Reddish-brown appearance rather like clay soil with a fine, compact head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving minimal lace. Smell is pleasant and smooth with no particularly remarkable notes beyond an inviting whiff of hops. Taste is wonderfully smooth--rather creamy-sweet at first and with a dryness at the end that lingers for a surprisingly long time. The smooth taste also means a smooth mouthfeel, though it lingers a bit longer than I would prefer. Nevertheless, this is a niceably drinkable beer--the best brown ale I've had thus far.

Poured a dark transparent brown,with a nice tan head,I instantly smell sweetness,rasins,chocolate,it has a bold smell.A suttle nuttiness(go figure)is followed by a whirlpool of sweet whisky,quality coffee,and creamy carmels aged in a wood barrel.The mouthfeel is outstanding,a little thinner than it appears when poured,but it makes for a great beer that is more than drinkable,I cant wait to check this one out again...till next time Mr.Smith

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Deep amber color. Offwhite head settles at a film. Lacing

S - Bitter roasted malt smell with fragrant nuttiness (peanuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans)

T - Very nice nutty taste (same nuts mentioned earlier), smooth creamy malt with a faint bitter hop.

M - Very smooth almost oily, carbonation bites a little bit.

D - Really a very nutty beer, good all around and fun to drink.

What a beautiful color-deep,deep brown with a lovely red glow around the edges. Aromatics include milk chocolate, sweet toffee and a touch of butterscotch. The mouthfeel is heavenly and includes a nice buttery viscosity. Flavors are complex and hint of sweet butter cream, some light maple undertones and a bittersweet hop component. I can't help but finding maple cream chocolates on the tail end? This is a nicely done brew that has gone well with many a fish and chip dinner!

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a Delirum snifter.

A-Pours a very deep brown with a light gold to it as well with very little head or lace.
S-Very fragrant smells of rosted malt and bannana very complex.
T-Tastes much like it smells the nuttyness of the beer comes through much more in the taste than it does in the smell.
M-Very smooth with very little carbonation goes down very easy
D-Not really something i would drink on a regular basis but for those who really like the brown ales might be something to look into.
