Honey roasted peanut and fresh coffee aromas arise from the glass of this deliciously balanced brown ale. Dark Chocolate, hints of vanilla and nutty undertones are evident mid-pallet, while roasted coffee beans round out the finish.

They may have changed the recipe, but my glass off the tap smelled of vanilla and cinnamon; reminded my of apple pie. The flavored were subtle and delicious. Add to that it was a nitro tap, and was smooth, smooth, smooth. They set the bar high with this one; it's hard to beat!

I love a good brown ale and this is exactly that. Pours brown and smells exactly the way a brown ale should. Goes down very smooth.

Clear dark red-brown with a modest foam in the Duvel tulip. There's a faint whiff of vanilla and yesterday's coffee. Lots of burnt flavors and the faintest malty note.

This must be one of the driest American Browns I've ever tasted. It gets rather sharp as you sip. There is a slight nutty taste. Very spritzy on the tongue, and I don't mean that in a nice way. It's more of a flavored club soda.

Overall, this is plain and straightforward and austere. The bitter aftertaste leaves me wanting a beer chaser, of something else. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at the brewery taproom.

Dark murky cola-ish brown. More brown than cola though. A good finger of fine creme head.
Nose is sweet and nutty. Almost a tart note towards the end. Almost a touch creamy.
Flavour follows suit. Brown sugar and nuttiness. Maybe a hint of molasses as well. Creamy mouthfeel and an acrid bitter finish. Lingers
A bit bitter, but otherwise a really solid brown. James would be proud?

Just learned they won some gold medals for this one, I can see why. Absolutely delicious Brown!
