look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light oak color with a full head. It fades to a nice cap with solid lacing. The smell is of hazelnut and toffee, though neither are overpowering.

The taste is interesting. It has all of those elements from the nose and all those you'd expect in a brown ale, but it's offset by a surprisingly creamy mouthfeel. I usually don't expect a ton out of brown ales, but this one offers a very interesting take on the style. Nicely done.
