A very enjoyable brew from the Troeg brothers. Very nice head. Kind of an odd aftertaste though.

It pours dark brown with plenty of lacing and an off white head. It has a strong aroma of nuts. There are flavors of nuts, roasted malts, and floral hops. It is moderately bitter with a good deal of carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is toasted malt and nuts. Medium mouth feel with sweet malts, cocoa, toast, sweet finish, very good.

Dark cola brown body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Nuts, bittersweet chocolate, toffee, cracker, toast, and earth and floral hop notes. Medium bodied, a tad overcarbonated, lingering finish, slightly thin toward the finish.

Growler brought home from brewery. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a nice looking dark brown color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. Slim stringy lacing roams around the glass. The smell had a sweet to nutty and slight caramel malt roaming around decently. The taste was exceptionally sweet through the nutty/caramel maltiness. A super sticky caramel balanced aftertaste leads to the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. A nice sweet sticky carbonation rolls over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good English Brown ale that I would have again.

A very dark brown. Off white head. Very little scent. Some brown sugar. A little citrus (orange) but mostly just bitter. Nuttiness develops slightly as it warms but really not much flavor complexity. Just ok.

Draft at Good Dog. Slightly hazy orange brown pour. What head there was disappeared too quickly to register. Lots of nice nutty roasty malts. Nutellla. Chocolate toffee. Medium-dark roasted peanuts. Cola. Liquorice. Medium body. Slight spicy hop bite comes out in the finish.
