3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours with a small head, dissipates fairly quickly but maintains nice lacing. Smooth mouthfeel with nice level of carbonation - enough, but not too much. Lightly sweet and malty, but not overpowering. Roasty, but stops short of a porter or stout. A simple brown, but a good one.
12-ounce bottle pours brown with spritz of tan head and lacing with chunks of live yeast floating in the glass. Aroma: faint brown sugar and nuts. Flavor: same as aroma. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, somewhat creamy. Tasty and drinkable, but a bit too thin for style. gripweed57 (2314) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2017
From old tasting notes. Tawny deep brown color. Small brief beige head. Faint toasted malt aroma. Light caramel malt flavor with hints of chocolate. Smooth and flavorful. BlackHaddock (7235) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2017
12oz bottle on 4th Feb 2017 at my daughters new place in Laguna Niguel. Nice brown body, beige head: malty lead which carried through to the finish. Aroma had malty molasses and chocolate notes, taste just followed on with semi-sweet maltiness and chocolate flavours. tightslice (1280) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle from Lucky in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is roasted malts, some chocolate. Taste is light roasted malts. I mean it’s a Brown Ale. PugUglyBrewer (617) - - DEC 22, 2016
Dark Amber to light brown color with off white/cream colored head. Aromas and flavors are balanced nicely between nuttiness, caramel, toast, and subtle roast and florals. An easy drinking sessionable brown.

Nut brown aroma with a smooth pole in the body with brown sugar and walnut. A nice and refreshing brown ale. Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 23, 2016
355ml bottle from Jumbo Costanera Center. Santiago, Nov. 2016 Pours a cloudy brown color with a big off-white head that diminishes quicky and leaves a small lacing. Aroma is a mixed bag of caramel, some cocoa, raisins, nuts and some apples, herbs and berries. More malty, but still some hops there. Taste is a bit uneven and unclean, but still packs a punch of toasted and caramel malts. The acidity and herbal/fruity bitterness doesn’t get along very well with it though. Medium body. Fairly drinkable, just not my cup of tea. I like my Brown Ales maltier, woodier and nuttier. Fukito (1059) - Santiago, CHILE - OCT 20, 2016
Clear dark ruby with a small off white head. Aroma is faint raisins with some dried fruits. Flavor is slightly toast malts, with some raisins and a touch of butterscotch. Medium to light palate. OK brown ale. HourGlass13 (849) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Pours up a clear brown, and moderately thick, off white head. Light toasted malt aroma. Rich and robust, slick and sublime, lots of dark malts with hints of molasses sweetness round out to a nice nutty taste. The latest batch have been a little more watery than before. freekyp (2194) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Clean and crisp but lacks the earthy nuttiness and chocolate character of other browns. A bit dry with some powdered chocolate. Mild hops and a nip of tartness shows in the finish. Meh.
