Sample at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of caramel malt, roasted nuts and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 24, 2012

A second sample was this fine brown ale. Hardly an electrifying style this is instead an excellent sessionable beer. Though your wallet may not agree your palate will be happy after a couple of these.
Aroma / Appearance - The almond brown base overwhelms the minimal head. Noble hops, malty iced tea, and nutty blasts of caramel tickle the senses. Peanut butter on white toast makes the mouth water.
Flavor / Palate - Nuttiness, malts, and noble hops ease into a warm transition that invites more reflection. The finish is like walnuts ground up into a smoothie. This is a solid beer that balances drinkability with the need to be able to taste things after a couple of imperial pints.
Tap. Nice roasted coffe up front followed by a vanilla candy cane sweetness. Decent. Tmoney99 (14857) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2011
