look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Dark brown beer, ruby red at the edges when held up to light. Some lacing on the way down but not that much head after my pour. Smell is pretty faint, smells like malts and mollases. Tastes slightly sweet like maple syrup. Nutty. No hops to speak of. A thin mouthfeel with a dry finish and slightly chalky residue on the tongue. A below-average beer. Not hard to drink but not exceptional in any way, and I'm not a fan of the mouthfeel.

Poured from a standard pressure-cap 12oz bottle into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Two-finger mocha head with pretty long retention. Nice sticky lacing. Mahogany colored body with little clarity.

S- Nut brown aroma, slightly molasses smell as well. Nutty and sweet with a tiny bit of bitterness rolling later.

T- Roasty flavor. Nut brown and roast malts. Some chocolate and caramel. Not incredibly sweet.

M- Thick and nice roasted malt feel.

O- Ok beer, I like the roasty filling quality, but not the beer altogether.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

It's only fitting I be drinking this stuff here at Jon's. If only he were here... Anyway, this stuff pours a very dark sienna topped by a finger of glowing khaki foam. The nose comprises light cola, very light nuts, and a vague sense of toasted/roasted malts. Things sorta resemble old Coke that's been left out by a basket of peanuts. Something like that. The taste holds notes of light walnut, light dried maple syrup, mild toffee, and light toasted biscuit. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda watery feel. Overall, a weak little brown ale, one that just doesn't step up enough for me.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a very dark brown with deep ruby hues. There's an off-white head which fades pretty quickly, decent lacing and retention. The aromas are so faint and subtle. It doesn't smell bad, but it barely smells like anything. Tons of malt along with a touch of chocolate and caramel. The flavors are a little more bold, but nothing too impressive. There's a touch of maple. Subtle oak/wood flavors. More chocolate and caramel, but those flavors get lost in the big picture. There's a bitterness that lingers. Finishes dry. Mouthfeel is fine, maybe too much carbonation, but it's the least of my worries. It's still relatively smooth. But where's the nuttiness? You should really let this one warm up for the flavors and aromas to come to life.

I'm not too impressed with this one. I've always liked brown ales and I'm a sucker for "Nut Brown Ales", but this one just didn't do anything for me.
