3.96/5 rDev +0.8%
Appearance: Pours a clear reddish brown with a 1" tan head. Thin cap remains, nothing lingers on the walls of the glass.
Aroma: Caramel malts, bloody/flinty and slightly sweet. Slight hoppiness, and as it warms it gets sweeter & fruitier. Toffee.
Taste: Tart arrival, sweet across mid-palate. Roasty, dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Hefty; solid & substantial. Not heavy, though. Mid-to-heavy weight. Moderate carbonation.
Overall: This is a great example of an American brown ale. Love the style and love the beer; nothing pedestrian about this one. Caramelly, tart, and clean. Hides 6.7% really well. On the sweeter side of the brown ale spectrum.

3.81/5 rDev -3.1%
Poured from the 12oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a deep dark amber, with half a finger of head.
Smells toasty, toffee and roasty malts.
Tastes very much in line with aromas. Good flavor and decent hop bitterness on finish.
Mouthfeel was solid and very drinkable.
Overall, it's a good representation of the style.
