The appearance was a semi-dark copper color with a finger’s worth of off white foamy head that slid off and formed some spotty lace.
The aroma had some toast, roasted nuts, floral and piney hops and some earthiness at the end.
The flavor moderately blended the sweet to the roast with the bitterness of the hops making a decent play in the overall scheme of the balance of things. Fairly nice aftertaste of the stated aromas. Finish was somewhat sweet.
The palate was about medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Decent carbonation. ABV felt fine.
Overall, pretty good brown I wish I could get again.
On draught at the Blue Heron brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear dark copper brown colored ale with a creamy off-white head that dissipates to a thin ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, a hint of roasted nuts, and some floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, some fruity essence, with flavors of roasted nuts, some dark pitted fruits and floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet, a touch sweeter than their regular nut brown ale, with some medium floral hop aftertaste without the bitterness.
