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.

Cavie (3748) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bottle from Central Market. This beer pours a clear brown color which is a dark brown with touches of red. The head is tan and foamy. 

Aroma is caramel sweetness with a nutty nose. Slight roast and bitter. A decent nose. 

Flavor is a dry nutty taste with a roasty finish. A bit too dry I would say.

RobertDale (3306) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Sample at KC Beerfest 10-22. Comes brown with an average biege head. Aroma of caramel, malt and toffee. Taste is sweet malt, caramel and just a bit of hops. Not too exciting.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of nut and dirty chocolate. Flavor is not so good in my opinion, several off flavors such as vegitable, bandaid, some nut, medicinal and a certain alcohol spice that just shouldn’t be there. Medium body and kinda watery with high carbonation....overall, taste like a poorly made homebrew. Extremely disappointed!

degbert (1061) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours red-brown with good clarity, but the head disappears faster than a politician’s sense of honor. Nose is dry and savory with tea and nut notes. Drinks dark for a nut brown, and there is an unpleasant stale coffee/burnt sugar element. One-dimensional. Ska continues to underwhelm me.

Mora2000 (5528) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2011
On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. The beer pours a brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is full of toffee and caramel with a little bit of nuttyness mixed in. Straight forward but enjoyable. The flavor is more of the same. There is a little bit of brown sugar to go along with the hazelnut, toffee and caramel notes. There is a little bit of grass from the hops but it is hidden well behind the malt. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown with stable head and some lacing. Very clean aroma, like a Rogue. A bit thin. But some nice malt sugars. A brown sugar flavor profile. Sessionable.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2011
Chestnut colour. The aroma is faint but nutty. Slightly sweet with a mellow nutty character. OK brown.

mhkmurals (12) - Kansas, USA - SEP 30, 2011
From bottle. Pours medium brown and slightly cloudy with thick creamy head. Smells earthy and malty. very slight hints of fruit also in the aroma. Taste is quite malty and slightly sweet. very smooth texture.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 23, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a brown color with a thick frothy off white head that slowly fades. The aroma is nutty, with caramel, some roasty malts and very light hops. The taste is of light coffee, nuts, a hint of caramel in the middle and roasted malts at the tale end. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth, but thin, with lighter carbonation and leaves a lightly bitter aftertaste.

onceblind (3934) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Clear medium brown with ruby highlights under a thin off tan head. Smelled of toast, light cocoa, some nuttiness, light grass hops, and a touch of wet wood. Body was a little on the medium side, but lingered a little while. Had a little dark fruit and a little hoppiness, but it mostly just had some malty toffee sweetness with some typical brown ale malts. Not shabby, just too common.
