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.

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.

Bomber > 2X IPA Glass

A - Pours a rich creamy looking dark brown with nearly two fingers of tan head, nice medium tangents of lacing.
S - Wonderful aroma, a massive roasted and toasted grain and malt aroma, lots of hazelnut, some burnt hickory chips, oak, caramel, toffee, a little bit of alcohol, burnt dark chocolate, slight coffee roast.
T - Taste is nearly identical to the aroma, lots of toasted malts and caramel, a lot of burnt kind of aftertaste, rich coffee bean roasts as well.
M - This is what I like least, there is some alcohol burn to it, and its especially bitter for a brown ale, its definitely full.
O - This is an outstanding brown ale, the toasted traits in this shine for sure. Its just a bit too bold for my normal liking at 7.5%, but do not let that deter you, this is a real treat to have.

eyes...
a good ole fluffy 2 fingers if light tan foam, pretty much as dark as brown can get, light passing through certainly has its work cut out for it, thank goodness for GPS... the lacing is really nice leaving a historical record on the sides of the glass like some rock face in the great canyon or such, the head fades at a decent pace (kind of like my hairline) but never quite goes away, after all that verbosity this is simply a good looking brew.

nose...
strong sweet coffee flooded with some sweet ass molasses, cocoa powder, some kind of fall spice... nutmeg ? the aroma is strong and delicious

taste etc...
a nice medium thickness in the mouth, the flavors match the nose to a tee with a slight more emphasis on the lingering chocolate notes, there is some burnt flavor in there (if you like starbucks you would like this), the flavor is really full here, lots of bitter chocolate
notes, a good amount of sweetness, lingering notes all over the place.the carbonation is pretty slick, just enough to keep things going and it gets out of the way when the flavor train comes down the track.Each sip is an invite to the party, you just are compelled to have some more.

verdict?
delicious, wonderfully tasty beer, perfect for the season, not too heavy but with heft... not too boozy but has some punch. great brew. this brewery has certainly impressed me lately.
