Sweet and fruity aroma. Clear brown with off-white head that recedes to cover. Toffee, caramel, lightly buttery diacetyl, malty sweet with nice fruity esters and decent balancing bitterness. Lasting sweetness on the tongue in the aftertaste. On tap at the Vermont Brewers Festival.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2004
Fruity dark malt, butter-daubed, give off a pleasant nutty oil sweetness...A suave body in which hides a smoky earthiness and a few cherry bushes...Hop resin rises in the back but remain covered by the malt...A tasty quaffer but the many flavors don't come together to the forefront like I would like them to...

Draft. Maltier flavor, but somewhat balanced (if you like malt). It lacks complexity and finished a bit watery.

TogBean (47) - Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Out to dinner at Srange Brew in Manchester NH and decided to try a beer from that state. Not bad considering that i tend not to like bitter beers. It had great color with a small head, no lacing on the glass. Good balance of bitter hops and malt with subtle fruit undertones, and i liked the bite from the carbonation. Not one I would drink by itself but good with a meal.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2003
Roasted malt flavor, very nutty. The body was a bit thin and a fairly carbonated, bubby feeling on the tongue. Decent brown.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 5, 2003
Pretty decent brown ale. Pours an attractive deep brown, with only a light misting of head. Very clear. Aroma is slightly roasty, malty sweetness with just a little bit of hopping. Slightly nutty. Flavor is rich and clean, with a pretty agressive hop bite, particularly for the style. American tasting. Slight esters, nutty, woody flavors. Finish is quick and doesn't leave much behind. Medium to light bodied. Carbonation is medium, but I could stand it to be a little lower.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Has a dark brown color and a malted/nut smell. Taste is somewhat nutty and finishes pretty smooth. Overall this was a pretty good beer, but nothing exceptional. This has to be the best offering from this brewery so far.
