On tap @ Walnut. Dark reddish pour with a khaki head. Sweet toast, some cola, and bread. Some caramel, grass, lemon, and some solvent on the nose. Flavor is solvent, tart lemon, and grass. Toasted malt, caramel, and a hint of cola. Not really a brown ale...alright I guess. onceblind (9443) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2013

On tap at Walnut brewpub. Pour is slightly hazy amber/brown a small tan head and decent lacing. Roasty, bready, a touch of vanilla, cocoa, nutmeg, cinnamon, and bread in the aroma. Taste is roasty, slightly grainy, cocoa, graham crackers, grassy, bready, and earthy with a roasty bitter finish. Full mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Not a bad brown.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 Tap at Walnut, pours brown with thin khaki head, settles quickly with little lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, mildly nutty, toffee. Flavor is similar, roasted malt, light toffee, nutty, with a mild malt finish. Decent roast, drinkable, mildly nutty, but somewhat one dimensional. Moderate carbonation, medium-light body, and crisp texture. A decent brown ale, though a bit mild.
Also got to try the cask version, was much smoother, slightly fuller body and texture. Flavor has some noticeable citrus bite from the dry hopping. Drinkable, smooth, and nutty.
