On tap at the brewery. Pours brown with off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, bready, toasted malt and dark fruit. Body is medium and smooth. Toasted malt, brown sugar, dark fruit and some hops fill the mouth. Finish is long and semi-dry. OK brew.

chinchill (5396) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2014
12 oz bottle with new label served in a Belgian snifter 1 month before BB date. Pours clear dark reddish-brown with a weak head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma: Caramel and medium roasted malts; faint hint of English hops. Flavor: moderately strong; limited complexity; slightly sweet balance. A touch of spicy hops in the finish and hints of smoke and coffee in the lingering aftertaste. Feel: smooth, medium-full body with medium-light carbonation. O: near average for style.

Draught at a bowling alley in Portland. This is a pretty bland brown ale without much distinction.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2013
12 oz. Bottle. Good brown ale. Brown sugar and grain scent with a bready multigrain and roasty coffee quality. Dark brown pour with a bubbly, foamy head. Medium, silky feel. Brown sugar fronted taste with molasses to roasty coffee - very near a porter.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is vanilla and oak. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and caramel. Easy to drink a good brown ale from Shipyard.
