Dark chestnut brown hue, with a slim, but resilient browned silken head. A pretty balanced, nutty brown ale that is more British than American as the malt profile is the centerpiece, with muted hops just providing the support. Nice hazelnut and easy roasted aroma that follows through similarly on the palate. Just a good solid, nutty brown ale.

On draft. A mid-range brown ale. Decent, but lacking any distinguishing qualities. Underwhelming.

Bottle:   Deep brown, thin to moderate off-white head, little lacing.   Cocoa start, sweetened coffee, lots of creamer, seems a bit dry.   Maltly start, cocoa, sweet roasted malts, lots of sugar and cream in this one.   Not a hoppy example, but not overly malty either.   Decent balance, smooth, sweet, not overly roasted either.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with lots of cocoa, a bit nutty too.   Enjoyable!

Bottle... Poured deep brown with a moderate khaki head. Typical of style. Not bitter or crazy but just a nice nutty, toasted malt presence with a standard yeast presence for the style. Earthy, mildly dry, not too much for hops going on.

Medium brown color. Very malty nose with some nice nuttiness and chocolately character. The mouth is very malty, slighly tart with a lingering nuttty finish. Nice stuff.

Tap. Malty nose, chocolate, caramel, some crackers, grassy hops. Earthy grassy hop flavor with the nutty, chocolate malt. Ok.

Bomber from LetsPour.com. Pours dark brown with a slight creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate over some moderately roasted malt. Med body. Flavor is nutty and chocolaty with that standard "brown" malt flavor. It finishes dry and rather bitter.
