First had: on tap at their brewpub
Poured a rusty brown with a nice frothy white head that left some beautiful, thick lacing. Aroma was nutty and sweet with caramel and chocolate. More of the same in the taste: nutty, sweet, Caramello-y, and a mild earthiness from a light hoppage. Medium-bodied, smooth, and quite good.
Serving type: on-tap

The body appears tobacco juice brown and features a thin yet sticky light tan head. Nuts and roasted malt grain aroma. The taste sports a malty sweetness offset with a somewhat bitter and slightly acrid flavor at the finish. Medium bodied; smooth and semi-dry finish.
This brown ale appears to have roots in within a traditional, malt-forward type of ale. The malt sugars are the key: rich, slightly charred in flavor and aftertaste, and with the hops providing a low-key bitterness to nicely complement the sugary sweetness. Robust and delicious.
Serving type: can
