COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An English-style strong ale. This brown ale has great malt depth and drinks like a session beer.

Great beer and best when consumed right in the bar at the Shed Brewery in Stowe, VT. Given the alcohol content, less than a few will do.

An excellent dark, full flavored beer. Nice hops but not bitter. Not malty.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2004 Medium/dark, murky brown with a very rocky head that does go quickly. Has a sort of graham cracker taste with toasted malts and a slight alcohol warming feel.

On tap at Coyote Cafe... Appears a dark brown with a 2 finger creamy white head and decent spotty lacing. Smell is sweet and of creamy caramel, toffee, and vanilla mixed with toasty malt. Taste is creamy smooth vanilla, caramel, and chocolate all swirled with a hoppiness that cuts in at the end. Mouthfeel is super smooth and creamy with a great overall feel. Nice sweet and hoppy finish.

nice deep brown hint of red appearance . I really enjoyed the maltiness of this; smoother, sweeter less roasted than other brown ales I've tried recently. I really enjoyed it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

definitive 5 in the palate it is creamy and foamy with small bubbles and a nice easy burn. good pudding like vanilla egg sweetness with a custard aroma i just liked the hell out of this brown ale. no gravy and a cheery light sweet finish.

Tap pour - @ JJ. Pours dark brown with thick, full tan-white head, ladtong and good retention. Plum, currants, and sweet malt grape on the nose. Tastes of maple, brown sugar, roasty malts, cocoa, and slight yeasty notes. Very good. Yum.

Caramel, earthy taste. Light to dark appearance. Let it breathe as full flavor grows stronger as it warms up in pint glass. Hardly taste alcohol except at finish

Bottle. Pours a muddy brown with small head. It has a nice malty aroma. The flavor is malty and slightly nutty. Very drinkable and good all around.
