Dark reddish brown color with tan head. Roasted malty flavors and aroma. Light bitter finish that dries out a bit. Flavor is dominated by the roasted flavors of the malt, which are good. Mild palate, even with a good finish. Good.

Tastes of yeasty roasted malts, caramel and cereal with a little spice and some hops. Not my favourite class of beer but this was pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours medium dark brown, chestnut color. Head dissipates rather swiftly.
Nose is fairly weak for some reason.
Palate is rather surprising, a whop in your face after a dissappointing nose. Big roasty flavors with a suggestion of brown sugar are present. Finish is medium to short.
Makes a nice refreshing beer during the warm months when you’re not in the mood for a heavy winter warmer, but still would like to reach for the darker side of things.

Bottle at Novare Res.
Pours a lovely brown with reddish clear body. Well the bottle was gone in like 5 minutes so they’re doing something right! Supremely drinkable, i’d wager this would be a killer session beer. Aroma is roasted malt, sweet brown sugar, and caramel. Flavors are very comparible. Sticky sweetness at first, with a nice mild finish. One of the best unflavored browns i can remember having!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark brown colour, small head. Aroma is chocolate, some malt and some roasted malt. Taste is dominated by chocolate, like a cheap chocolate pudding almost (weird for a beer I think), some malt and some licorice. Not impessed.

Huge thanks to jayg for sharing this one with all of us at the Orlando gathering.
Pours a brown body with ruby highlights. Off white head with medium lacing. Aromas of nuts, sweet malts, dough, roast notes. Flavor is very nutty and sweet, with a nice malt background. Finish is medium lenght and sweet, thin palate but not watery. A nice brown ale, and one I enjoyed more than their IPA.

Black pour with some frothy bubbles forming for head. Sweet thin nutty and biscuit aroma. Also some floral aromas coming through. There’s a yeasty, nutty flavor with some faint hops in the finish for the flavor. Fairly thin and very refreshing. A great session beer.
