Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Brown pour with a small head. Dark roasted malts. Tilled earth. Chocolate glazed donuts. The flavor has a distinct accent of anise and licorice. Dark roasted cocoa and old wood closet. Medium body, supple and smooth. Solid, but not to the level of HF’s hoppy stuff.

Bottle sample during RBWG Friday night tasting. Pours cola brown in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, earthy hops, a splash of resin, this is not an average brown ale, very tasty. Another solid brew from these guys.

Growler consumed fresh in october 2013. Pours a brown with beige head. Very aromatic brown ale. I get decadent nuts and burnt toast with some light earthy hops. Taste is a nice showcase of malts with nuts and caramel. Some light bitterness. Palate is on the light side. Very well executed brown ale and as good as it can be for me. I do prefer Shaun’s hoppy offering by a mile though.

Deux verres de dégustation dans cette interminable file d’attente. Un liquide qui est brun sur lequel flotte une tête solide. Au nez, les malts bruns, le chocolat et les noisettes dominent des houblons verts et bien frais. En bouche, les saveurs de noix grillées, de caramel et de chocolat laissent peu de place aux cultivars. Sur le palais, le liquide m’apparaît être de moyenne densité. La texture est agréablement crémeuse. La finale se fait sur des notes délicates de chocolat et de houblons amers. Cette version est très bonne. Trop facile à boire. D’ailleurs, comme la plupart des créations de cette maison dans les collines.

Tasted on 2/7/14 from a bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, thanks to Leighton for sharing. Pours clear light cola brown with an average beige head that leaves average lace. The nose is a very nicely balanced hopped brown ale with nutty malt, light chicory, and some resin hops. The flavor is the same nice balance of nutty malt and bitter resin hops. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long nutty and resin hops finish.

mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
[5254-20130426] Tap. Toasted brown bread malt aroma has a bit of a barley bag going on. Clear, dark brown body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Toasted malt grain flavour has a lightly sour-bitter base. Medium body. Tasty but a little rough. (7/4/8/4/15) 3.8
