On tap @ the brewery. Pours very dark caramel brown with thin head. Aroma is big roasty nutty dark malt. Taste is thin dark roasted malt with a nutty dry caramel finish. Kinda meh, but this isn’t my favorite style so that’s probably not fair.

This is about as close to an English-style Brown as you can get without making a trip across the pond. Dark brown color; it takes on a reddish glow in direct light. Malty nose. Cocoa and hazelnut flavors followed by mild earthy, tea-like hops. Rich feel and low bitterness. Does AleSmith make any style of beer that isn’t worth drinking? Guess not.

12oz bottle dark brown pour with tan head aroma is brown sugar and roasted nuts taste is the same with some grass vbaudry (153) - - JUN 6, 2017
Brown amber robe without foam.
Nose of coffee, smoke and a bit of hazelnut.
Light body with thin sparkling bubbles.
Finish is soft and a bit nutty.
Quite balanced and enjoyable, maybe a bit too watery for me.
Way more refined than the Rogue one, but the nut is also more discreet.
