3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep mahogany. Nutty roasted malts, light coffee, a bit matalic. Medium to full mouthfeel. Slightly nutty with mild hop bitterness and a pleasant finish. Easy to drink and well made if unremarkable.

Could use more aromatics but has viscous mouthfeel, toffee, caramel, coffee, and all around good matliness. A little sugary? I enjoyed this beer.

A nice brown ale. Pours a medium brown color. Aromas of malt and nut. Flavor of caramel nut and coffee. Can taste the hops a but more in this one that other browns that I had had before. But in a good way. A solid brown ale.

Not terrible buy not much to it. Very bland for a brown or for a fall seasonal. Watery with a little toffee, not much roastiness. Drinkable though. The high rating for this is baffling. This is one of the blandest browns and blandest sierra nevada brews.

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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Pours a nice brown color and leaves a nice tan head. Has a good roasted malt flavor that leaves a slight bitterness on your palate. As of this point, my favorite Sierra Nevada. Overall, a very decent brown ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear dark iced coffee brown with golden highlights and a modest but persistent off-white head. Aromas of coffee, grains, brown sugar, and candied orange peel. Grainy sweet base with notes of chocolate, coffee, and orange; very slightly bitter herbal finish. Light body, creamy texture, soft to average carbonation. Pleasant, quaffable, and toasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
24oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint glass. Bottled on July 8th. Pours a deep brown. Not opaque. Exhibits good carbonation. Two inches of lumpy head forms and quickly dissipates. Fair amount of lacing. Nutty, roasted malt on the nose with a touch of coffee and dark chocolate notes. Medium bodied and just enough carbonation to make the mouthfeel nice and easy. Definitely sessionable. Sweeter on the palate. The roasted, nutty flavors come across after those of semisweet chocolate. This is the best brown ale I have had in a long time.

Poured from bottle, drank from pint glass. Full bodied amber that is rather inoffensive. Not bad.
