COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Brown Ale has a touch of nuttiness provided by our good friends Mr. and Mrs. Victory and Munich Malt. The addition of Northern Brewer, Cascade, and Willamette hops smooth this beer out to create an incredibly drinkable Brown Ale.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Pours deep brown/red with thin tan head. Aroma is that of coffee and roasted nuts. Flavor contains malts, roasted nut, and a bit of a burnt coffee (black malt maybe?). There were no noticable hops. The burnt flavor lingers a little but not too long. A ho-hum brown ale.

OldGrowth (2917) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Pint @ Tylerís/Durham. Ok nose, lite nutty, cardboard, caramel. Clean orangy brown color, good head & lacing. Bitter flavor, sharp nutty/roastiness dominates, caramel/chocolate is secondary, but noticable. Medium body, lite creamy mouthfeel, bitterdry finish. Huh, a gold medal for this one? Donít see what sets this above other browns Iíve had. Oh well.

drywallman (344) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2006
I was swigging this one directly from the bottle while on vacation. It had a some slightly brwon ale characteristics with a maltier than average aspect. A little roast was thrown in also. You could easily drink a lot of this one.
