Tap @ taphouse darlo. Pours amber brown with tight light tan head and same lace. Aromas of sweet toffee malts, a touch of citrus and pine to balance bit it's all about the toasty brown bits. Medium body, med carbonation, light finish giving way to a sweet light malty near cloying but pleasant finish.
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mellow roasted malts, mild tangy coffee, some vanilla. Taste is tangy, mild coffee, maybe some caramel. Most Brown ales are boring...but this one really came together nicely. Nothing too exciting but a quality Brown! luttonm (6963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2017
Cork and Tap, Bellevue. Creamy, soft head on a lovely dark brown body. Smooth and balanced roast nose. Full and inviting sip, a touch of metallic bittering but roast and molasses dominate. Very enjoyable. explosivedog (1827) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 8, 2017

This is a really delicious brown ale, one of my favorites of the style. Not nutty at all, this has a lot of molasses. Sticky, yet still not too sweet. Excellent beer.

You can definitely taste the brown sugar and molasses and that would be the bulk of the beer. I also get grape on the sides of the tongue. The body is surprisingly light for the sweetness and feels slightly too watery from the lack of bitterness. The hops are just there. Overall it’s nice to have something with big sweet malt that doesn’t feel too heavy. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle from Beer and Wine. Dark brown body with slight head. Nose is malty, molasses, sweet. Taste is similar of caramel, malts, oatmeal, brown sugar. Gets hoppier in the finish. Quite a nice beer all around. MaltOne (412) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Pours chestnut brown, brief tan head. Complex nose with roasted malt dominant, hints of molasses. Flavor follows... roasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, licorice. Flavor impression is sweet, but not cloying, with a slight dry finish. Overall, it reminds me of a lighter American Imperial Stout. Nice brown ale. Cousin_Larry (895) - - JUN 13, 2016
Sample at WOBFest 2016. Just not digging the brown sugar & molasses sweetness along with the malt flavor. It sounds good when I write it, but it just didn’t work that well IMO. Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2016
