Big fan of this brown. The taste and aroma have a nice roasty/sour note. It's good year round but especially in the fall.

Reddish brown out of the can with a big foamy tan head. Sweet cereal malt nose. Strong roasted grain and some puffed cereal taste with a bit of tea, toast and a bit of spice. The hops bloom in the finish as a nice bitter balance. Nice example of a style that can be rather dull. BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Can from Adam from trade. Pours dark reddish to brown color with a little light showing through and a one finger off white to light khaki head. Aroma of sweet malts, dark fruits, some light grassy hops, smells like a malty pale ale. Flavor is some bock late, dark fruit, a bit of lightly biting hop at the end. Then there's a strange heavy metallic finish that ruins what seems to be otherwise very nice flavors. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not bad.

2011 backlog. 12oz can courtesy of jzzbassman. Thanks Monte! Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a huge head. It took almost 15 minutes for it to reside. The nose is roasted nuts, caramel and faint chocolate. The taste is the same with some citrus hops in the finish. Medium prickly mouthfeel due to the carbonation. Overall a nice beer. I was afraid of infection but there were no off flavors. 3.2 snoworsummer (5917) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 30, 2014
From a can. Pours hazy dark reddish brown with a bubbly beige head. Smells like sweet, nutty caramel and cookie malt, raisins. Tastes like sour raisins, tangy nuts, malty, light dry hops.

Rating from memory. Brown pour. Nutty, malty, citrus aroma. I remember thinking it had a stronger hop presence than most brown ales.
