tmoreau (3133) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2014
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, showing a hazed, amber brown color, with a tan, froth & bubbles head, and good cling to the patchy lacing. The aroma was an expressive nose of toasted, near roasted nature, nuts, cocoa, toffee, and caramel. The aroma notes only mildly transferred to the taste, as it was dominated by a potent, dry, woody, & earthy hop bitterness, with a medium body, decent carbonation, and fair malt backing. The dryness & bitterness took away some of the sessionability as they finished strong into the finish. A hop centric, hearty Brown.

Pours a thick red amber with an annoyingly large head, half bottle into a pint glass. Aroma is of roasted chestnut and malt. Spicy hops flavor on woodsy malt. Caramel finish with a slightly sticky mouth feel. Caramel malt aftertaste.

Brown color from the bottle. Aroma is nutty malts and toffee and some earthy slight hops. The flavor is nutty malts, caramel, some dank hops with Slightly bitter and dry finish that gets sweeter as you drink it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 on tap @ Drake’s / Florence KY Clear mahogany with a thin head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is malt with brown sugar and hazelnut. Moves through the palate without incident before allowing a touch of bittering in the finish. Fair, but not one of Upland’s best. Re-rating to add place.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Draft served in a pint glass at Olives. Pours a clear reddish-amber-brown with a small beige head. Not much to the aroma or flavor; some toasted and caramel malts, dry leaves, grass, a bit of fruit, and the nuts are really light and in the background. Not a nut/toast-forward brown ale at all. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation a and a thin, smooth, earthy mouthfeel. Drinks easy. Underwhelming.

Chudwick (2528) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft - pours deep amber with tan head and exceptional lacing. Nose is nutty. Sip adds toast. Creamy like a Newcastle. A tad bitter. Light to medium body.

DrSilverworm (9083) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Pint on tap at Lackman. Clear red brown color. Thin khaki head. Good ridges and ropes of lace. Pretty sweet taste, a bit intense and slightly cloying in the finish. Medium body. Smooth, sort of crisp / lightly soft tingly stronger carbonation. Lightly slick in the finish. Kind of nutty, caramel malt, spicy malt. Hint of chocolate. Disappointing brown ale, not really anything going for it. Too sweet, and texture is a bit sharp. Close to a macro brown. Almost a tart bite to it, even. Maybe this is an old keg? The more I sipped, the more I lowered the score
