It pours a cloudy dark brown with a good one inch foamy lumpy tan head. Foamy lacing is left around the sides of my nonic. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell has the toasted oats and walnut up front with an ever so faint sense of hops in the background. The taste has the previously stated elements and combines some nice caramel tones. The palate is about a medium, slightly dry and a bit watery, but a decent watery. Overall, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning when I saw the price, but am glad I bought it to try a style I’m used to and like from a company I’ve never had any of their stuff. I’d probably have this again, but definitely as a novelty because of the price.
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2017 Pours brown-red with white head. A caramel malt aroma. A sweet malt taste with brown sugar and some chocolate. A lingering sweet caramel malt and chocolate afteraste. Kleg (404) - The Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2017
Draft at Moat Mountain Smoke House & Brewing Co in N Conway, NH. Clear dark amber color; Lighter color than most brown ales. No head or lacing. Thin mouthfeel for the style. Flavor is more like a rauchbier than a brown. Smoky, smooth and clean. Good. Maybe they gave me the wrong beer but I like it. DiarmaidBHK (5913) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2017
Draft at vignola. Pours brown with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Solid caramel notes on the nose and tongue with a slight nutty note. Finished clean. Solid enough. yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2017
From tap. Pours hazy brown with a small off white head. Aroma is toasted malty. Light caramelish and breadish. Sweet, dark malty. Toasted malty. Caramelish sweet and slight fruity finish. tekstr1der (501) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Nearly clear brown or with a lasting beige skim. Aroma is malty, slightly nutty with faint hints of cooked sugar. Flavor is similar, surprised it’s not marketed as a nut brown. Lots of hazelnut, filbert. A little watery and finished a tad astringent, but quite enjoyable all around.

Nice creamy head and rich brown color. Smooth full taste. Great in a warm pub on a cold night.

Draft pour. The beer is a clear copper with a beige head of foam. The aroma has toffee and nutty caramel notes. Fairly sweet taste. Medium body and medium carbonation. asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2016
Can from HB Provisions. Creamy nutty brown sugar aroma with faint, sherry-like adverbs. Hazy ruddy brown under a lasting off-white sheet. Flavour is much like aroma with nutty brown sugar along with mocha and hazelnuts. Moderate bitterness. Medium light body, medium carbonation, crisp. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 16, 2016
On tap @ Moat Mountain. Light reddish brown colored beer with a thin off-white head. Has a nice roasted malt and cocoa character right away. Slight acidity to the finish, but otherwise good toffee sweetness, some toasted nuts, and plenty of bread. Minimal bitterness. Probably my favorite of their normal lineup. kirk36 (223) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Weak brown at just over 5%. What bones are they shaking? Yeah it's a tall can but its not really that stand out ish. Too much water not enuf gravity!
