Draugh half-pint at the brewpub on 3/12/06 with Muzzlehatch
Clear mahogany-to-dark-oak brown with a medium-sized amount of sandy-beige head that recedes quickly to cover but is retained there, providing no lacing.
The nose is full of mild brown malts, evoking light oily wood, plenty of walnuts, pecans, mild chocolate and some mildly spicy hops. Mild seems to be the key here, but yet the more it warms, the spiciness seems to grow, outlasting any crusty or bready malts that might keep it down. A touch of vanilla or maple butter as well. Not fruity, surprisingly.
The flavor is dry and woody at first, with bits of caramelized pecans, soft vanilla sharpness and waning chocolatey, with very little sign of the hop spiciness seen in the nose. It creates a moderately sweet effect overall, which is fairly balanced with the dry, cola/rootbeer-like ending, but an oily-sticky texture and surprisingly low carbonation are at odds with the session quality of the beer.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Draught pint at the brewpub. Thinnish-looking maple color, little head and fairly clear....lots of herbal notes and some lovely nuts in the aroma, pecans and hickory nuts, bark and a touch of ash....tingly, oily-nutty character in the body, lightly peppery, touches of thyme and anise...the oily-sweet character dies quickly and the finish is intensely dry and rather bitter, unusual for a brown ale as is the noticeable alcoholic/fuesel notes...interesting, and maybel something I’ll give another shot, but pretty rough.
