Draught at the brewpub. Clear nut brown. Perfumy, roasty malt aroma. Dryish with rounded mouthfeel and solid body. Well hopped with notes of citrus and herbal spices. Well balanced. I enjoyed it. fiulijn (20514) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Draught at the brewpub, 6% ABVmcberko (17840) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2015
Cloudy dark amber color. The aroma is lightly dusty; the mouthfeel is slightly less dry than the other beers here; malt and caramel flavor, a bit roasty, lightly ashy, with correct bitterness.
On tap at LaConner, pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Nose brings out toasted caramel and toasted bready malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted caramel, bready malt and butterscotch. Pretty nice dynamics to this - slightly more interesting than the average brown ale. Solid.

Light hazelnut brown colour with a very big hazelnut aroma. It’s a local crop, so I wonder if they’ve actually got some in there. Harsh astringency, minerally, brackish...this is really tough to drink. The bitterness has come out all wrong, and the malts don’t offer much save a light hazelnut note. Totally undrinkable. I only wish this was a cookie-cutter brown.
on tap-pours a thin retaining off white head that laces and hazy amber color. Aroma is mild medium malt-molasses/brown sugar. Taste is peat, medium malt, secondary earthy hops. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009

Deep brown colour, thin light brown head. Very sweet and nutty aroma, brown sugar and a bit toffeeish. Flavour is super sweet and sugary with some nutty malts, light bitterness and faint astringency. Overly sweet, but I’ve had worse. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Draught at the breweryDJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006
Clear medium brown color. Some tobacco, maple, and some simple wood and nut notes. Dry palate. Smells like maple syrup, very sweet, with peanuts as well. Drinkable, palatable, but simple. Some spices and chocolate in the finish are redeeming.
Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 30/09/2005
