2010 Bottle - Pours clear brown with a large beige head...aroma is grainy and roasty, dry malt...flavour is similar, burnt grain and dk chocolate bitterness, metal and roast....finish is a bit minerally, but a good riff on a boring style overall...
Well done. Aromas and flavors of sweet wheat bread. Grainy and smooth. Enjoyed it. FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Rachel brought this one back from a trip to San Antonio. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with red highlights and a large foamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was cola, cocoa, vanilla, fairly prominent nut and a bit of dark fruit. The flavor was woody and toasty with a strong nut presence followed by faint cola, dark fruit and smoke. Long toasty and nutty finish. Medium body. Excellent. I wish I could get more of this one. wombat23 (1665) - Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Draft at the source. Clear brown color with small white head. Nose is roasted malts and coffee. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, light chocolate, and has a fair amount of nuttiness. Good. darbeer75 (955) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2016
On tap at Real Ale brewery; Aroma: nutty and chocolatey; Appearance: dark amber with off white head; Taste: nice flavor; nutty but not bad -- not unnatural like many nut ales; malty, not very complex -- reminiscent of a porter; Palate: medium-heavy body; Overall: favorite pour of the day; would buy again if I find it.

It’s very brown with a decent head. Most brown ales I have had are more amber than brown but this one is brown as I guess it should be. Smells roasted with some smoke in it. Taste is caramel, roasted malts, and herbal bitterness. Left a very dry sawdust like aftertaste that was not too desirable. It’s decent and one that I am sure will visit again. Last had this in 2009 and my thoughts on it then are pretty much same now. BeerRenter76 (1028) - Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Originally rated on 2/4/08. A decent brown ale with flavors of nuts, faint hints of fruit,and roasted malt. a little bitter but not bad. a little on the watery side, with a smooth finish. better than many other browns but not great BiiruBierBeer (1056) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Nice rich malty smell. Taste is malty with notes of raisin and fig. Medium body, medium carbonation, and some foam. ttoadee (1552) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Clear medium brown pour, no head to speak of. Nose is mild coffee and roasted grain. Bittersweet. Middle is nutty malt, medium mouth-feel, touch of coco. Sweetness tapers off some at the end, but still controls the flavor profile. Nice Brown. BVery (11223) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Tap at Cottonwood. Brown pour but not terribly dense. Smaller white head. Nut and coffee, hint of sweetness. Not bad in the style for sure.
