Sample @ PGH Beerfest. Pours brown with a thin head. Nice nutty and malty aroma. Taste is pretty enjoyable with roasted nut and malt flavors. OK but not the best one out there.

Small is nutty deep and robust. Hints of wood in there as well. Rich brown color. Nutty taste with nice malt profile finish. Taste could linger on tougue all day and wouldn’t complain. Has the potential to be one of the best brown ales. Nice brew.

Pours brown with a slightly reddish tint, with minimal, but lacy white head. Aromas are malty sweet caramel and mild nuttiness. Flavor is similar - sweet and bready qualities. Finish is clean and fairly dry. Pretty decent stuff.

Coffee notes dominate, some molasses and a bit of brown sugar as well. A bit of nuttiness. Kinda like a cross between a brown ale and a porter. Can’t decide if I like this one or not.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 12oz. Hazy copper body with a thin, off-white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with caramel and woody hints. Its relatively robust malty/hoppy taste carries woody, brown sugar, and some fruity notes. Ends with a moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Not bad.
