Part of a flight at the brewery - whiskey brown color. The aroma reminded me of Brach’s candy as it is very sweet. Malty sweet taste as well. A little like brown sugar. If I weren’t such a huge fan of the IPA I’d probably have a full glass of this one.

On tap at the brewery. Clear brown pour with a white head. Great nose with nutty/earthy bouquet. The taste follows suit. Good light toasted malt notes. Excellent mouthfeel. Very good body. This IS what a brown ale should be.....

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2016 On tap at Pour 24 up the escalator from the casino in New York, New York, Las Vegas. Showed a clear & bright, walnut tone, with thick, persistent head froth, and spots & spiraling rings of lacing. The nose was toasted, smooth malt, light grain, nutty, light caramel, with a touch of toffee & chocolate. The taste was similar notes, but more roasted, with some nice creaminess to the mouthfeel. Light+ bodied, with decent carbonation, maybe a bit watery, and washed out texture-wise, and lightly dry with a hint of sulfur on the finish. Not a bad Brown, though.
Next Vegas trip, enjoyed a bomber with my meal at Prime Burger in the Venetian, self poured to a mug. Similar scenario, but the body & texture were fuller, with a somewhat pronounced, roasted & earthy bitterness, and pleasantly dry finish, with no sulfur this time. Matured into a heartier Brown, and paired extremely well with the petite filet special. +.3
