On tap. Pours a medium brown, with little white head. Aroma is malts with caramel and roasted notes, slight hoppiness. Taste is caramel malts, slight roasiness with a solid hop presence bringing slight pine notes and a light bitterness. Palate is medium body, light carb. Good beer from a not very exciting style.

Malty chocolate aroma. Taste is very malty and slight chocolate but not sweet and well balanced. Get a slight floral hop aftertaste which prob helps balance the malt. Bitter finish. Overall a very good brown.

Shaker pint draft at The Red Onion in Aspen, Colorado. The pour is a hazed brown light copper with a one inch tan head. The aroma is nut, lightly roasted malt and a soft sweetness caramel. The taste is a clean balance of the soft roast malt, hazelnut, and a touch of lingering sweetness from the caramel. The palate is light to medium bodied, active natural carbonation and the lightly sweet finish. Clean and easy drinking.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can - pour is dark ruby - thin, soapy lace - nose of hazelnut and toffee, but also some odd notes of earthy/soil and a sweet chocolate candy/tootsie roll quality - flavor is mildly sweet up front, followed by some dry roasted nut flavor, but it quickly becomes quite bitter/hoppy - I don’t inherently dislike hoppy browns, but the choice of hops here doesn’t really work - the citrus of the cascades in particular really clash with the malt profile - rough, difficult to enjoy.

Enjoying this one. Pours a very dark amber, brown. Solid tan head that disappears too quickly. Fairly well-roasted malts, some toffee for sure on the nose. Also some light bitter chocolate. Flavors are similar with nice roastiness and medium sweet that is well-balanced with good bitter finish. Nice lingering flavors and aromas on this med-full bodied brown.
