3.48/5  rDev -3.3%

Enjoyed at Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse.

This pint arrived at my table with a one finger head still in place. Eventually this broke down and was I left with some swirls of foam and a little lacing.

The smell was brown ale all the way...malts and nuts and coffee.

The taste is like the nose...with malts being at the fore. It is nicely balanced between sweet and bitter.

Mouth feel is medium with medium carbonation.

Overall not a bad pint to be enjoyed with some good BBQ on a Saturday afternoon. It would make an fairly decent session beer on a cool fall afternoon.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy brown color with amber highlights and a two-finger beige head.

Smell: When I think brown ale, this is pretty much exactly the aroma I envision - nuts, lightly toasted malts, a hint of caramel. Very nice.

Taste: Similar to the smell, but a little bit toned down. Toasted malts, nuts, caramel malt, just a touch of earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light-bodied with a medium-to-high carbonation level for the style. Comes off a tad bit watery.

Overall: This is a style I tend to overlook, so I'm glad I picked this beer up. Very good example of the style, although a little more body would have been ideal.
