3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another several samples I was able to partake in while at the brewery.
In a sample glass, this showed a nice looking hazy brown color with a slight transparency about it.
The smell carried a decent nutty to caramel maltiness about it that carried over into the taste.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly good sessionability about it. I would say that this had a pretty good smooth almost creamy milkiness about it.
Overall, this was a pretty good brown ale that I would have again.

This isnít bad but itís weird to me that their amber has so much more malt character than their brown. In this case this may be the point, I guess. Caramel, grain, a bit of molasses and a hint of nut and spice (I believe thatís the recipe verbatim). Not much hop profile but a bit of ambiguous dryness on the finish. Drinkable

Pretty straight forward, very little hopping, nutty flavour and aroma. Loght bitterness, caramels and nuts in the finish with some faint bready malts. Run of the mill

Beige, patchy surface to a deep ,dark brown coloured body. Aroma of oak vanilla joined by brown malts, mild vapour of alcohol. Vanilla taste together with dried fruits and roasted malts towards the ending.

Fruity esters with hints of caramel malt. Not much hop nose . Caramel notes with a nutty earth-like essence that reminds me of the fall leaves in my car heater. Has doughy yeast and caramel/toffee notes. Pours a ruby/brown with a thin white head that laces and lasts. Carbonation medium. Overall impression.. An American brown with very little hop character to speak of . Has some earthy notes and some caramel sweetness . Not a real sox knocker

From bottle, poured a nice deep ruby with an off-white head. Aroma was caramel and nutty. Went down smooth and tasted awesome. Not hoppy, not sweet, with a nice roasty finish. One of the best, most approachable browns Iíve had.
