look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Overall: This is a classic brown ale that is more winter than Autumn. In that way, this beer is deep rather than crisp like some brown ales, and rich rather than sweet like some brown ales. A brown ale to measure other brown ales by

A: a deep brown, cherry wood pour with a nice foamy head

S: Roasted malts with some sweetness and caramel

T: boozy, rich, with malty thickness and depth. Very smooth tasting - full of nutty, brown sugar, biscuit flavor with more than subtle chocolate and coffee on the finish. Very nice

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth and good for sipping

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: a little hazy; mahogany; tan head that faded quickly; left a rim of creamy bubbles around the edge of the glass; no lacing;

S: Roasted malts, a little cola, a little molasses

T: Hops come through in the taste; some nuttiness, a little malt sweetness; dry finish with a little bitterness;

M: Medium bodies; nicely carbonated; crisp

O: Well balanced; a really nice brown ale. One of my favorites.

Serving type: on-tap
