On tap at the brewpub in Little Rock, AR. Pours a deep brown colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened caramels, hints of nuts and chocolate, and a light earth. Flavor is solid. Lightly sweetened caramels with touches of nuts and a light oat smoothness. Chocolates come out a bit towards the end with a light earth and roast before this finishes clean, smooth, lightly dry and bitter, and lightly sweetened. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid brown ale. Nice and smooth with nutty caramels, a light chocolate, roast, and earth that is all well balanced and easy drinking. One of the better ones from Vino’s. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Thanks to my brother for the growler. Deep brown body like cola with a light brown head. Nose of lots of dough and milk chocolate. There is also some peanut. The taste has some bread crust and peanuts. There is also some light milk chocolate. Decent. ben4321 (6676) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2011
