Bottle from trade from fiver29. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body. Solid balanced toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

alexsdad06 (9934) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Draft at Dutchs. Pours a deep amber/copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is caramel malt, grass with a lightly toasted bread note. The flavor was lightly toasted bread that had been soaked in a caramel sauce, mild herbal notes like a green tea and grass. Nothing really stood out and I would list this as worth trying once.

Draft to taster at Dutchs. Looks solid; a transparent copper with off-white lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and toasted malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

On tap, copper brown pour with thick off white head, Notes were cereal, caramel, and bready malts, a little bit of hops but nothing to really note.This brown was lacking, really nothing you would want to drink more then one of.

This poured a nice medium brown color with an off white head. Aroma was light brown sugar, nuts, caramel, and toasted malts. Flavor was very nice simple and smooth, the pinnacle of a brown ale, medium toasted malt characters, some roasted nuts, and caramel sweetness. Very well done.
