Pours dark brown with white head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate and some roast. Taste is sweet with faint bitterness on the finish. Surprisingly crisp finish for the style.

1/15/12. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazy brown pour with a small khaki head that’s gone fast. Slightly sour nutty aroma with caramel and oxidation. Sweet, nutty flavor with a bit of roast and a touch of sour milk. Meh.

On draft at the brewery. A little thin for a brown but smooth nonetheless. Hints of nuts and grain.

AirForceHops (3295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 28, 2011
12 oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers. Used a pint. Head dissipated fast. No lace. Flavor is a blend of malt, sugar and very light fruit hop notes. Finish is a weak nuttiness, just a touch of bitterness. Overall very “Run of the Mill”

Nice brown beer. Not much scent, has a nice brown pour, creamy nuttiness. Not especially unique, but a good brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a copper/toffee color with a small white head. Nose is brown sugar, caramel, nuts. Palate is playfully carbonated with a light dirty feeling. Bits of toffee and peanut brittle in the finish with other notes of caramel, light spicy hop notes, sweet syrupy malt notes.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 Bottle on the lake in nh. Aroma is unbelievably sweet smelling caramel, brown sugar. Almost afraid to taste. Brown sugar, caramel, toffee. Thin. Way too sweet for me. Weak finish.

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle. Poured a hazy medium brown with an average sized light tan frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was of toasted caramel malts, resin hops and a mild earthy yeast with a mild hint of coffee. It tasted kind of mild with a sweet coffee flavor at first the became a little bitter and slightly hoppy at the end. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery in texture with a very soft carbonation. Overall a somewhat tasty brew but lacking for the style. Not sure if being an organic brew had anything to do with the lack of flavor but I am sure it did not help.
