This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy brown color with a two finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a good full minute. The lacing was somewhat clingy.
The smell was full of rich nutty and coffee like aromas intermingling quite well.
The taste was mainly malty sweet and roasty adding in some light inviting chocolates, ccaramel, toffee and a light vanilla. There was a nice light roasty chocolate nutty coffee - like aftertaste that lead into a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but it was kinda creamy, smooth and roasty.
Overall, wow, what a nice brown ale well worthy of having again. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear and dark brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is a bit light, but has a nice mix of toast and nuttiness in there. Feels very effervescent at first which gives is a slight bitterness, but then mellows out into a slightly sweet nutty toast flavor. Decent, though nothing super amazing. jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours medium brown with thick, frothy brown head. Aroma is pecan/peanut, chocolate, dirt, dark coffee. Taste combines those aromas. I get a hit of chocolate but not as much as expected. More in the nose than anything else. Smooth, easy drinker. The nuttiness shines through here in a good way. Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2014
Standard US longneck, bad label. Deep, cola ruby-black, clear beer. Small bone-colored head. Malt-forward aroma with classic brown ale tones - cherries, cereal, grass. Lightly sweet, fruity, light cocoa, cereal, lightly tangy and very slightly husky-astringent. This hit on all the casting-central tones that I look for in an English-style brown ale. Medium body, very slight roast at the end. Publix, down near I-10. Thebullshornbar (74) - Florida, USA - APR 24, 2014
A pretty standard nut brown ale with notes of toffee, mild cocoa, and cereal,with hints of some musty hops peaking through. Decent overall

probably one of the best brown ales ive had. All the flavors blend in perfectly, what i notice more is the coffee and chocolate great beer FriendOfBeer (101) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2014
Aroma of roasted malt and booze. He palate reviews the lowest rating as it is very watery and the nut/malt taste fades too quickly into bitterness. Short finish. Decent aftertaste. Too much bitterness clashes with sweet flavor of the malt. Overall decent.

Aroma is very light. I cant really smell anything but a slight nutty chocolate and that may be my imagination. Pours beautiful dark brown with ruby highlights. Flavor is wonderful and consists of nuts, dark malt, chocolate, espresso. Light body. oily mouthfeel. quick, harsh finish. Very tasty but forgettable.

Bottle at home. Wow, one of the better brown ales I’ve had. Nice rich chocolatey brown pour with a sticky head. Nut and mild chocolate in this - not too sweet, not too dry, nice body. Well done.
