22 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown color, 1/2" of pale brown head. Roasty and nutty, malty sweet with a nutty finish and lingering hop bitterness. Medium body. Smells of roast malt and nuts. Very complex and flavorful for a brown ale.

Tap at Pelican. Pours to a mahogany brown body with a starch white head. The aroma is of caramel and grains with a subtle milk chocolate. Flavor of deep roasty malt with a nice toast and lemon zest like hops. Chewy medium palate. Nutty.

BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Bottle from the brewery. Pours with a clear copper to brown hued body with a small, off-white head. Aromas are nutty, chocolate, brown sugar, and a light spiciness. Flavors are pretty hop forward, spicy, American hops, pine, chocolate forward over dark roast characters. Nutty. Takeaway: nuts and pine. Medium to lively bubbles, medium bodied. Good.

Pours a dark dark chestnut brown, fairly clear with a slow dissipating head. Is it suppose to be a Dark Mild an English Brown Ale or an American Brown Ale? A touch of sweetness, a bit of tobacco, some savory mild character along with a fair bit of piney aroma make this a very drinkable "brown" ale. Hinting at tobacco, yet full enough to be a pleasing session beer. Northwest hops play a prominent role, lending a distinctinve finishing note. Pleasing to the palate, not overwhelming.

A sweet and roasty brown ale. Very delicious. Almost like a Scottish ale in sweetness and flavor.

Chestnut-brown, but clear ale; tan head. Bit soapy nose, lots of melanoidins suggested. Smells malty, if thinnish, but some C-hops in evidence. Bit dullish chocolatey flavour; (autumn) leaves too, but soon gone; straw. Very sticky, gristslick. If a bit dullish at first, it might well grow on you.

Pours a clear brown with a nice sized tan head. Aroma is clean, sweet malt, soft hops, minimal chocolate, and perhaps a small bit of roast although it is very subtle and hard to pick out. Taste is dominated by sweet malt up front (but not too sweet) followed by light caramel, soft chocolate cocoa and a small amount of hop bitterness into the finish. Well-made and perfectly enjoyable brown ale.

The Dan Journal #489. 22oz bomber. First pour is filtered with a bronze highlight to the brown hue. Finger width of dense cream colored head. Aromas of bright citrus hops and sugary, maple malts. The body is on the fuller side of medium. A crisp tingling effervescence and a smooth fresh malt character. Nice brownie and toasty malts with a subtle nutty and earthy flavor. The malt palate is both sweet and tangy with, when mingled with the carbonation, a slight citrus candy note. The hops are there in the palate, and while they definitely add a deeper degree of depth to the palate, they are still well blended and add to the overall balance. Slightly sticky in the finish, but the syrupy sweetness lingers as long as the astringent effervescence and the tangy, bitter hops. This does seem nice and fresh, which is paramount for a brown ale personally. Well done and well crafted!

phaleslu (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2011
22 oz. bottle from the brewery. Pours a clear ruby-amber color with a sticky beige head. Aroma of toasted caramel malts, brown sugar, toast, pecans, and earth. Flavor of toasted caramel malts, grains, wood, earth, and hazelnut. Light-medium bodied, with a toasty, earthy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Solid brown ale.
