12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy murky brown with an off-white head which fades and doesn't lave too much lacing and there's decent retention. There's alot of sediment/floaties. The aromas are very faint. Lots of caramel and chocolate malts. There's some raisins in the mix as well. The flavors are very grainy and has mineral like characteristics. There's a touch of maple and vanilla. There's a very subtle bitterness. The mouthfeel is on the heavier side of light-bodied. There's a high amount of carbonation, fizzy, but smooth. Alcohol goes unnoticed.
As a big brown ale fan, I can't say this one really grabbed my attention.

A - Pours reddish brown, tons of head, had to wait and pour this in three sessions to get all the beer out of the bottle. thick khaki colored head, lots of bubbles, thick lacing.
S - Aroma isnt too good here, you get some toasted nuttiness to it, and a little herbal scent, maybe the hops? But there's also a tad bit of spice, I can detect a little bit of cinnamon, maybe some honey or maple, but very faint, smells sweet.
T - Taste is very sweet at first as it would seem, then backs off. There's definitely some dark fruit in here, a little plum, then you get some pecan flavor, and more of that cinnamon. It gets a little floury in the end, with a touch of floral hop bitterness which is nice.
M - Still it has a good refreshing quality to it, but its a little on the drier side, even a little watery.
O - Not a bad brown by any means, just missing the mark. To me brown ales are best in fall, and it kinda makes you feel the season if you get me. But this one has off center traits that pull it away from being great.
