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.

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

Clear, deep brown with a fluffy light brown cap. Good head retention, sticky lacing. Malty aroma, lots of roast and toffee, slight chocolate and burnt notes, faint hops -- very nice. Similar character in the flavour, but with moderate bitterness and slight tartness in the finish. Mild citrus was prominent up front and also lingered in the finish, earthy and slightly sweet overall. A bit of astringency was present, medium bodied, medium/low carbonation, decent texture. A good brown, quite enjoyable.

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.

Near black color with just a touch of light on the extreme edge of the glass. Superb ring lace with a blanket of bubbles in between. Small but lasting head.

Lots of burnt black patent malt to the nose.

Blind folded, I would think stout here. Lots burnt toast up front. The swallow is slightly creamy. The aftertaste is similar to burnt toast. The body is below average, but the carbonation is low.

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
