On tap at the Pint. Has a very dark brown color with some carbonation and little head. Smell is of sweet malts. Taste is also of sweet malts/roasted/smoked and finishes with a slight hop bitterness. Overall a very good beer. Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Update, Dec 2012: My fave PP beer. Just the slightest hint of nuttiness, minimal bitterness, minimal sweetness, just a woodsy presence. Malty. Original from 2005: Not too nutty, nor sourish, as many browns can be. Earthy and delightful with just a hint of brown sugar and smoke, this is quaffable in the extreme. Nice creamy ring head lasts and really adds to the palate. Shared with my father in law in swelteringheat in Hatfield, MA. MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle from the brewpub. Brown, clear, nice tan head. Malty carmel-chocolate aroma. Malty flavors, mostly carmel. Slight chocolate. Malty finish. clowny (4) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 19, 2014 does not count
A decent example of an American Brown Ale of which there are very few. Low IBU is sufficient to balance the mild malt sweetness. Taste does not linger into the next sip. MaBeer1972 (2205) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 31, 2003
A very different "brown" than I am used to. Very dark almost purplish color. The flavor is very malty... malts rule here! Can't beat that brewpub-fresh taste either!

Bottle from the brewpub. Deep brown and clear in color with a nice tan head. Malty and caramel arom. Chocolate notes. Malty and caramel flavor. Chocolately. Finish is malty. Nice beer. UncleMcHoppy (33) - Old Tappan, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2013
22 ounce bottle. Not a bad brown ale for a chilly and dark autumn afternoon. While brown ales are not among my favorite types of beer, this one is a commendable representation of the category. Nice dark color, white frothy head, and a malty finish.

Pours a three finger light tan head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Almost black cloudy mahogany color. Roasted malt nose. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Flavor is malty, smooth, not overly sweet - decent brown. $3.55 for a 22oz bottle from Ruggeri & Sons Greenfield, MA. LiteWait (266) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 24, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 22 oz bottle shared by AirForceHops. Deep brown like lacquered wood. Light lacing produced from a very thin layer of off white head. Aroma and taste are almost identical. Molasses, Malt and light nuttiness. Light in body with lots of favor. A very tasty and well done Brown Ale. I would drink this any day of the week.
