3.35/5 rDev -3.2%
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
This one pours out a red-brown color with a small head. The aroma is weak, and primarily chocolatey and malty with a touch of nuttiness. A bit thin smelling. The taste is that of a solid brown ale - a solid malty backbone, a bit of chocolate, a slight amount of coffee, and a bit of nuttiness on the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is relatively smooth with a low level of carbonation. The drinkability is quite good. Overall, it's an alright and fairly enjoyable beer, but there's nothing here to hook into you.

pours out a deep ruby/garnet/mahoghany colour with a thin beige head and little lace. smoky chocolate aroma, a bit nutty with nougat and a touch of red ripe fruit. the taste profile is about the same as what i experienced in the nose but with a decent dose of bittering hops. the usual suspects of the nougat/caramel/choco variety all have a say on the tongue. the spicy bittering hops seem a touch out of place, but i'm not complaining. there is a touch of alcohol, too. finished dry. medium bodied at best, with a crisp texture and structered nuance. drinkability is ok...a pedestrian nut brown.
overall just another twist on a style that isn't well respected. i love a well constructed brown ale, as they can be delicious. this isn't one of them.

A: Pours a clear dark amber bordering on garnet reddish brown in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation at the sides of the glass near the surface. The beer has a half finger tall light beige head that quickly reduces to a very thin film covering about 40% of the surface of the beer in a single patch and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate lacing is observed.
S: The overall aroma of this beer is quite light but the only discernable smell that comes through is quite nutty.
T: There are notes of toasted malts as well as a malty nuttiness that also has a very light bitterness associated with it. This nicely balances out the normal malt sweetness.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Nothing overly special to note about the flavor or aroma of this beer though the nuttiness is pleasantly pronounced.

[Best served in a Dimpled Mug]
The pour was a Carmel brown with a large (2-3 finger) light tan rocky head that quickly receded to a thin spotty film and a very small collar with some very light spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt, a very mild resin hop and a doughy yeast with notes of caramel, a light cocoa and a mild nuttiness.
The taste was lightly malty sweet with a mild hint of a caramel sweetness at first and then had a light bitter presence with a hint of cocoa and a mild nutty feel towards the end. The flavor was around for a little while and was of a mildly bitter caramel taste.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery in texture with a moderate carbonation.
Overall a pretty basic beer, which was actually quite drinkable but nothing special...

This beer poured a caramel colored body with a small head and a small umbrella of lacing. Smell was on the weak side other then some roasted nuts, caramel, and a slight hop aroma. Taste followed closely behind but the finish is somewhat unpleasing. My guess is it was overpowered by the spices. Still, not a bad tasting brew. Medium bodied, medium carbonation and an overall decent beer.
