Draft sample. Poured hazy brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and nuts aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectatios where met.

Sample at Twenty Tap in Indianapolis. Pours dark brown with a medium thin beige head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, roasted nuts and hops. Light body with a sweet malty character with notes of toffee and mildly bitter hops. The finish is malty with a short sweet aftertaste. Decent overall. shrubber85 (11615) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2013

Tap at the brewpub. Standard brown ale - gotta have one, right? Slightly murky brown pour with a small foamy head. Mild nut and chocolate. Okay. Patrickctenchi (6730) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Nearly clear.........woody brown.
Aroma is lightly nutty, malty.
Taste is light chocolate, nut, malt.
Nothing surprising, but good.

Tap: Medium brown hue with a frothy off-white head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of walnuts, toffee, biscuit, earthy and herbal hops, and a hint of juicy fruit gum. The taste is biscuity, caramel, nutty and slightly spicy with some grassy Fuggle bitterness upon the finish. The mouth feel is medium-bodied with soft without being underwhelming. All in all a solid Brown Ale. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2012
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of frothy off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated cola brown colored body and a poor lacing. The initial nose was yucky and a strange brown malt. The mouth feel was mellow from start to finish with an off-tasting thick brown malt aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of brown malt. Not one that I would likely drink again. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Very average brown ale, nothing wrong, but not a lot happening. Too little carbonation, hints of coffee in bloom, which seems out of place, finish leaves a coating on the tongue. patrick767 (4123) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 11, 2012
tap at Dash In - Pours dark and mostly clear amber-brown with a small off-white head. It has a mild caramel malt aroma. The flavor is sweet, mild, and bland. There’s a little caramel and in the finish some rather generic hop bitterness. It’s light to medium bodied and overall a disappointment. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Draft sample @ Ft. Wayne Oktobeerfest. Nutty roasty caramel malt aroma. Deep amber with a large beige head. Nutty roasty caramel malt flavor. Light body, soft carbonation.
