12oz can. Pours a medium brown with a small creamy white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet nutty chocolate malts.
The flavor is sweet nutty chocolate malts that are a bit acidic. There's a bit of bitter roast in the finish with some off plasticky notes. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, an OK brown.

Many thanks to Crafting a Nation for this Upslope brew!
This is #BOTG 30! Go Stros, looking forward to another win tonight.
Poured from can to Brooklyn tulip. Noticing Upslope cans aren't terribly carbonated, even an aggressive pour won't overflow the glass. Pours a transparent brown rainwater color. Not much head or lacing. Decent enough looking brown ale. Smell- fresh coffee beans. Smells like I stuck my head into a fresh pot of coffee. Toffee, caramel. Nice aromatics to this one, I don't think its brewed with coffee at all, but it really comes out in the malt. Taste- oh yeah. roasty bitterness. coffee, toffee candy. Loving the coffee presence here. Not really sweet, this is highly drinkable and an interesting example of the style.

16oz pint at the Glass Half Full taphouse in advance of night two of the Beer Diaries Colorado premiere.
This beer appears a clear dark russet brown hue, which leaves a streaks of island arch lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.
It smells of robust dark chocolate and oily nuts, a grainy caramel malt, some soft char, a touch of citrus pith, and earthy, leafy hops. The taste is more malty up front, before a clavacade of bittersweet cocoa and mixed nuts comes crashing down, a mild roast waft about, and some tamed leafy, weedy hops balance things out.
The bubbles are fairly understated, the body a heady medium-heavy weight, and decidedly smooth, with a pleasantly subtle creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the expected sweetness readily tempered by a lingering earthy hoppiness.
A rather enjoyable, and surely drinkable Americanized brown ale - not overhopped, but instead beefed-up in the mouthfeel area. Worthy of at least a round or two.

One and a half fingers of tan head on brown, amber ting'd colored body.
The aroma is a nice nutty and malt smell. Really nice.
The taste is nutty and malty as well. A solid profile.
Smooth texture with low carbonation and medium body.
A drinkable brown ale and tasty too.

Yet another canned beer provided by the
(in)famous woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pretty dark brown color with amber hues and a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malts, nutty, caramel. Taste is good, malts, caramel, nuts, a touch of hops is present, very flavorful. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall this is a high quality brew worth seeking out.

A- Solid brown with a substantial brown head which is thick and creamy, leaves light lacing on the glass
S- Strong notes of caramel, light chocolate and malt sweetness
T- Light bitterness throughout, roasted flavors and cocoa sweetness, slight warming, a light bit of dryness on the finish
M- Almost no carbonation, heavy and smooth, almost heading into porter territory but good
O- Kind of straddles the line between a brown and a porter in my mind, very enjoyable, would definitely have again
