A beautiful brown ale, nice head. Very inviting aroma of malts and what I guess is hazelnuts. Taste is malts with more hazelnut. Very smooth, but it seems almost "greasy" and doesnt sit too well. Maybe thats just me.

Pours ruby red with an off white head. Skunky at 1st until the head diminishes. After the head is gone it has a sweet roasted malt aroma. Sweet malts are the dominating taste with some fig. There is also some nuttiness to it. The main thing to this beer is its dominating malts.

A dark ale with plenty of taste. Not too much of an aftertaste, but a lot of flavor. Medium bodied.

Amber bronze with a large fluffy head. Aromas are caramel, toffee and spice - if a bit a bit light struck and skunky (damned clear bottles). Flavours are better - nutty and sweet with some sourness. The finish is burnt toffee and coffee with some fruitiness. Not bad, even if let down by its aroma.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2005 Dark amber brown, with a nice off-white, medium head. Roast coffee, chocolate, sweet malty aroma. Sweet malts dominate the taste but there is also nuts and a bitter finish. Nice long aftertaste. Nice full body and smooth with average carbonation. Excellent.

Not the absolute best brown, but good none the less. Pours a nice lighter brown/red color, with a good white head. Aroma is kinda off the charts to me, but some good malty roasted coffee. Well balanced hops and malts. The flavor was good, but not the best for a brown. Thin body. Def good brew.
