Cask @ Brewpub: Nutty and smokey, nice malt and caramel; a bit dry but very full bodied. Dark brown color, no head or lacing. Malty flavor, clean finish. Very nice nut brown with a very malty finish and a light chocolate hint in the tail.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ the brewpub in SLC
Appearance: Dark brown with a tan head and some lace left in the glass.
Aroma: Roasted malt with citrus hops coming through
Taste: A very pleasant first sip. A well balanced beer with hops and malt about equal
I am not much for Brown Ales, but this is a really good beer. Maybe because it has more hops coming through than most brown ales I’ve had.

Draft Brewpub SLC-Pours a reddish brown with a nice off white head for a covering. Aroma of roasted malt and nut. Flavor was the same with a little hops thrown in. This medium bodied beer was a bit weak but still very tasty.

On tap at Squatters. Pours a dark brown with hints of amber, color with a thick beige head. The aroma is very hoppy, lots of sweet hop notes, some roasted nuts and malt and a bit of caramel. The taste was also quite nice, again the hops really stood out, some nice strong toasted malts and roasted nuts, also a hint of caramel. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured on nitro tap @ Squatter’s Brewpub in SLC. It has a clear copper to brown body and thin white foam head. Wow, it has an inviting rich roasty to nutty aroma that makes it hard not to take a quick swig. The taste is nutty and mildly roasty to start. It stays that way from front to back making me briefly re-think the quality of my taste buds. OK, I also get faint caramel and a brief hint of buttered bread. Very tasty Brown.
