Growler courtesy of Skyview. Brown color with no head. Aroma seemed very much like citrusy hops, not the Noble or earthy I expected. Walnut as well. Strong, nutty taste. A little chocolate. Dry and chalky finish. Skyview (5920) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2007
On draught at the brewpub in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a clear dark old copper penny amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a ring and some lacing. Aroma of dark caramel malt, some roasted nuts, citrus zest and a touch of chocolate. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of roasted malt, nuts and citrus. Finish is slightly bitter with a malty multi-grain aftertaste. The roasted malt character is pretty decent with this brew. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Brown color with white head. Nutty nose with a light roasted character. Stronger than most bown ale aromas. Strong nutty flavor and a smooth body that has some harsh undercurrent to it. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2007
On tap at Titletown. Appearance od a dark brown color with light brown head. Aroma of light roasted malt, some mild chocolate and some light hazelnut. Taste is light floral hops, light chocolate, mild wood, light coffee, and some hazelnut. Medium carbonation and medium body, this is a great brown ale. The finish is a bit too astringent to be perfect.
