Pours a cloudy dark brown, with a small head that dissipated instantly. Grabbed this straight from the brewery garage from a growler straight into a tulip glass.

It was extremely fresh with a small amount of carbonation. Very drinkable with a toasted nut, caramel and light coffee flavor. The taste did not linger but the coffee essence continued throughout. This goes down way to fast and tastes too good! I could probably drink the whole growler (if I could stand-up). This could easily become one of my favorites, if the draft version at the local pubs tastes as good as this. (581 characters)

Appears a ruby bronw hue with a light tan head, leaves behind tiny flecks. Poured at Piper's Pub at the perfect serving temp. Aroma has roasted malts with floral herbal hop presence, but mainly a nice caramelized sugar in the base malt. So far, an excellent representative for new craft breweries in Western PA. Flavor brings out malts with caramelized sugars blended well with a roasted nut character and herbal hop notes that collide beautifully. Best brown ale I've had in quite sometime definitely a winner. Motuhfeel is medium bodied with even carbonation slick hop oils nothing cloying easy drinking Helltown ales. Overall the type of beer I could drink in number excellent brown ale from Mt. Pleasant, PA. (712 characters)

Draft poured into shaker pint


A: deep caramel color can almost see through it but not quite not much head


S: Sugary, sweet toffee a little nutty a little roast


M:  fairly thin pretty standard for a brown ale but this almost seems watery


O: while a solid beer and one you can sit and session it really isn't mind boggling either, you want something lighter but with a pleasant but forgettable taste grab one.  (418 characters)

Darker than expected, very dark red held up to a light.

Smells a little roasty, malty, nutty. Certainly seems that an English yeast was used.

Tastes of caramel, minimal coffee, slight sweetness.

Lighter on the carbonation side, very drinkable/session-able. Very smooth

For a brown ale this is very good, would buy again. (324 characters)

Finally got my hands on this brew. Rivertowne in Verona had this for a 3 dollar pour. Score!

A - What a nice shade of dark brown, a touch hazy. First pour resulted in no head but second had a nice creamy mocha colored one. As you swirled the glass carbonation is good enough to create one.

S - Slightly roasted nuts, mild bitter coffee's and sweet toffee or caramel in the nose.

T - Transitions the nose pretty well being more sweet than roasty. A nice blend of nuts, caramel, coffee, and overall brown malts make this a great brew.

M - Light to medium very drinkable.

Overall not sure of the ABV (see site) but this is a solid brown ale almost like Duck Rabbit's if not better. Creamy, nutty, sweet, and delicious. Couldn't get a better beer for 3 bucks. (760 characters)

Happy to see this newcomer on tap at House of 1000 Beers in New Kensington, PA.

Poured into a shaker: Deep brown, approaching black, with deep ruby edges. Thin wisp of head across the top. No lacing to speak of.

Smell is just what I'm looking for in a brown: nutty, caramel, malty sweet but restrained. Curls up in the nose, not strong but deep & satisfying.

Taste falls right in line with the nose: caramel, nuts, a little cocoa, slight dark fruitiness, & some lightly roasted coffee. There's a sharpness around the edges that's slightly tart & very good.

Mouthfeel is active, a little on the sharp side. Very reminiscent of cola at first.

Overall pretty impressive. Very drinkable American brown, not a style I'm a huge fan of but this did quite right by me. One of the better local offerings I've had lately. (816 characters)
