UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Bottle. Sweet caramel malty aroma with roasted malt undertones. Pours medium brown with a thin white head and very little lacing. Starts with sweet caramel flavors with a rich, creamy texture. Finishes smooth with the caramel to start, but quickly changes to slightly roasted malt that lingers on the palate. Excellent brown!

As I pour I see that it is on the lush ruby side of brown witha cream coloured head that didnt settle with much permanence, but it didnt bugger off in quick time either. The aroma lingered predominantly in darker grains: chocolate malt and brown ale malts especially with a touch of dusty caramel. It is a lovely smell though. The smell isnt of deep, rich, sweet chocolate, rather cocoa powder and maybe a mention of fruit peelings. Plenty of mouthfeel upon drinking give you a chocolate mousse or milkshake sensation and then theres a return to the dusty cocoa. Theres some sweetness, but not unwelcome. A pinch of dark cocoa bitterness at the end. I did like this, but I felt that it could have had a little more character. So often Brown Ales suffer from a slight lack of inspiration. Lets revive a great style shall we?

Definitely the best out of the sampler, pour on tap at the brewery was dark brownish red with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, nuts, hints of cocoa powder, hints of earth and grass as well. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel and nutty notes, hints of grass, cocoa powder bittering it out a bit, finishing fairly dry. Nicely done!

Bottle. Friend brought this back for me throught their trip thorugh Colorado. Poured a brown color with a smaller tan head. Aroma was milk chocolate , nuts, and caramel. Flavor was very nutty, roasted flavors, and chocolate. Somewhat dry finish. An above average beer. Glad my friends knew how much I like good beers.
