Very dark brown pour from TapHouse Grill in Seattle, this rather heavy, nutty brown ale starts well but finishes slightly less wonderfully than one expects but sitll a very good brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
beautiful dark brown with a haze and visible texture and a creamy barely tan head that clung to the glass. hazelnut aroma, rich and bold, a bit of leafy hop balance is present as well. sessionable in body and complexity, the nutty character is up front, not dominating, and washes away clean.
