An autumn brown ale with distinctive toasty flavors from an assortment of roasted malts and grains. As a seasonal, limited release beer, its nutty characteristics offer a great companion to colder climate cuisine. A bright hop finish from Cascade and Fuggles balance the toasted grain notes to create a new expression of autumn brown ales. Brewed with Toasted Buckwheat, Maris Otter, Victory, Brown and Chocolate malts. Balanced with a bright hop finish from Fuggles and Cascade.

Pours a nice murky brown. Definitely smoky, but not offensively so. Not even a hint of the slightly higher ABV. Excellent.

16 oz. can thanks to Willrunforbeer for the share. Fresh canning date of: 8-26-16. Aroma shows roasted nuts, peanut shells, and deep grain. Appearance of a deep brown, with light white head lacing the glass.

Taste of roasted nuts, mild toast, cocoa, and some earthiness. Palate has a medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and toasty. Gosh damn, for a brown ale this is really a standout. Very finely constructed.

Bomber from Spirits Lakewood. Poured a super dark chocolate brown almost black with an average sized deep beige head. Aroma/flavor is cardboard, newspaper, light chocolate, dark fruit skin and wet nuts. Body is medium with lighter to average carbonation lingering aftertaste. Meh...

On tap. Felt like this drank more like a stout than a brown ale. Semi creamy texture. Slightly sweet flavor with a fairly pronounced roasted quality. Decent beer, but would not but again.

Purchased from Carriagetown earlier today. $8.00 for the 650 mL bottle. To red wine glass, it pours a mahogany-tinted reddish dark brown with which a trim beige ringed head 1 pinky nail in length stood. Aromas of autumnal leaves, chestnuts, flaked barley, biscuit malt, wet newspaper, bird feed, California yeast, pumpernickel, and American noble hops. Tastes the same with the addition of roasted bananas, minerals, and leather. I wish the nuttiness had been stronger, but overall this is a cunningly solid brown ale. Damn, New England has been killing it in the brown ale category in the last few years.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 8/3/14

Aroma: The nose is burnt malts mostly, some coffee, nuts, and some burnt toast
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a thin beige head and sheeting steaks of lace
Flavor: The flavor is dry and roasty, unsweetened coffee, and some burnt toast flavors
Palate: The body is medium, clean and smooth, with a dry, burnt kind of finish on the mouth
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid beer. I didn’t mind the burnt toast flavor that comes through on the finish, but it sort of flushes everything from the early part of the palate out, which does take away from the overall performance of the beer.
