3.88/5  rDev +9.6%

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.

3.71/5  rDev +4.8%

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.

3.95/5  rDev +11.6%

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

3.31/5  rDev -6.5%

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.

2.2/5  rDev -37.9%

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.

On-tap at The Gibson, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear brownish amber in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin ring of bubbles on the surface around the edge of the glass; these eventually faded away.
S: There are moderate aromas of nuts and sweet malt extracts in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is rather nutty and has some hints of sweetness along with a very light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The finish is both clean and watery.
O: This might be an OK beer if you like a very basic nutty ale that also has notes of sweetness.
