Offered from January 15-through May 1st. This ale has the perfect blend of caramel & chocolate malts, which creates a smooth, nutty palate with ample additions of Willamette hops for their spicy aromatics.

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2008
12oz Bottle: Pours brown w/ ruby highlights & a massive off-white head which leaves a delicate weave of lacing behind. Aroma is of spices, roasted malts & a nice warm nuttiness. Flavor mirrors the aroma. Nice smooth brew, easy to drink.

Thanks to douglas88 for sending this bottle along. Pours clear brown with a little red tint. Caramel and candy sugar aroma. Crisp, clean taste with some sugary sweetness in there. A decent brown ale.

douglas88 (7351) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours a light brown with a nice light beige head. The aroma is really light; some spices, nutmeg and gingerbread cookies. The taste is simple and smooth; some spices, nuts, caramel and a dry finish. Decent. Of course the ABV is low, and needs more fullness. But drinkable.

DoubleBubble (107) - Mescal Lakes (wherever that is), Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Pours a deep brown, with a decent tan head that disappears very quickly. Nice lacing. Aromas of nutty carmel malts. Flavor is not as nutty, or carmel tasting as the smell. Dry roasty aftertaste. Light body beer.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Pours dark brown with hues of burgundy. A modest head dissappears fast leaving only a faint trace of lace. Faint aromas of roasted cocoa. Medium nectar with ample residual effers creating a cottony soft texture. First notice is a moderate roast component and flavors of dark chocolate, coffee bean. Good balance and mildly hopped. The finish is bittered nicely and has a defined nutty twitch. A good brew.

Draft jar, MacCools. Nice creamy head on hershey bar brown ale. Light hop aroma. Smoky, dry flavor and finish. Pretty good, maybe needs more body.
