Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: PeterIngemi on 11-11-2012

An autumn brown ale with distinctive toasty flavors from an assortment of roasted malts and grains. As a seasonal, limited release beer, its nutty characteristics offer a great companion to colder climate cuisine. A bright hop finish from Cascade and Fuggles balance the toasted grain notes to create a new expression of autumn brown ales.

Brewed with Toasted Buckwheat, Maris Otter, Victory, Brown and Chocolate malts. Balanced with a bright hop finish from Fuggles and Cascade.

Poured into a snifter. The beer was a very dark brown color; looked more like a porter or stout than most brown ales I've encountered. The head was small, but lingering and left a cola-colored lacing on the glass as I drank. The smell was pungent roastiness, with a touch of booziness. Slightly chocolatey. As it warmed up a little bit, the smell got even more potent, and the taste became slightly more pronounced too, as it tasted a little boozy to start out the fridge. Overall, the taste got stronger and eventually produced strong, burnt-grain and roasted-nut flavors. A more powerful version of the traditional autumnal brown ales, bordering on stout/porter territory. I'd drink it again, and let it warm for ten minutes out of the fridge next time. It was tasty and satisfying.

This is the most porter-like brown ale I've ever had. Pretty tasty stuff. Do not make the mistake of drinking this at fridge temp, it wants to be at least 10 degrees warmer than that to allow the roast, toasted nut and bitter chocolate notes to open up.

Appearance: A lot of tan foam builds up in the glass, almost too much, and it takes some time for the cola brown liquid to build; the flip side is that there is a ton of lacing around the side of the glass

Smell: Very roasty, with walnut, chocolate and woody tones

Taste: Roast and chocolate, up front, with walnuts, hazelnuts and bitter nut skin tones building; more chocolate appears in the mid-palate with the finish bringing both earthy hops and a touch of sweetness that lingers on the palate

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Not bad for a brown ale but I am not a fan of the style

Thanks, Ljudsignal, for the opportunity

Great, toasty brew. More choclatey stout than brown ale, but terms aside, great. Pairs beautifully with Indian.

Lots of roast and very little else. Almost like a thin stout. Not my thing.

On-tap 10/30/2014 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains roasted malts, coffee, maple and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a hearty roasted malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of maple, coffee and chocolate come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium-to-heavy body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

Served in a pint glass at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger off white brown head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Nutty, toasted, roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, bready, and a little sweetness.

Taste: Same as above with some burnt flavors and bbitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little bitterness, medium bodied, low carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: Spot on for the style. I like it a lot. Will be enjoying more of these in the future.
