Another great nut brown ale. Really easy to drink. Nice nutty and malty start. Pours reddish brown in color with a tan head. Smells nutty. Had at grafton. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of caramel, cocoa and light nbuttiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, caramel and a hint of nuttiness with a smooth finish.

ARH (1124) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2015
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. A roasted nut aroma is initially noted with some grains and earthiness late. Its a dark, but clear, mahogany color with a tan-yellow soapy head that retains a moderate ring and leaves a dusty lace. Its balanced between moderate bitter and sweet. The smooth beer has a light and fuzzy carbonation. The medium body is roasty and nutty with some grains and earthiness and a syrupy, and creamy, caramel finish. Its surprisingly clean with just a hint of caramel.

Brown pour from 12oz bottle. Carmel and roast aroma. Nutty and earthy taste with a malty ending. A very nice brown.

monkeychugg55 (1075) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Brown with a small beige head. The aroma is a mix of toffee, caramel, and some nutty malt. The flavor adds a bit of esters, and has a nice toasted brown malt character. Reminds of a lighter version of a brown porter. Finishes a tad sweet, and is quite easy drinking.

Roasted caramel malt has a strong vegetable edge and fecal aftertaste. Not recommended.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2016 Darker Amber and brown in color, milk chocolate notes, light hops, minor carbonation, good hop backbone. The finish is minor bitters and minor milk chocolate. Overall a good brown ale with a good balance of hops

Not much aroma. Chocolate caramel flavor. Slight nuttiness. Smoother than most brown ales.

"Super nice for the style. Chocolate malt, caramel, slight nuttiness in the nose. Barely there hops with smooth chocolate and roast in the flavor. Better than most browns. Thanks Travis. "
