A good choice for a cold winterís night. It pours a cloudy brown color with a medium tan head. Malt dominates the aromas and flavors of this beer. Mostly toasted malt with nuts, some chocolate, and possilby a hint of underlying hops in the nose. Light to medium bodied with a mild creamy texture. Flavors of malt, caramel, nuts, and a touch of bitterness in the finish that tends to linger a bit. Overall a well put together beer. Quite enjoyable.

Smells like malt, looks like malt, tastes like malt.... it must be malt.
Not a bad brown ale, more interestingly complex than the traditional style.

Pours a dark hazy brown, white bubbly head. Aroma of malts, choclate, creamy, and some spice to it. Flavor is similar, spicy and crisp. Very roasted and malty. Interesting.

Reddish brown color. Malty aroma. Shorter head. Silky smooth malt with carmel flavors. Very drinkable and a good one to have next to the fire this time of year.

This was a very good brown ale. it has aroma of malts, a nice brown colour you could tell wasnít filtered. Ther head was a nice tan colour and stayed till the end. The flavour was full of malts, not too sweet, but just enough to make this a good drinkable beer.

Cloudy orange/amber color with some significant yeast floaties and a well retaineed tan colored head. Aroma is enjoyable with notes of heavy cream and sweet malt and a bit of yeast. Flavor is not as sweet as I expected based on the aroma. Initial flavor is moderately sweet malt, but then a pretty strong dose of of hoppy, spicy bitterness kickis in. Very enjoyable brown ale.
