Pours a nice dark brown with red hues. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, and caramel. Tatse is very well balanced of roasted malt, nuts, toffee, cocoa and caramel, offset perfectly with hops. Great brown ale. BRiddoch (11) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 27, 2014
12 Oz. Bottle poured. Reddish brown with a nice tan head. I could smell the fruit and caramel while I poured. Nice solid taste of plum with a hint of chocolate. Nice smooth aftertaste. Great fall beer. Mibeersnob (50) - Howell, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Poured from bottle to pub glass. Pours rich brown. Nice thick head that goes away rather soon. Light sweet taste. Almost creamy on the palate. Overall is a great beer. Has some awesome malt flavor. A great brown beer. EvanFriend (584) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2014
One of my favorite brown ales. Not too thin, well balanced - not overly sweet or overly hoppy like many brown ales can be. An excellent beer in a style that is all too rarely done well. swenocha (81) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Brown pour, small tan head. Slightly cloudy (this is bottle conditioned, so not surprising). Great english malt aroma paired with nutty, malt, and maybe a bit of coffee. Taste is much the same. Some toasty bread as well. Very dry and smooth finisher. A new favorite brown...

Pours an orange brown color with a small wispy head. Aroma is malty and fruity and pleasant. Taste is nutty and flavorful with a nice roasted malt taste.Can taste a hint of sweet chocolate. Drinks easy since it is on the light side. Slightly bitter finish, NICE brown ale, of course from a top brewer. It rung my bell.

Pours a nice brown, decent head. Taste is slightly malty, smooth and warm. Really good. BlueRidgeMatt (39) - Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Great Brown Ale! Nice nutty, roast flavor. For some reason the carbonation really jumped out at me and I liked it with such a deep earthy flavor. Fantastic from start to finish! S_Side_Smitty (766) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Pours an opaque brown with a small tan head. Aroma is rich roasted malts and for some reason Iím picking up some faint tobacco. Taste is very malty up front with tinges of dark chocolate going into a molasses sweetness. The finish is a roasted and mellowed bitterness. Great beer.
