Taste is of toasted malt, nut, and cocoa. The main body is underwhelming compared to others I have had in the style, even though it hits the major flavor components. The aftertaste I find to be slightly medicinal and is unpleasant. Generally I like this brewery's beers, but this one was a miss for me.

Poured on tap at Longhi's Wailea into shaker pint.

A: Very dark brown allowing almost zero light to penetrate. Small one finger head.

S: Honey, pecans, biscuits.

T: Sweet malts mixed with a nice nutty flavor. Reminds me a bit of honey roasted pecans.

M: Medium body coating the tongue nicely. Fairly easy drinking ale.

O: A very solid brown ale.

A- pours a ruby-brown color with some light creeping through, small foamy light-tan head retains long after the pour

S- chocolaty roasted malt base with a lot of nutty aromas, some bready sweetness with a hint of caramel and honey

T- roasted chocolate malt gives a bitter-sweet kick of cocoa and milk-chocolate, nutty flavors of pecan & hazelnut, honey, leads to a slightly sweet finish with more chocolate on the linger

M- light, slightly watery mouthfeel with moderate carbonation leads to a smooth and creamy mouthfeel that actually gets more chewy as it finishes, high drinkability

O- American browns are typically boring and all taste the same, but this one was different. Big nutty aroma and flavor compliments the chocolate malt. I'd like to try this on tap next time I make it to Maui.

Yes, another can courtesy of the creator of the canquest, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can/ Has a very dark brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, a bit bready. Taste is malts, nutty, bready, more malts, refreshing and satisfying. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, appearing opaque in the glass with a massive light tan head with good retention and lots of lacing. Nice aroma of toasted malt, nuts and hints of chocolate. Flavor is quite light toasted malt, mild cocoa and nuts, thin semi sweet finish with a hint of hops. Light to medium bodied. A major difference between the aroma of flavor in this one. The taste is very subdued from start to finish. It has all the pleasant brown ale flavors of the aroma, but rather thin. A pleasant, but light tasting brown ale.

12 OZ can poured in a pint glass. It looked good, nice brown hue with a full creamy -looking head that faded fast. Didn't smell bad, I couldn't catch much of an aroma but I have a bad smeller. I must have gotten ahold of a defective can, because it tasted so bad I thought "this must be what diesel fuel would taste if you drank diesel fuel." Perhaps it doesn't travel well. Too bad, I like me a nice brown ale like Abita Turbodog. Better luck next time!

One of their limited releases.

Pours a dark brown with light brown highlights. 2-finger fluffy brown head that dissipates relatively quickly.

Aroma is sweet with roasted malts & chocolate.

Taste has some coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, marshmallow and some nuttiness. Quite nice.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and cleansing.

Overall, a very nice beer. Glad they decided to can this one for a little while.
