Poured into a mug, the appearance was a semi-dark brown color with some red hues along the sides. A finger’s worth of white foamy head started and died off at a fairly nice pace. Messy lace. The aroma had some chocolate, sweet and somewhat milky, with a mild bready malt with some dark fruits and a touch of earthy hops. The flavor keeps the same previously mentioned aromas to hit a nice blend into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with fair sessionable sort of smooth milky/creamy feel. Decent carbonation. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, good brown ale worthy of having again.

Filled a 64 oz growler for home. Poured with a good head but not too heavy. Nice red-brown color. Smooth finish with the bite of the roasted malts. Not hoppy, but not intended to be.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2012
4oz pour at the brew pub. Awesome! Poured a dark ruby, fine tan head, light chocolate malt aroma, rich malt flavor, lots of chocolate, slightly sweet, rich and chewy chocolate, an excellent chocolate porter disguised as a brown ale. Pretty darn good.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2012
Light brown in color, clear with a thin head. Watery in the flavor this beer needed more work. More a beer for the masses than a good tasty brew for the geeks. Light in the malt.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours brown with a fleeting beige head. Smells and tastes of mild cocoa, mixed nuts, and barley. Muted, but decent.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 27, 2009
On tap @ the brewpub. Brown with a small tan head. Roasty malt aroma with hints of smoke and caramel. Sweet flavor and a bitterness from the roasted grains. Medium body, smooth mouth feel with an average carbonation. This is an easy drinker.
