Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: A deep mahogany body that's more ruby colored against the light. The head is foamy, cream colored, and recedes very slowly. Nice sheets of lacing coat the glass.

Aroma: Chocolate, toasted bread and Tootsie Roll.

Taste: A mostly malty affair up front with the likes of chocolate, nuts, and some breadiness. On the back end it gets a little more bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and slightly dry.

Overall: A very flavorful brown ale, no complaints at all.

"Hints of rye, roast and raisin join a subtle caramel sweetness before a clean finish. Pairings: roasted meats, dried fruits, gruyere & smoked cheeses." Brewed in the style of an American Brown Ale, available as a winter seasonal in 12 oz. 6 packs and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a New Holland tulip glass. Served above 51 degrees fahrenheit.

Pours a tan white head of a frothy cream consistency over a light cola brown with plentiful assertive carbonation and flecked sediment. The aroma is a blend of bready caramel and moderately roasted barley with undertones of chocolate malt, lactose and raisin. The flavor shares some similarities, with a more pronounced acidic fruitiness, a moderate roasted grain, a pinch of black patent roast and a lesser sweetness. The texture is slick, chewy with a moderate dryness, carbonation is moderate and slightly frothy for a subtly creamy mouthfeel. Balance is slightly roasty and acidic fruity over sweet. Body is medium for the style, medium+ overall. The alcohol presence is mild, off characters are minimal. Overall it's a lighter bodied brown ale with a nice raisin fruitiness and moderate roast to it, nice and drinkable.
