On tap Sonkís Irish pub in Terre Haute, Indiana. Nice head as always with Sierra Nevada. Nicely balanced hops, quality mouth feel and nice lacing in the glass.

Fairly bright brown. Not a ton of nose. Sharp initial bite, not particularly balanced but okay. Wish it had more flavor. Decent smooth mouthfeel, not enough malts for my taste buds. Very dry. This one is fine, but definitely not an all-time favorite from Sierra Nevada. Cool label, great Autumn vibe.

Medium brown color with a fizzy head. Heavy on the malts with a dry hop finish. All in all a decent medium bodied beer good for drinking without feeling too heavy in the belly.

Nice brown beer with lasting beige head. Aroma is malty and taste is malt with a bit of caramel and a note of smoke. Nice balanced bitterness. Ok and quite drinkable

Meh...as they say. Almost new castle like. Vinious lean..it just does not groove with me. I should stick with browns from the other side of the pond

A great American brown. Caramel/chocolate malt character starts this taste but the best part is the roasted/dry finish. Hops bring this ale into balance and give it a slight earthy kiss. Medium in body, but drinkable.

Darker with a nutty flavor. Bit of a bitter after taste. Heavier feel.

Classic brown ale. Sweet chocolate caramel and roasted nuts. Very nice balance between malts and hops. Slightly bitter finish. Very very nice seasonal to look forward to each year.

I would recommend letting this beer sit in your fridge for a month or so before breaking into it. Iím not sure whether I got an odd six pack, but I can definitely say that my second impression vastly differed from the first. Like other Sierra Nevada products, this brown ale is very earthy and well rounded. In trying to describe the flavor, I find myself wanting to say that it is a good partner to cavendish pipe tobacco, if that tells you anything. Itís also pretty heavy, good for keeping you warm in those autumn months.

Bottle. Great dark brown color. Tastes of carmel malt and a fair amount of hops. Great showing of a brown ale.
