chestnut edges and a foamy latte head. Cashew, macadamia nuts, roasted coffee, touch of citrus, caramel, and toffee. Fairly complex and definitely delicious!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ O’Brien’s: Poured a medium brown liquid with a slight tint of mahogany while almost no formation of head was on top. Aroma was surprisingly hoppy but I am unable to smell much else because of all the aroma of food and smoke in the atmosphere. As for the drink, a bitter bite of hops dominates the flavor while only a delicate touch of malts holds this brown ale together. Finish is grapefruit juice or lemon zest but could have easily fooled me for being some other style other than brown ale.
