Handsome amber-brown color in the Ciney snifter. Lots of foam and lacing along the glass. Mouthfeel is appealingly sudsy while light and gulpable. Great aroma of chestnuts and spice cake.

The nutty roasted flavor is more robust than you usually get in these Brown Ales. Rather sweet, but it goes along with the warm malt and java taste. Some hoppy bitterness provides the balance along with a dark grainy flavor. A great example of the more mellow style of Brown Ale. Some butterscotch taste along with toasted filberts. Just a touch of bitter coffee.

Totally drinkable in a sweet and malty way. This is what a Brown Ale should be. From the 12 oz can purchased at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.

On tap at the Vine Street Pub. Dark brown, good head, served in a pint glass. Aroma was slightly malty. Flavor was a pretty good brown, malty, slightly rich, super easy to drink. I'm not a huge fan of browns but this one hit the spot. I'd probably order another on tap.
