thanks to scott for tossing this one my way.

a - brew poured a watery brown with a thin bubbly beige head that was gone in a moment. lacing was spotty and streaky. swirling the glass brought things back to life.

s - nice chestnut brown sugar nutmeg malts. good sweetness. some grape and caramel.

t - flavor is not as nice as the nose promised. toasted malts with somewhat of a lagery pilsner shine. some fall seasoning in the background.

m - a bit harsh with a macro lagery vibe.

o - love me a good brown ale, and as such i can get picky on the style and this one didn't do it for me. the autumn seasoning on the tail end was a nice touch, but overall this one is a bit average for me.

12 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 11/11/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a small fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, raisin, plum, pear, biscuit, toast, chocolate, light roast, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, raisin, plum, pear, biscuit, toast, light chocolate, herbal, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, plum, raisin, pear, biscuit, toast, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Minimal carbonation and medium bodied; with a very slick, moderately creamy, and fairly bready mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a decent old ale. Good balance and robustness of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and smooth to sip on for the abv. Could use more carbonation. Pleasantly enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Deep brown on the pour with ruby hues. One inch white head retains fairly well, but settles after a bit. Lacing sticks to the glass in a thin, broken ring.

S: Rich scents of caramel, cocoa, mixed nuts, toasted grains, and even some coffee roast. Very tight and vague fruitiness at its core, perhaps suggestions of fig. Dry grassy and herbal hop scents.

T: Toasted grain, cola, bread crust, nuts, cocoa. Touch of black coffee and a slight acidity. Underlying berry fruits. Flash of citrus zest, grassy hops and a quick spicy/herbal bite. Grainy finish with fading acidity and mild hop spice.

M: Rich medium body. Soft creaminess, but a little watery still. Forceful scrubbing carbonation. Mild tingle of alcohol.

O: An odd beer. Definitely not an Old Ale, as it is labeled on this site. I'd say it's more of a German-influenced brown, caught somewhere between ale and lager.A little different maybe, but not very thought provoking or memorable.

I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Plainfield, IL, making this single 12oz bottle $1.67. No freshness date.

The beer poured a clear Dr. Pepper cola color with mahogany highlights when held to the light. It made 1-finger of off-white/beige head that lasted about a minute and left some moderate lacing.

The beer had a roasted barley and caramel malt aroma.

Taste matched the smell, but with the addition of some mild herbal hop bitterness and a very noticeable spicy alcoholic bite.

Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

It's alright and very drinkable, but still not going on my favorites list.
