COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, malty profile is punctuated by hints of hop flavor and aroma; a complex, understated fruitiness makes the signature statement.

jnkor (316) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance is a dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma is immediately smoked malt, with a finish that implies nitro. Taste is again malty, but bitter and smoked. Borders stale but not completely. Palate is frothy and full.

On tap at Sea Dog brewery in South Portland, Maine. Nice heady mahogany pour. Sweet caramel malty and nutty aroma. Medium body. Malty yeasty flavor with a slight after bite.

bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Tap at the Orlando venue. Pours dark copper with a creamy beige head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity. Flavor is malty, but not nutty. It seems floral with some grass, and is decently bitter. Could be a short circuit in my brain, but it suggests Best Bitter.

Imaena (1817) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Draught. This is a decent little brown ale. By no means my favorite but not bad either.

jbruner (2280) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Pours a deep clear brown on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma is nice toasted nuts and barley, a hint of caramel. Taste follows with notes of chocolate, slight bitterness, sweet finish. Not too bad actually.

BreWedge (309) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
On tap @ Sea Dog Brewing, Bangor, ME. Pours a clear rusty brown/amber. Aromas very malt dominant with caramel, biscuit, and honey. Tastes are similar with a nice sweet biscuit and honey up front and a gentle bitterness on the finish. Medium body, light carbonation and medium bitter finish. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

BrettTaylor (472) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Poured as part of a taster flight at the Woburn brewpub. Nice amber color, light head, light lacing. Caramel and malt on the nose, caramel notes on the palate. Very nice and goes exceptionally well with the risotto arancini off the appetizer part fo the menu.

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Light caramel and brown sugar aromas. Lighter brown color that is almost see-through clear. Tastes fairly sweet, a bit more fruit and a bit less dark malt than expected. Medium weight body, really more of a dark amber beer than brown ale.

nick76 (4209) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2013
The color was amber and not dark enough for a brown with no head. The aroma was sweet and slightly toasted with brown sugar. The taste was simple and like the aroma with a tiny bit of hops. The palate is average. Overall drinkable but not a true brown.

Good draft ay sea dog. Great aroma of floral notes and caramel. Rich taste of nuts and toffee with a soft body.
