Poured from a can into a pint glass. Thank you to shan8454 for this brew in trade!

Appearance: Brown in color with about one finger of a biege head.

Smell: Nutty, with fruity banana like smell, sort of like a hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth, medium bodied. Nutty up front that gives way quickly to a coffee flavor, which I was not expecting.

Overall: One of the better brown ales I have had. And it smelled like a hefeweizen and drank like a stout.

Can from Total Wine in Tampa. Canned March 20.

A - Pours a murky iced tea colour. One finger white head gone fast. Good carbonation. No lace, no retention. Murkiness is good, but no head is a fault.

S - Nutty, vanilla, toffee, a little dark fruit. A nice malty English brown aroma.

T - Chocolate, nuttiness, vanilla, toffee, caramel. A little woody. Nice.

M - Nice carbonation, light to medium body that leans towards the lighter end. Clean, slightly sweet finish.

O/D - Very much a well put together Brown Ale. Doesn't knock the ball out of the park, but it does what it intends to do very well. Highly drinkable and quite tasty.

Full pour into a CCB pint glass.

A: pours a quite dark opaque brown with a thin head (full pour) Some visible carbonation through the side of the glass. Light does penetrate.

S: Very roasty nutty aroma. Hazelnut and peanut. Also chocolate with a touch of vanilla.

T: As expected from the aroma this is a nutty brew. Great balance between roasted malts and nuts. A touch of chocolate in the background. Not much of a hopping.

M: Full body that comes across as very creamy perhaps thanks to the oatmeal. Has a clean finish.

Overall a real tasty beer with a great mouthfeel. Would be phenomenal to pair with a cigar.

Another big thank you to Coldsnack for this treat from Florida!

Appearance. Pours a deep and hazy amber-brown with almost a finger of khaki head.

Smell. Sweet caramel malts, coffee and vanilla with a little bit of sweet chocolate and molasses.

Taste. Sweet caramel malts again, a little coffee and cherry, roasted nuts and a bit of vanilla.

Mouthfeel. On the low side of medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall. For a style that isn't my fav, this is a pretty decent beer. Could see myself easily putting back a bunch of these around the campfire.
