First had: on tap at Frog Level

I'm not a huge fan of brown ales, but this one was actually quite good, and possibly my favorite offering from the brewery.

Slightly hazy, medium brown pour, with a tan ringlet on top that retained well. Bready aroma, caramel malts, toasted grains, nutshells. Sweet caramel malts balanced out with a bit of roasty bitterness and some earthy hops, with a good nutty profile. Pretty standard stuff, but quite good and non-offensive. None of the off-flavors that usually keep me away from the style. Medium body, and easily drinkable. Overall very solid and enjoyable.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, brown color, with a filmy, slick, cream colored head. Nose of heavy roasted characteristics, nut sweetness, hints of chocolate and caramel. Flavors are roasted nut sweet forward, with grainy and bitter char highlights, chocolate notes, and a subtle hops bitterness at the end. Light and smooth, with a bittersweet aftertaste. The finish is light and smooth. Tasty, very drinkable beer.

Picked up a growler of this at Stella Brew recently. Worked out since my wife needed a Brown Ale for a recipe and I got to finish the rest on my own. Poured into a mug.

This is a really murky beer. Seems to be some light sediment resting on the bottom as well. Small cap of lace on top. Nice aroma of sweet bread, brown sugar, toasted nuts. Moderately smooth mouth with a touch of carbonation bite on the back end. The alcohol makes its presence known in the flavor to an unfortunate degree as it masks the nuttiness that I expected. Semi-sweet finish of sugar cookies, dark bread, and ethanol. Light nutty quality, but I'd like a bit more. Not bad. I'm interested in the other offerings from these guys. Stella carries about 4-5 of their others, so I'll be checking them out shortly.
