Hazy deep nutty Amber with a thin off white top. Aroma is a bit herbal, hard to put my finger on, with a bit of chocolate bubblegum. Funny brown malt flavor with some odd herbal hoppiness, a touch of citrus rind, a little Belgian yeast, I think, and a little early balanced bitterness. Not bad. Certainly complex and unique. thooper41 (557) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2015
12 oz bottle: Appearance is reddish brown with off white head. Aroma is nutty with a bit of malt. Taste is equally nutty with a bready malt. Christpuncher (3215) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2015
A nutty and malty mess. Not very good for its class. Smells malty and somewhat nutty. Some roasted malt notes. Pours reddish brown. Had at home foyle (447) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a 3" cream colored pillowy head that drops very slowly leaving lots of lacing behind. Color is clear reddish-brown with some visible streaming carbonation.
Aroma: sweet malts and caramel are dominate but some piney and earthy hop notes also present.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, slick, with a damp finish.
Flavor: rich roasted malts, a hint of char, nuts, a hint of chocolate, hops in the taste are more earthy, but a hint of pine is still around. A slight dankness in the finish.
Overall: a very nice brown ale. Oscbert (1359) - Lincoln, California, USA - APR 23, 2015

Bottle; slightly auburn brown color with a brown head. Aroma of northwest spicy/fruity/piney hops, with some dark fruit and caramel. Flavor was a blend of sweet caramel, nuts and some earthy/spicy hop notes. A bit thin at times. DedicatedToFun (4003) - Santa Monica, California, USA - MAR 21, 2015

Bottle. Tawny Amber, average cream coloured head. Nutty caramel, bigger than average bitterness, but not really what I’m after in a brown ale. Just ok. Finhead (1900) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2015
An amber-brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma has pine hops and some bread and nuts. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a slightly more bitter finish. Very tasty. maxwelldeux (4373) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear brownish color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is hoppier that I would have thought based on the style, and smells like grass with just a bit of toffee underneath. Taste is a bit sweet with some slight toasting and tiffee coming through. For some reason, I’m just not feeling this one.
