Bottle: Another great tasting beer from Deschutes. A lovely brown color with a fluffy, light brown head and lacing that was more clingy than a cheap suit. Wonderful! Aromas dominated by rich roasted nutty malts which also greets the tastebuds as well. A small bitter trailer keeps the brew from being too sweet. One of the better brown ales out there! harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2006
This is a rich and hearty brown ale. I found this to be very enjoyable to drink, with a true on true caramel flavor, rich and sweet, somewhat syrupy, with caramel candy flavors. A pie crust type of maltiness, with some cinnamon spiciness. Finishes with some semi sweet chocolate, and is truly a great end to a hard day at work.

Brown color with a tan head. Lightly hopped with a pine aroma followed by a nice toasty maltiness. Flavors are well balanced with a touch of chocolate coming out. A little toasty again. Hops are slighly bitter with notes of pine. As light as it looks, it does have a decent mouthfeel. Finishes out with a sharp little tang of bitterness. Not too bad. ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 3, 2006
Bottle: Pours with a two finger, rocky head; deep amber colored body; the aroma is a lightly nutty, toasty and cola hinted, maybe some light spicy hops; slightly burnt caramel and chocolate maltiness; adequate body with a building, slightly astringent bitterness in the finish. Well, it’s a brown, so it’s not terribly exciting. A decent brew, though.
