Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a mostly dark brown color with a light tan foamy head that trickled off at a decent pace. Sliding roaming lace.
The aroma had a sweet roasted maltiness rolling into some sly sweet nuts and bread. Slight earthy hoppiness.
The flavor was mostly malty sweet with a slight roastiness to it. Nuts and bread came about slightly. Aftertaste was bready and nutty. Finish was basically the same.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed a bit lower and the ABV felt fine.
Overall, I didn’t mind this brown ale, probably could slug back a few pints on a late Summer’s afternoon or early Autumn. generallee08 (778) - New York, USA - JUN 25, 2014
The body has a dark brown color with a slight reddish hue when held up light. It is dark but the clarity is still good. Its head has a light tan color and stands about one finger tall. It slowly fades down to just a wispy thin layer that makes some slick lacing. There is sweet roasted maltiness in the nose with notes of dark caramel, toffee and just a slight hint of hops. The flavor has a very sweet and bready malt character with notes of brown sugar, caramel, and some deep roasted notes. There is a very light and smooth buttery flavor as well. Hop flavor and bitterness are very light and offer very little balance to the sweet malt. It has a medium body with a smooth texture and light but active carbonation.

12oz bottle thanks to beerbill, pours a cloudy dark brown with an amber hue and large khaki head. Aroma of cocoa, caramel, caramel, and nuts. Taste similar to aroma with an overlaying fruitiness, yet kinda of bland.

12 oz bottle from the brewery. Used my Newcastle glass. Deep, rich brown poor with tons of carbonation. Very thin small off white head. Not much lace at all. Nose of caramel and nuts. Taste is much the same. Not going to get you real excited but… it would be a nice session brew if you live in NY. It’s a very standard and straight forward Brown. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2011
12 oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours brown with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel and malt. The flavor is similar with caramel and malt with perhaps just a touch of roast. Mild hops bitterness at the finish. This is a straightforward and enjoyable brown ale. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2010
