16 oz can was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a dark brown amber color with a little vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Roasted coffee, toasted, chocolate, nutty, caramel, toffee, earthy, and grassy hops.

Taste: Same as above with light bitterness in the rear. Nice balanced of flavors too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: Pretty solid brown ale. Next time in Maine, I look forward to grabbing more of these.

This beer was a red/brown color with a medium-sized tan head. There was a fair amount of lace.

A smoky/peaty aroma. Sweet.

It tasted like smoky maple syrup, with some late piney hops.

This was a fun beer. Nice balance between the malt and the hops.

On tap at Novare Res, thanks Matt for helping me find this place.
Comes to my table on the deck a dark reddish brown without much of a head before I set my nose atop it. Smells of caramel brown sugar and a hint of chocolate with a solid hit of smokey campfire. Lightly nutty flavor with darker sugars and caramel and a nice but never overpowering level of smoke. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Nice smokey brown ale.

Poured on nitro-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a dark, slightly cloudy, mohagany coloring with a thin, dense, yellowish head. Aromas of coffee and hazelnut, with a touch of chocolate. Very sweet and warm. Flavors are nutty sweet and darkly roasted, with a smooth, light body. Rich, nutty aftertaste keeps the sweet, warm feeling wrapped around your tastebuds like a winter parka. Smooth, creamy finish with a sparse, watery coating left behind as proof of the tastiness you just consumed. Good, solid beer at a manageable ABV.
