Bottle. Pours like an American Brown should. Thick and woody. This drinks thick and outdoorsy, too. There’s an interesting tingling twist. More going on there than an in many American browns. (#5442, 2/17/2014)

12oz Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice thin lacy head. The main taste I sense is a sugar and light caramel note. Not that bad just a little sweeter than I had expected

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle shared by dudeabide- thanks, Nate! Pours a tea amber color with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted and caramel malts, mixed nuts, and dried leaves. The flavor is the same. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a smooth, earthy, sweet mouthfeel. Drinks more like a 5.5% brown ale than a 7.4% strong ale. Either way, not a lot to it.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into shaker. Pours almost bottle brown with a haze. Thin off white head with some laceing. Aroma is malt with a nutty flavor. Taste is malt, nut and plum. Light mouth feel. Was a bit light in taste for me but I think it gets stronger in the finish. I picked up a nutty taste turning coffee in the end. Not bad but wouldn’t be my a return pick up for me unless I used it as a better gereral brew for friends.
