On tap at the brewpub. Medium brown in color with a thin white head. An over all nutty aroma with some mild choclate roastedness. Has a sweet candy chocolate flavor , but the body is a bit thin. TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Aroma is of syrupy sweet roasted malts. The pour is deep dark mahogany, with a nice frothy tan head. Flavor is what I like in a brown ale, not as full as I like I had hoped for. The flavor is dominated by the roasted malts, and their chocolate accents. The finish is slower, and very enjoyable. I really like this offering from Natty’s.

On draft at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a brown mahogany with garnet highlights and a fair ring of tan head. Sweet raisins and caramel malt aroma. Some nuttiness shows up in the flavor. A bit cloying in the finish but overall, pretty good.
