Poured from an undated 12 oz bottle (out of Rochester NY) into a Unibroue goblet.
A: Dark reddish-brown color; clear; small and mostly short-lived tan head; good lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malts. quite sweet but otherwise rather faint. Hints of hazelnuts and toffee.
T: Not a lot of flavor. Malty and sweet, but an acceptable level of sweetness that is much lower than suggested by the nose. Decently nutty.
M: Moderate to high carbonation: body is a bit thin for the style. Mild harshness.
O: Rather average if light; improves substantially with warming.

12oz bottle

A- Pours a dark reddish brown color with a large light tan colored head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, toffee and sweetened cocoa.

T- The taste like the aroma has a lot of malty sweetness up front with a dark bready finish.

M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, this beer is pretty solid for what it is. It is an easy drinking brown ale that I could put back a few with ease.

Twist off bottle poured into a pint glass, from the ubiquitious perveyors of contract brews in Rochester, NY. The pour is a dark amber though not quite brown and offers a fairly resilient cap of tan foam. Shows good clarity.

Moderate maltiness on the aroma with a pleasant nutty aroma. I don't get a sense of artificial here yet the nut character seems a bit too solitary but the liquid is quite cold. We'll see how it warms.

Taste follows with some light roast character and a sweet nutty finish. Finish is somewhat brief and offers a spicy coarseness that fits well with the carbonation level. Overall better than I expected, or should I say, feared. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but not unexpected given the lack of complexity of the malt bill. Warming exposes the beer for what it is; a decent yet somewhat boring brown ale, and with an aroma that decays a bit as well.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. has a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of hops. Taste is light hops, a bit of nuts,a touch of malts, easy drinking and refreshing. Feels light in the mouth and overall this is a decent beer.

Bottle into dimpled mug.

Reddish brown body. Small head faded quickly to a thin bubbly film providing only 30% coverage. No lacing.

Smells of big caramel malt. Little roast... Very rubbery/synthetic hazlenut flavor. Do I detect a hint of bandaid? The beer is overly sweet. Again no hops. This brewery is not a fan of using hops in their recipes.

The body is ok. Kinda light, but a little syrupy... At least is isn't crazy overcarbonated like the other beers I've had from these guys.

Overall-- meh. Again.
This is yet another beer that makes me feel as though I've been duped. I really feel as though this brewery is a front for BMC as an attempt to lure "craft drinkers" back.
Don't fall for it.
