2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
the aroma is solid with caramel, hints of vanilla and a richness. the flavor doesn’t match the nose a mild caramel flavor and light hops. though very little and it’s very mild. the finish is way to hoppy for a brown and leaves a odd sweetness not very nice
Pours dark, reddish with beige foam that persists. Medium body and smooth carbonation. The roasted malt has a cacao element, more coarse than smooth. Slightly bitter and nutty.

Nice roasty flavor. Moderate bitterness. More full-flavored than a lot of browns. jrodooo5 (1718) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Pours brown w/ a tiny head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is sweet malt. The taste is oddly sweet but lacking in traditional chocolate & hop flavors. Kind of a weird brown & not in a good way! matthewjk (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Right on...I’m digging what Wolaver’s is throwing down. This is on the sweet side, and I like it. Delivers on its billing and there is not much to add. 12oz bottle. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2014
"creamy and luscious it is not (as the brewer states). it’s an ok beer that has all the aroma and flavor expected of your average brown ale. just nothing special."

Appearance is more amber like a dark IPA than a brown. Aroma is malt, oak, nut, wheat. Taste is the same. Dank oak and nut. Bitter on the end.

Bottle - 341ml. Nice amber body with a thin, off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and honeyish hints. Its decent malty/hoppy taste carries woody notes. Ends with a good bittersweet finish. AdamChandler (5178) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Clouded burnt orange.
Sweet toffee nose. Sweet taste. Thin, nutmeg and other spices. Cinnamon and creamy finish alexsdad06 (10803) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle at home from early backlog notes 07. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malt, nuts, light toast with mild earthy bitterness. The aroma was fairly light even with warming. Nothing more than a basic brown. HarryPlopper (57) - - MAY 17, 2014
Amber and hazy appearance with some foam that disappeared quickly. Mild amount of lacing.
Very hoppy smell.
Bitter and hoppy taste with some caramel undertones. I wasn’t getting much vanilla. Not much aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is smooth and thin. Not too much carbonation.
Overall a decent beer.
