Wow, absolutely splendid. Most brown ales seem to be too hoppy or thin. This is not on either count. Strong malt flavors, which I like. Strong brown ale flavor, which I like even more. Amazed they packed this much flavor in this low of an ABV. Good, good, good!

Tap @ SE Tasting Room. Hazy red-brown pour with an off-white head leaving moderate lace. Sweet, dark-roasted malt with a medium, almond, biscuit body. Some brown sugar coffee in the middle, leading to a dry, burnt toast finish. Tasty, makes me want a PB&J!

Tap @ Parkway, SE and other places. Clear, deep red-brown pour with a creamy, tan head leaving heavy, coarse lace. Coffee nose is a bit of a turn-off for me, but most will like it. Medium-light body and carbonation. Bitter chocolate, toffee, burnt caramel, coffee and a touch of honey liven this one up without making it overly sweet and thereby not sessionable. Hops are peppery and pine and very much in the background as they should be for a brown ale. Quite tasty, have more than one!

Draft at celtic bayou. Pours a murky dark brown with a loose and lightly sudsy tan head. Lots of drippy lace. Nice caramel nose, a little molassesy, great power and balance to it. Super nice to see in a brown. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel and toasty brown bread on the mid palate with a nice earthy, slightly peaty finish. Best new brown in a while.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is a nice mix of nuttiness and toasting, and belies a very flavorful beer. Taste is a bit sweet, with some nice toasting and some subtle caramel and nutty notes. Really interesting.

Poured from a growler. Thin tan head with decent lacing. Sweet, but not too sweet. Very malty with good notes of chocolate. Body a little thin but overall a very solid brown.

Smells pretty good. Some light roast maltiness. This is also pretty good. The nuttiness/maltiness/hops are constantly fighting. The nuttiness wins out but it’s still good.
