A very different beer. Somewhat light and almost sweet. A nice change of pace, but overpriced.

EyeAmBaldman (222) - Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Pours an iced tea color with a thin white head. Aroma is a tad malty with a bit of coffee and smoke. Taste is a bit of roasted malt, smoke, and a hint of coffee bitterness. This is a decent brown ale.

GIJOE (621) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Pours brown with a thin off-white head. Very malty on the nose; a little yeasty at first, but that settled down. Taste is sweet, like a root beer. Slight hop presence, particularly in the finish. Medium body. Mild carbonation. A little plain, but quite drinkable.

The body has a dark brown look with a beautiful garnet hue. The pour produces a only a small on inch tall beige head which fades fast and leaves only a ring of foam on top of the beer. Lacing is minimal. In the nose I pick up nice bready and roasted barley notes. This has a mildly sweet character overall with no hops. On the tongue there is a pleasant sweetness and toasted character from the roasted malt and bready ale yeast. There are nice chocolaty and caramelized notes with suggestions of maple sugar dark brown sugar and just a light kiss of hop spice in the background. The finish is still on the sweet side but with hops coming out more in the late in the finish. Its palate has a full body with a smooth texture

fidemaster (281) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2014
It has a pleasant nutty aroma. Pours a deep brown color. It has a nice mix of nuts, caramel, malt, and a touch of hops. Its solid but not anything special.
