Poured a clear brown hue with a slightly off-white head that had good retention and lace. Aroma was a mix of caramel, roasted malt notes and a nuts. Initial flavor was a bread like malt character which gave way to a mild sweetness and finished with a almost coffee like dryness. Hops were mild and there was s subtle taste of nuts. cmc619 (501) - California, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Classic pint glass pour from bottle: just the perfect medium head atop a translucent reddish-brown beer. A bit of lacing. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, malt, something else. Flavor is somewhat mild. Sticks on the tongue with a bit of peanut butter flavor. Sweet. Minimal hop balance. A bit of cardboard. Overall, not as robust as I wanted--whatever that means.

5/1/11. 12oz bottle from Cavie. Clear reddish brown pour with a big tan head that fades to a centimeter. Tannic, buttery aroma with a malty, nutty flavor with some caramel. Meh. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JAN 28, 2011

This brown ale poured a a light brown colour with a very light, tan coloured head. Scents include brown sugar, molassass, and a slightly nutty scent. First sip was smooth but slightly watery. flavours of slightly roasted malt, molassass, ripe fruit and caramel. Finish is nutty and sweet with a thick mouthfeel. jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle from beer of the month club. Nothing special. Adding notes from last few months, have not been able to comment perfectly on each beer. I blame the beer. Ron (3955) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Nutty, caramel aroma leads into the flavor. There was an element of chocolate in the first few sips that was pleasantly surprising. Nice healthy malt body and a mild bitter hop to finish. a solid nut brown for sure. Lyncham (251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2010
12 oz. Bottle. Thin. High carbonation. Honey tones with very slight nut hints. Slight bitterness earthy hops. Brown-reddish color. Light lacing Cybercat (5828) - Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Pours a nice clear cinnamon brown with a thick, if not persistent, creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty with an overtone of molasses and not too strong. Flavor is fairly malty with a hint of caramel. Texture is fairly fizzy and a bit on the thin side. Not great, but worth at least a try.
