Poured from a bottle into snifter.
A: Dark reddish brown with a one finger white head that dissipates to a thin ring. Good lacing.
S: Sweet malts. Molasses on the back end. Malty with no hop nose.
T: Not a whole lot of flavor. Malty and smooth. Lingering sweetness.
M: Moderate to high carbonation for the style. Thin mouthfeel.
O: This beer left me saying "eh." It was left in my fridge after an oyster roast. Not something I will seek out. Finishes too sweet for my liking. IMHO it would be a great beer for those who haven't yet ventured into the realm of craft beer; a gateway beer if you will.

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.

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.

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.

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.
"Now you're on the trolley...the Barrel Trolley!" Taglines write themselves... This stuff pours a clear sunset topaz-amber topped by a finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises hazelnut, light booze, caramel, and some strangely menthol-y hops. The taste brings in more of the same, with the hazelnut coming through as artificial and some nice rubbery plastic entering the scene as well. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a kinda limp brown ale, one that's not necessarily offensive, but one I don't see myself ever drinking again on purpose.
