Chestnut body with wispy white head. Aroma of nuts, caramel and earthy hops. Flavor of burnt sugar, alcohol, grain and grass. Thin and watery. Frank (4196) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Orange brown, small head of fine bubbles and thick rings of lace. Mild, roasty sort of brown ale. Light bodied, medium carbonation and very slightly watery. Finishes w/ an earthy hop bitterness that is perhaps a bit too strong for the dryness. Not bad though. SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 19, 2009

Sampler poured draft at the brewpub (Michigan City, IN). Pours a dark copper and brown, iced tea, with decent whitish head that settles to a film. Aromas are light sweeter dark malts, faint nut and brown sugar. Initial is a bit different, tastes are bitter up front, with a bit of oat and toasty malt on the backend, bitterness, light sweetness mixes in there. A decent brown ale, a little underbodied but not bad. xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Clear dark brown with small beige head. Sweet, nutty aroma, very slight. Flavor is roasty and light with nuttiness, semi-sweet, seems somewhat oxidized cardboard but that can’t be right seeing as this is one of their mainstay beeers, maybe its an earthy hop presence, who knows, not the bartender... Medium body with light carbonation. A farely uninteresting brown with a funky flavor. RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Pleasant enogh entry into a more or less bland beer style. Thin brown pour smelling of roasted caramel malt, and nuts. The flavors also were largely roasted caramel, nuts, coffee, ans hints of herbal hopping (light). Decent and drinkable beer. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2008
This poured a clear brown with a slender tan head that didn’t hang around too long. It had an aroma of dark caramel, roasted nuts, coffee, and dark bread. Nice roasty flavor sweetened with caramel and chocolate with a a nutty/earthy bitterness to balance it all out. Good sessionable stuff.sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 15, 2008
