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.

On tap at Pi Pizza. Served in a pint glass.
A decent beer for my pizza meal, but not one that I will keep around for some serious beer tasting enjoyment. Better than Avery Elle's Brown but not by much.
A – Poured a clear dark reddish brown, with a rocky beige one-finger head (always difficult to judge the head when you get a bar pour). Very good lacing.
S – A malty roastiness with a bit of floral hoppiness.
T - Roasted flavors with some malty sweetness. Maybe even some nuttiness but no bitterness associated with the roasted flavors found in a stout for example.
MF - Medium light bodied. Thin with a bit of creaminess (seems contradictory, I know).
