Pours a deep tawny brown with a thinner light tan colored head atop.Caramel and brown sugar aromas with a light toasted bread note in there as well.A little sharp in the mouth,was hoping for more of a smoother feel.The feel detracts a little from the flavor profile,caramel and buttery toffee flavors with just a hint of earth/roast in the finish.Not bad but the feel kinda takes away from the beer for me. (406 characters)

Your standard brown ale. Not bad but nothing special. (53 characters)

A good, solid brown beer, nothing special, but well done for the type. (70 characters)

Draft at Hi-wire. Dark tea brown pour, half finger of cream colored head. Laces just a bit.

Aroma, some brown sugar, toasted malt. Hazelnut.

Taste, some malty tobacco and brown sugar again. Some tea and herbal notes. Seemed a little sweet a first but seems more balanced after it warmed a bit. Lingers nicely.

Drinks very easily, carbonation and body are about right.
Good stuff, hopefully this place will last a bit longer than Craggie. (448 characters)

Didn't care for the after taste at first, but the more I drank it wasn't as noticeable. An ok beer, but would not be my first choice. (133 characters)
