On tap at Cato’s Alehouse. It pours a deep reddish brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is nice and toasty with some chocolate and nuts. The flavor is nutty and toasted with strong earthy, menthol and spicy hop character. Medium/strong bitter finish. The malts work really well with the hop varieties and usage. This is a West Coast Brown Ale I can get behind. Really tasty. dwyerpg (6045) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 19, 2012
This is pretty good. A creamy brown ale with a bit of hops to the body. Light finish. A solid introduction for me to these guys. IrishBoy (4185) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 26, 2014

Live ’15 - SA, danke either motelpogo or oldmanriver... Smells like pancakes drizzled with caramelised maple syrup. Seamy, easygoing silky mouthfeel, feeding you a liquid dessert of toffee, milk chocolate cake spiked with hoppy red berries. Mellow & nice.
Bottle; poured a dark cola brown color. Aroma was hoppy for the style, with a definite NW profile. Fruity, earthy, a bit of spice and some roasted/caramel. Had a nice twist on the style, with a solid balance of malt and hop components. NW style hops; Finish transitioned from hops to caramel/roasted in a nice way. Good stuff BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle. Brown with tan head. Aroma of biscuit, toffee and nuts. Taste is nutty, chocolate biscuits. Dry and a little bitter. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 31, 2015
The head is ok the body dark brown. It smells malty, roasty, lightly hoppy. The taste is malty, light hoppy, bit boring BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Deep chestnut and mahogany pour with a small eggshell head that left very little in terms of lacing. Aroma is muted. Roasted malt, nuttiness, and a hint of caramel. Flavor is so much better than its nose. Cocoa, light coffee notes, almond and cashew, char, and vanilla. Moderate mouthfeel and mild alcohol...easy drinkin’. Solid.
