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.

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.

Pours a dark brown color, decent clarity, absolutely no head. Carbonation bubbles are noticeable. Smells of roasted, sweet malt. In the taste, there is a nice nutty maltyness. Well balanced, with a modest bitterness and little traces of hops. There are very pronounced roasted, caramel, brown sugar, nutty flavors. Pretty tasty. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. This is a good brew.

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.

Pours a deep amber to brown color with a small tan head. In the aroma, a small roast and somewhat fruity. In the taste, a caramel like roast and notes of fruitiness. A smooth and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small sticky sweet caramel in the aftertaste. A nice brown, nothing to jump over a fence about, but not bad either.
