12oz bottle courtesy of dmschefke. Pours a deep tobacco brown with very little head. Aroma of lightly roasted nut with a good backing of cola and maple. Also pick up some hints of clove-tobacco notes. Light body with tight carbonation. Medium to light roasted sweet maltiness with mild nut flavor going on with some hints of cola, maple and caramel. Nothing surprising or complex here, but a very nice and drinkable Brown ale.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with mibirder. Pours a clear dark brown that allows light pass through with a large tan head that lasted until mid-glass and left fairly good lace. Pleasant aroma of lightly roasted malt, caramel and apples. The flavor is lightly roasted malt, caramel, nuts and a bit of tobacco. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Nice problem-free brown ale.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle, with thanks to coyotehunter! Pours a clear cola brown with a minimal tan head. Aroma is fairly slight, but the usual suspects for a brown ale - caramel, nuts, toasted malts. Flavor is more nuts, caramel, and toasted bread and malts. Hard to impress with such a pedestrian style but not bad. Thanks again Matt!

12 oz bottle. Clear brown with a whitish cap. Nose is earthy chocolate caramel with a touch of smoke. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is mild molasses, club soda, black walnut and plum. Sessionable Brown but uninspired. I’ve been spoiled by the Imperial Series.

Served from a 12 oz bottle picked up an our trip through M!ch!g@n. Appearance is a deep cider red-brown with some small bubbles. The aromas are malty and some dry hard cheese? Flavors start with a a semi-sweet chocolate edge, rich malts, a bit of cardboard indicating this is past its prime a tad. There is some nice faint hop presence that has a pine edge. Mouth is very creamy. A decent brown.
