3.7/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured from bottle to Pint Glass

A - Deep Brownish Amber. About a finger of head

S - Not an overwhelming smell but I do detect some spices and malt.

T - It tastes like roasted malt, Cinnamon, All Spice, and some nuttiness.

M - Fairly carbonated and spicy tasting especially for a Brown Ale

D - All in ale not a bad pint. Some really interesting flavors going on but I wouldn't drink this on the reg.

Definitely an enjoyable brown ale from Stillwater!

Good dark brown color, but with little to no foam. The odor was subtle with nutty and malted notes. I enjoyed the taste, very malty, but with a nutty and almost chocolatey taste as well. Not sweet and a gentle hop background to round out the malty ale well. The beer was creamy, with a full-bodied feel, yet, not too much even on a warm summer day on a patio where I had it. Overall, a good brown ale, worth getting again. Not my favorite brew ever, but a good example of the style.

4.3/5  rDev +20.1%

This roasty, nutty smelling brew pours a clear, dark brown with a finger and a half of lacy, off-white, rocky foam that dissipates to a fine lacing on the glass and ring around the edge of the beer.

The taste follows the aroma with lots of nutty, toasted malt on the palate and a nicely balanced, hoppy bitterness beneath. The toasted malt is definitely the backbone throughout the beer.

The moderate body on this brew is smooth to creamy.

I fully enjoyed this offering from Liftbridge and it complimented my flatbread pizza with chicken, tomatoes, feta, herbs and balsamic dressing nicely. Would I have it again? Oh, yes, most certainly.

This is my first full review. Poured from bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Dark brown. Just a little bit of lacing, and relatively poor head retention.

Smell: Nutty, with some hints of chocolate.

Taste: As indicated by the smell, a blend of chocolate and nuttiness. Not as much chocolate in the taste. A little bit of sweetness. Overall, the taste is a little muted, but still a surprisingly pleasant balance of flavors.

Mouthfeel: Heavy, and a little syrupy. Although I did not initially taste much carbonation, the more I had the more I noticed....the carbonation is a little on the heavy side.

Overall: A solid, but still underwhelming beer. Easy to drink, but not too much in the way of extreme flavor.
