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.

Draft pint at The Royale. Pours a clear, deep brown with an inch-thick, creamy, resilient beige head. The aroma is pretty light, with notes of nuts, tree bark, roasted caramel malts, and toast. The flavor really picks it up, with a big toasty taste, nuts, earthy hops, roasted caramel malts, and brown sugar. Toasty, malty mouthfeel, medium-bodied, and smooth carbonation. Smooth and sessionable, this one goes down so easily. Very nice brown ale, and sorely underrated.

Draft chips obx, dark copper color. Lots of nuttiness and some caramel aroma. Med sweetness, soft carbonation, med/lite body. Smooth easy drinking, but the flavor is there. Caramel, nuts, on the taste also. Like it. Finishes with a slight bitter.

Maybe it's just because I tweaked my back and this is acting as "medicine", but I think I like this more than any brown I've had in a long time. Great caramel flavor without being too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I’m not a huge fan of nut browns, but I liked this beer. The pour made me wonder whether I had opened a flat bottle. There was almost no carbonation bubbles but eventually a thin head formed. It even laced the glass along the way. It had little aroma, but what little there was was of malt. The taste impressed me. I enjoyed the roasted toastiness of the malt, balanced with enough subtle bitterness to forget the sweetness. I’ll have another, please!

Draught at Tyler’s in Durham, NC. Ruddy brown color with thin tan head that laced the glass. Malty brown sugar aroma with a touch of sprucy hops. Dry and earthy with subdued chocolate flavor and a mild roasty finish.

Dark brown color, with a fluffy beige head, leaving laces, toasty, caramel malt nose, with a buttery hazelnut, chestnut accent, with some toffee, cookie dough notes, hints of chocolate, dried fig in the aroma folows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet toasty, nutty character, with a cookie dough, toffee accent, with some hnits of coffee bean roastiness and dark chocolate, leading towards a malty, lingering roasted bitterness finish.

This simple brown ale was one of five different beers I tried while visiting Chicago on July 4 09. It was pretty basic. A bit of a let down.
