pours a clear dark brown with a medium size tan head, and good lacing.

smell is of spice, malt, and brown sugar.

taste is somewhat watery, brown sugar, malt, caramel, and some spice, end is smooth, and a little bit of bitterness.

overall an average brown ale.

Must be newly released in bottles, just got a case in my store.

Pours a deep amber color with a decent off white head. Nose has lots of dates and raisins with hints of caramel chocolate and underlying scent of coffee. Some of the hops come through as well but its barely noticeable.

Roasted malt sweetness up front with a pretty smooth mouthfeel. slightly slick on the swallow but the flavors all hold together quite well. Caramel coffee like sweetness up front followed by a bitter coffee finish.

Simple but not bad and decently priced. Pretty good roasted malt flavor.

3.5/5  rDev +3.6%

Appearance: pours a clear brown color with a 1" head that slowly falls.

Smell: caramel and a brown sugar sweetness is detectable by the nose.

Taste: caramel, hints of chocolate, brown sugar, some earthiness, and a mild bitterness are the most detectable flavors.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp to start, smoother at the finish.

Overall: a basic brown ale with a decent flavor profile. You wont be blown away with this, but it is a sessionable ale.
