This beer pours clear yet dark brown with a modest rocky head that hangs around for quite a while.
The aroma consists of roasted malts with traces of chocolate notes poking through.
The taste is more of the roasted malts that mimic slightly burned toast with some biscuit malt backbone wrapping itself around the perfectly balanced hops.
This is a medium-heavy bodied beer that lets you know you are drinking something more than watered down beer. Very nice!
This beer doesn't drink down quite as well as some browns, but if this is all I had, that would be okay. Nicely done from a well-known very solid brewery. Cheers!

Beer is brown and clear with a tan head of small and medium bubbles, low carbonation, no lacing, low carbonation.
Aroma is mildly malty and mildly roasty.
Beer is medium to light in body, simple but nice. Not very hoppy in flavor or bitterness, a mild roastiness in there, a mild nuttiness. It was decent, I'd probably have it again at a party but I think this has been discontinued.

On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a dark brown with a small light tan head that has good retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The nutty toffee, earthy hops, and a bit of caramel. The taste has a light sweetness with a bit of nuttiness and toffee. There is also some caramel and a bit of earthiness. The finish has a hint of bitterness and a little sweetness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Descent brown ale. I think I like this one a little more than Tumbler.
