What a pleasant surprise!

A: Thick creamy head with nice lacing.

S: A little mineral, a little chocolate.

T: Malt in the front, shivery soapy hops at the aftertaste. Quite a hoppy brown, really - but without screaming 'ZOMG 'Hopzorz!1!' at you. It's nicely balanced and not medicinal at all. The aftertaste IS a smidge medicinal though, an inevitable outcome of the hops.

MF: Round, not too prickly.

Serving type: on-tap

Sampled at the Distillery from the very first keg available to the public. Excited about this new brewery opening in my backyard!

Poured a dark brown with reddish highlights and a creamy ivory head that leaves nice lacing as it fades. Nice Brown Ale aromas of roasted nuts, chocolate, caramel, and some nicely bitter hops. Flavors follows the nose nicely, lots of expected Brown Ale flavors of chocolate, coffee, and roasted nuts but again the finish is a nicely bitter blend of espresso and resinous hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with a medium body and good carbonation. Overall a very solid Brown Ale, I'm gonna re-visit this many times!

12 ounce can canned in April 2013. Thanks Brandon!
Pours clear, deep reddish brown in color, with a small but durable tan head.

Aroma: a balanced and very appealing mix hops and malts.
The flavor leans more to the hoppy side, and is certainly a bit hoppy for style.
Medium body; crisp, medium+ carbonation.

Serving type: can
