4.01/5  rDev +13.3%

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brownish amber with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of off white head that fades into a thin patch.

Smell: A toasty and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with hints of nuts, caramel, and chocolate. Toasted barley malt with hints of biscuit, caramel, toffee, chocolate, toasted bread, nuts, and yeast. Sweet hints of brown sugar. Very light earthy hop presence with a hint of grass. A pretty decent toasty aroma.

Taste: Like the smell suggests, a sweet and toasty malt driven taste with notes of caramel, chocolate, and nuts. Toasted barley malt with upfront notes of biscuit, toast, chocolate, caramel, toffee, nuts, and yeast. Sweet taste of brown sugar. Subtle earthy hop notes of grass. A decent nutty and malty taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, slick, and very smooth.

Overall: A pretty decent nutty take on a Brown Ale. Light but has some nice toasty malt flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Had on tap at New World Tavern--Plymouth--served into a pint glass

Appearance: dark brown in color, minimal head, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: lots of caramel, some leather and nut

Taste: follows the nose with some chocolaty notes

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, moderate-low carbonation, sweet start with a slightly bitter backbone.

Overall: This is an above average to good brown ale. What I love about this one is its complexity and multiple layers of flavor...instead of just the usual nuttiness I get with this style. I would get this again if I saw it on tap.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Rich brown with thin, light tan head.

Smell: Caramel, cherry, nuts and a slight metallic cast.

Taste: Caramel and cherry, with some nice nuttiness that continues through the finish, along with light floral hops.

Feel: Relatively high carbonation over a fairly light body. Semi-dry finish.

Overall: Nice example of a sessionable Brown Ale.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a very effervescent copper/brown with 2+ fingers of tan head. Above average head retention & lacing

S: Toastyness, a little bit of leafy hops

T: Toastyness, dryness, a little nuttiness up front. More toastyness, nuttiness & faint leafy hops as this warms, some brown bread sweetness as well. Finishes toasty, dry & fairly crisp

MF: Light/medium bodied, firm carbonation

Easy to drink, a pretty good brown

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pretty dark amber color with a small head. Smell is light, a bit of nuts. Taste is nutty, malts, light hops, a bit unusual flavor. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not terrible, but not something I would need to try again.

Picked up a 22oz. bomber of this at Bierkraft in Brooklyn, NY.

A: Brown with some bubbles. More on the translucent side.

S: Malty and touch of Hershey's chocolate syrup.

T: Vegetal, slightly malty, with a slight burnt malt finish.

M: Thin and lacking life.

D: Why would I want to drink anymore of this?

Overall, I do not recommend getting this beer to go let alone getting it at all.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium orange-brown amber with a thin light khaki head that dissipates to patches with light slippery lacing. Aroma of nuts, sweet caramel malt. Flavor follows aroma with sweet nuttiness, light caramel malt, brown sugar. Light to medium bodied. A good domestic take on the English brown style, but a bit light on flavor intensity. The flavors that are present are nice, but leave me wishing for a bit more. A good, but somewhat pedestrian brown ale.
