A: Had this beer on-tap at Gene's Haufbrau, poured into a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick consistency. There was a thin creamy head that quickly dissipated. Good lacing.
S: A nice aroma of malt, something sweet and sugary, and a nutty quality.
T: Tasted of malt, the ubiquitous brown ale nuttiness, light hops, and a hint of toffee as well. A vibrant, well-rounded, surprisingly forceful flavor.
M: A fairly well-carbonated beer with a slightly dry finish. Medium-bodied.
O: A bit different than the typical American Brown Ale, but tasty nonetheless. Drinkable.

Single finger slightly tan head on a hazy brown body with nice lacing. Aroma is excellent with sweet toffee, caramel malts, brown sugar. Flavor is simple but incorporates the brown ale caramel malts and brown sugars well without being too sweet with a subtle earthy hop presence. Medium body's bad light to moderate carbonation. I admit I had this after a very piney and tart pale ale so it is hardto judge but it was excellent overall.

The beer is chestnut brown with a mild haze, sporting a quarter inch of soapy tan head. Aromas include toffee, chocolate, coffee beans, nuts. Chocolate flavors up front with a subtle earthy quality. hazelnuts and semi sweet chocolates with a robust malt profile. Hop bitterness and pine resin in the finish, more than is customary for the style. Well balanced and flavorful. Good stuff.

A: Pours a cloudy red-brown with big khaki head that takes its time settling down and leaves some great lacing behind.
S: Aromas of coffee, toasted grain, sweet bread a light floral note and a hint of citrus.
T: Taste of chocolate, espresso, roasted malt, a light herbal note from the nugget hops, with a slightly dry bitter finish.
M: Smooth mouthfeel with medium body and decent carbonation and a resinous aftertaste.
O: A good american brown (with some porter-ish roots) and a nice hop character. Will be looking for more for sure.
