A-Semi cloudy brown, ruby around the edges. Two finger head that tries to leave behind some lacing.

S-Roasted malt, caramel, nuts, some spice.

T-A great balance between the roasted malt and nuts. Some cinnamon, ends with nice bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, tad watery with some carbonation.

O-A really good brown ale. Good balance and the right amount of bitterness.

Served - bottle into Pint Glass

Appearance
Rich brown color, Dark copper, with 1/4 in head that continues throughout.

Smell
Rich, nutty smell. Hazelnut with rich malts and slight hop scent.

Taste
Can really taste the nuts and the roasted malts. Sort of bitter on the back of the tongue. Orange peel, caramel. The taste really makes this beer.

Mouthfeel
Complex taste of nuts and malts that hits your mouth hard and leaves a bitter hoppy feel on the back of your tongue.

Overall
A great brown ale with an excellent taste. The taste really makes it. The aftertaste on the back of the tongue is complex with the taste of orange peel, roasted malts, nuts, and caramel.

on tap at lounge 5280 in DIA. The beer is identified on the receipt as "seasonal" and on the tap handle as "Brown No. 3", so I'm not positive this is the right beer.

A: Clear brown. Served with little head but there is some lacing.

S: Roast, chocolate, some nuttiness. The aroma is fairly mild but what there is is good.

T: Slightly sweet, roast, chocolate and vanilla, some nuts with bitterness on the finish. There's no discernible hop character. The finish really makes this beer--without it, it would probably be too sweet, but as it is, I could drink this all night.

M: Full and silky with minimal carbonation. Really nice.

O: I hope to have the opportunity to try this beer again, because I'm afraid I'm over-impressed because I'm at an airport bar towards the end (I hope) of a very hellish trip. If my senses are reliable, this is a fantastic beer.
