Bottle... Clear dark-ruby pour with a fleeting white head. The aroma features winter spices and gingerbread. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. The flavor is sweet and spicy, offering brown sugar and gingerbread. Lingering sticky sweetness in the finish. Bottle courtesy of Bvery! shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Draft. Cinnamon, nutmeg, toffee malt, and hay aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet spicy toffee malt and moderately bitter herbal flavor. Nice blending. Pleasant. homebrewdude (8) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2012 does not count
Had this Ia the brewery.
Poured a opaque brown.
Head was somewhat present.
Aroma was great, no overpowering.
I wish the taste was like the aroma.
This was a muddy mess of a beer. Nothing really defined, left me confused.
Sweetness out of balance.
Not sure how to fix this one? Dial back the spices and adjuncts???

Tap: Deep muddy brown with a small but lasting creamy head, good lace. The aroma has notes of maple syrup, bready and biscuity malts, a hint of treacle, grassy and herbal hops, clove and coriander vapours. The taste starts sweet and mildly fruity with a light note of honey. There is a light hop bitterness and moderate spice character about the finish. The mouth feel is full and sticky yet there is plenty of carbonation as well, a tad chalky and warming too. Seems more an English Strong Ale than a Brown Ale for sure. I could have done without the honey however. StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2009
On tap. Aroma is very nice; roasted nuts, toffee, candied sugar, and light chocolate. Flavor is smooth and brown, a nice nutty flavor mixed with spice and hops. Hint of gumdrops in the background. Nice malt and yeast profile as well. Pretty tasty. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2009
On tap at the brewpub - Nice malty brew. It poured a hazy chestnut body with a bubbly ecru head. It had an aroma of dark caramel, lightly roasted malts, and powdery chocolate. A small amount of spices were added that I only picked up - barely - in the flavor, which was mainly about the smooth dark malt, chocolate, and a bit of caramel. Nice.
