the aroma is solid with caramel, hints of vanilla and a richness. the flavor doesnít match the nose a mild caramel flavor and light hops. though very little and itís very mild. the finish is way to hoppy for a brown and leaves a odd sweetness not very nice

Pours brown w/ a tiny head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is sweet malt. The taste is oddly sweet but lacking in traditional chocolate & hop flavors. Kind of a weird brown & not in a good way!

Right on...Iím digging what Wolaverís is throwing down. This is on the sweet side, and I like it. Delivers on its billing and there is not much to add. 12oz bottle.

"creamy and luscious it is not (as the brewer states). itís an ok beer that has all the aroma and flavor expected of your average brown ale. just nothing special."

60minuteman (867) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Appearance is more amber like a dark IPA than a brown. Aroma is malt, oak, nut, wheat. Taste is the same. Dank oak and nut. Bitter on the end.

Eructoblaster (3121) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle - 341ml. Nice amber body with a thin, off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and honeyish hints. Its decent malty/hoppy taste carries woody notes. Ends with a good bittersweet finish.

Bottle at home from early backlog notes 07. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malt, nuts, light toast with mild earthy bitterness. The aroma was fairly light even with warming. Nothing more than a basic brown.

Amber and hazy appearance with some foam that disappeared quickly. Mild amount of lacing. Very hoppy smell. Bitter and hoppy taste with some caramel undertones. I wasnít getting much vanilla. Not much aftertaste. Mouthfeel is smooth and thin. Not too much carbonation. Overall a decent beer.

Drought. Dark amber with very small foamy beige head, doughy aroma, low carbonation, slightly bittewr taste. Medium finish with a little bitter aftertaste. Not very remarkable.

Bulk_Carrier (2277) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a copper/red, slightly brown colored body and leaves a nice off-white two finger foamy head that lasts for a good two minutes. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. Some minimal spotty lacing is seen here and there. The smell has some grainy nuttiness backed up with some slight malty breadiness. The taste has pretty much the same smells in the flavoring. The palate sits about a medium with some slight harshness on the tongue. The aftetaste is dry. I would say this is fairly drinkable. Overall, as much as I like browns, this one hmmm. . . I kinda donít think Iíd come back to. Why? Well, probably because there are too many other browns that I enjoy more. Its just another average brown.
