Bottle from SB. Big tan head. Dark brown, almost red in color. Aroma of coffee, orange, nuts and leather. Well balanced and pleasant in the mouth.

Thanks Sierra. Pours a deep amber brown with a small thin head. Aroma is of caramel malts and some floral hops, which suprised me. Too often with these autumn brown ales there is no hop character whatsoever, this one has bite. The flavor is rich creamy caramel malts which flows into a plesent bitter, some cirtrus hop is there in the beginning as well.

Pours a dark brown, filtered. Small head is decent, excellent aroma of Nutty and warm roast malt. Donít get any chocolates here but fantastic nut roasted malt and a last minute hint of coffee finish. Not dry and not hoppy. Excellent amongst that which is called brown or nut brown. Well worth the 9 bucks a sixer. Pry off cap.

Appearance is a dark translucent brown. Head is off white, small. Good lacing. Smells of roasted coffee and malts. Tiny bit of brown sugar and earthiness. Taste is coffee, caramel, bread, malty and finishes with some crisp hops. Mouthfeel is smooth, yet gives some bite on the tongue. Overall this is one of my favorite autumn browns. It feels and looks like fall.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a creamy thick head. Smells hoppy with a touch of toasted caramel. Taste is also hoppy with the toasted caramel or even a slightly coffee flavor at the finish.

Nice beer. Canít go wrong with a Sierra Nevada, so glad itís reaching mainstream status. Nice brown color, decent head and aroma. Just enough bitterness and hops with 0 zero traces of sweetness. I canít think of anything better to say then: "This tastes like beer." And a good one, at that.

Pours light brown with a scant off white head. Nutty aroma. Smoky flavor with some light malt and floral hops. Unique brown. Pretty good.

This brown ale is perfect this time of year when the weather is just start to get cooler.
I love the color of this one but the nose didnít have much to offer. Light caramel sweet malt but not over the top and balanced well. The mouth feel with this one is great as its full bodied , not to viscous and represent the style well with its low to mid amount of carbonation.
An all around nice brown ale.

Something about this one just didnít quite do it for me. Not a horrible beer, but not good enough to hang with some of Sierra Nevadaís other more stellar brews. Pours a coppery brown with a minimal off-white head. Taste of earthy caramel combined with dry herbs...not very exciting when it hits the tongue. Eh.
