(Draught) Pours a hazy dark brown body with a medium cream head. Aroma of chocolate, raisins, roasted malt, caramel, and nuts. Flavor of cocoa, roasted malt, raisins, coffee, figs, and caramel. lavaaaron (89) - - AUG 7, 2017
Smells like brown bread, tastes like a cold October day. Very smooth with initial hints of vanilla, molasses and syrup, maple but not in a real New Hampshire maple syrup way but more of a fenugreek imitation maple way. This gives way to dark malt tastes, black patent or chocolate? Hops are just noticeable. Very relaxing beer, wish I had a fire place and a flannel nearby to make this perfect.

This is an amazing brown ale. It tastes good, it's perfect for after some specialty doughnut holes. Nice and dark.

Now that sits pretty well on the taste buds as most proper brown ales do (and this is no exception). So get u one. ttoadee (1553) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Nice brown pour, small white head. Nose is cocco. Bittersweet. Middle is caramel and dark chocolate, medium roasted malt, little smoke. Finish is still bittersweet, but gradually dries as it fades. Well balanced.

Dark, opaque brown with a creamy head. Rich, roasted malt aroma. Somewhat sweet, a little chocolate up front, with a bitterness of hops and dark roast coffee in the finish. PorterPounder (8228) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2016
Temple, Tx- Spec’s Liquor - 12 oz can. Murky, medium brown pour, tight khaki colored head Aroma has some brown sugar sweetness, some cola notes. Flavor has some toffee essence, some horehound candy, just a hint of chocolate. Decent spritz to the mouthfeel. dlihcsnatas (767) - Temple, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Dark brown (almost black) with a really thick tan head. Smells of toasted malts and the taste is loaded with toasted malt and balanced out very good with the hops to make this not too sweet not overly bitter. Almost as good as my all time favorite brown ale so this one will be high on my list to find fall. Had to dock my overall a couple points due to having to get it in the CAN. brandon1989 (667) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Pours a dark brown color with some nice red in there as well. There was a small off white head that dissipated rather quickly but still managed to leave some lacing. The aroma is quite rich. Medium to dark roasted malts. Dark brown bread crust. And some sweetness mixed in as well, maybe some caramel. The taste is very similar. Not much noticeable hop presence and there is a medium mouthfeel. degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Can. Pours a deep brown with red highlights and a high, fine-grained, creamy, solid light brown head. Nose is brown sugar, pecans, cherry, molasses, caramelized pears, and chocolate malted. On the tongue, it’s drier than the nose; smoke, caraway, biscuit, and pumpernickel take the lead, with baking chocolate, black tea, and coffee soon after. The finish has more fruit and sweetness, with a hint of spice; there’s the ghost of a fruitcake there as it fades. Nice beer, and a bit more of a rough edged take on the brown ale.
