Pours a nice ruby-brown, with a thick and sudsy head of off-white bubbles. Lace is detailed and lovely, too.

Aroma is chocolate malts up front, with a little woodsy spice (cedary, almost). But it's the chocolate that gets me front and center. Excellent!

Taste is deliciously malty chocolate and a hint of bittering hops at the finish. It's like a rich bittersweet cocoa tone. I also get a touch of a slight burnt flavor, as well as the wood hinted at in the aroma. All-in-all, a distinctively complex, flavorful, and an excellent (even noteworthy) brown ale. (564 characters)

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Slight toasted malt aroma, with a floral backdrop
Appearance- Pours a nice brown color with amber streaks. Has a nice thick off-white colored head.
Taste- Has a malt and nut flavor, I am not floored by the flavor. It is OK
Palate- A heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- A slightly better than average beer. (378 characters)

Enjoyed this fine brown from a 12 oz bottle in a pint glass. This brown ale pours a brilliant lightly hazy copper brown color with a firm light tan head that dissipates to pooling foam and GREAT lacing. Nose of chocolate malts, caramel malts, bread crust, and light herbal hop notes. Flavors are light chocolate malts to the front, sweet caramel malts to the sides and back, and a light bittering hop to the rear. Smooth lightly coating mouth feel leaves a light coating on the tongue of bready moderately roasted malts and grains and a light bittering hops aftertaste mingling with sweet malts. Very nice offering for this often overlooked and snubbed style of ale. Would make a great session ale as well. Looking forward to trying other brews from the brewer. (768 characters)
