12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

The beer poured a dark brown color with a 2-finger tan head. The head retention only lasted about a minute and didn't leave much lacing, but it did leave a thin layer of cream on top that remained throughout the session.

Caramel, other malts, and chocolate smell.

This tastes pretty good. It's on the sweet side, which would be expected from a beer with 7 malts in it. Lots of caramel, nuttiness, roasted malts, and chocolate flavor. Not much in the hops department though.

Smooth and creamy but not too thick. Actually light to medium in body with low carbonation.

This is the first beer I've ever tried from this brewery and I'm already a fan. This was a really good nut brown ale.

12oz bottle, no freshness date even though the label leaves a space for something to be imprinted. New to the Chicago area, I've had some of their stuff in the past and enjoyed thoroughly.
L - cloudy brown ale capped with a thinner ivory head
S - caramel, bread, chocolate, yeast
T - brown malt, nutty, bready, caramel, spicy earthy hops
F - creamy and smooth mouth feel. Fairly clean finish.
O - good nut brown ale here. Nothing exceptional, but definitely drinkable.

Pours medium brown with a wispy tan head. Some lacing sticks.
.
The smell is of caramel, brown sugar, roasted nuts and a hint of cocoa.

The taste is of caramel, nuts, and a touch of chocolate. The malty sweetness in balanced by mild roast and subtle earthy tones in the finish.

It is malty smooth and creamy. Very pleasant smoothness and aftertaste.

It hits the style on the head. A rich malty smooth that is sweet, but balanced. Caramel-ish, nutty, slightly chocolaty with a smooth texture. I had a second bottle with leftovers from Thanksgiving, and it went well with the free-range turkey and the gravy!
