3.78/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
From a 12 oz bottle into a nonic.
A-The brew pours dark, walnut brown. Foam was pretty skimpy and dark khaki in color.
S-Milk chocolate smell up front with a little hit of roasted, nutty malts. As the brew warms, a little brown sugar creeps up. Not terribly fragrant.
T-Smooth, mild, chocolatey malts at first gulp. Then you get a little bit of caramel and nuttiness. The finish has just a little bit of hop kick. Very little bitterness.
M-Lighter bodied for the style with smooth, but noticeable carbonation. The finish is thin. This beer is quite drinkable.
O-There is nothing special about this brew, but it is a solid, drinkable example of the style. The chocolate smell and flavor are a little simple (as is the mouthfeel), but on a relaxing fall evening that calls for a few beers, you could do far worse than putting down a few of these.

4.4/5 rDev +12.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Mahogany body with a khaki head that retains ok but laces very well.
S/T - Robust chocolate up front. As it warms, more aromas and tastes such as brown sugar, coffee roast, some vanilla, nuttiness... hops kept to a minimum which works well.
M - Medium body, medium carb, very smooth and easy drinking.
O - Excellent example of the style and easy to drink. I'm getting this again.

3.83/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Pours a dark brown color with about a fingers worth of off white head, doesn't have much retention but leaves behind a nice lacing.
S: Malts, toffee and a subtle hint of hops, didn't detect anything else.
T: starts out with caramel upfront followed by chocolate and toffee finishes out with a nice touch of hops.
M: A light to medium body with a light amount of carbonation.
O: While it might not do anything amazing it is still quite a well brewed example of a brown ale.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery:
I've enjoyed this beer in a bottle and a can, as far as I can remember, and know it's good; the beer is a moderate brown, good hue but not too dark; quarter inch head; a lot of lacing, particularly from a brown; light ale on the nose; delicious light chocolate flavor; small hints of brown sugar; really good sessionable brown ales; in fact, one of the best I can remember
