got in the winter taster mix 12 pack

Poured into a frosted pint glass and had a nice chestnut/ cola color

about a finger of head and left a nice lacing as I drank

Smell: nuts and coco were very noticable

Taste was very nice mix of nuts, coco and a hint of coffee, smooth drinking with good flavor without being heavy

I must admit I enjoy this quite a bit and had to have another...

Had a bottle at a pub. Solid brown ale with perhaps a bit more pronounced hops than is typical for the style but it works. Aroma was brown caramel malt, some nuttiness, a bit of herbal hops. Taste was sweet malt, hazel and Brazil nuts, a bit of coffee, chocolate brownie, nice roasty flavors. Was a tad boozy perhaps but not a fatal flaw. Nice smooth creamy mouthful that would not be out of place in a cream ale but the flavors are more more assertive than that. Fizzier than I would like. Nice offering and worth at least one try.

Going through a dead frog sampler pack--

This is a decent beer. I think it succeeds by putting forwards some dark beer flavors (chocolate and crystal malts) while still remaining refreshing and quaffable to the general public.

Almost like a cream ale, it is very smooth with a strong malt body that resonates with strong converted malt flavors and a bit of coffee/dark chocolate flavor towards the end of the sip. It has a rich, true-ale finish and a low carbonation that works well with the medium mouthfeel. A sessionable entry to the brown/darker beer spectrum for anyone. Something to be satisfied with in a 'crafty' pack, but not anything to seek out.

I've been curious about this one for a while. I finally got a six pack after trying their Chocolate Mint Brown Ale. It comes in clear bottles, so you know ahead of time it will have a clear brown body. The head is creamy looking with a nice beige-brown colour.

Roasted malt is prominent in the aroma, along with hops and a nuttiness in the background if you look for it. The aroma follows through in the taste but with a sharper hops in the aftertaste. I also taste espresso and a light milk chocolate. It has medium-to-high carbonation, with a medium body but a light taste.

Overall, it is nice. Good taste but a little light and more hops than I expected.
