This was my first stop in my annual brewpub tour (really brew... anything) and a good choice in my opinion.
This start is quite lean and really just fills growlers and samples.
I bought a growler of thier pale stout, its so good. And a conversation point since it looks like a brown ale.
Pours pale in comparision to a stout, looks like a brown with it's clear brown clarity. Has a pretty dense tan head on top leaving some lacing.
Aroma finds a roasted malt bill with hints of cocoa powder.
Taste is quite good. has a good robust, roasted malt taste and a dark chocolate backing.
Smooth flowing on the palette with some bitterness lingering into a roasted chocolate aftertaste.
A very good beer in a style of beer not made since the days of yur.
interesting to gaze upon, smells good and taste good. An excellent beer.

I was happy to find this on-tap at Liberty St Tavern and ordered a couple pints at $5 each. This was a tasty, lighter-bodied brown with a bigger roasted edge over the coffee and cocoa. It's definitely a step down from an Irish dry stout, but more roasty than your average brown. The malt is very clean, with just enough bitterness to balance the barley and give a dry finish. It's a tasty, sessionable beer. Give it a try if you can find it.

Poured out as a deep reddish brown colo. The head was a light shade of tan. The retention is moderate and doesn't have much lacing. The smell of the beer gives off a faint aroma of chocolate and coffee. The taste gave off more coffee flavors with a subtle hippy bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied. Nicely carbonated and drinkable. Overall I was intrigued by the name more or less it's a Brown Ale. Pretty good though.
