Got on tap at the local Old Chicago. Pours brown with light brown head. Not too sweet, not too dry. Has a bit of a nutty aroma. Was hoping the taste would follow, but not much flavor to speak of. Very mild and light. I may have gotten a bad sample as I finished off the keg. Will have to try again.

On tap at Lazlos in Lincoln. From Notes 9/29/2012. Pours a brownish color with white head. Nutty, malty, toffee flavors. My favorite Empyrean beer Ive had so far. At my travel site, 50 miles northwest of Omaha, I am always hoping that they have this one at the bars. When they do, Im relieved to get something both local and 10 times better than Bud.

BillHick420 (460) - NORWAY - FEB 1, 2013
Pours clear light brown with an off-white head. Thin mouth feel, decent aroma of coffee, hints of chocolate and caramel. Not to bad, but feels like a stout/porter knock-off.

Gription79 (2886) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is berry, toasted malts. The flavor is chocolate, roasted malts, yeasty, berries, slight woodiness. A well made brown ale. Reminds me of the chocolate covered jelly sticks.

A solid brown but nothing special. Pours a somewhat pale brown with a fizzy head that quickly fades. Malt and a hint of nuts.

Not a bad brown. I would like to see a longer-lasting head. Also, mouthfeel was on the thin side - needs a little more body.

Bottle pours ruby brown with floaties and khaki head. Aroma is smooth slight sweetness with roasted barley and a little tobacco. The taste is frothy and malty, very malty, moderately roasted with a little fruit in the finish. The carbonation is light as is the body for a darker brown, to fit their "easy drinking brown ale" concept. For a standard American brown it?s enjoyable.
