This six pack was purchased from the home of Big Sky Brewing and brought to me in California.
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Not much head but what there is is thick and wet with no lacing. It thinned out and covers most of the top of the beer. Very dark brown with only a little light getting through. Holding it up to the light, I see a dark brown/maroon color.
The smell is mellow. Just a faint scent of figs and dust.
As it hits my mouth, there are lots of very fine bubbles and tastes a bit bitter. It mellows quickly into a more typical brown ale flavor. Some mild malt and hops with nutmeg and a sweet woody flavor that I can't put my finger on.
I enjoy this beer and love having it on-hand. My preference is to have it on its own or with a snack food.

Reviewed at Johnson's Campground, St Mary, MT. Full notes taken to my phone.
A- Brown beer poured from a 12oz bottle to a goblet at glacier camping. Small light nutty tan head forms to one finger with fair retention. Small bubbly ring leaves rare spots of lace.
S- Nutty and deeply toasted malt aromas lead off the nose of the beer which is overall influenced mostly from the grains. Toffee, butter, brown sugar and caramel. Yeast gives some dark dry fruit and bready hints.
T- Yeast picks up a bit here with the dry spicy dark fruits like fig and raisin and some apple esters giving more influence. Malts still the key with toasted, nutty, cereal grain, caramel and dark sugar sweets. Ever so slight hint of roast.
MF- Medium thick body, maybe a tad toward the light side with a foamy texture. High end carbonation with a slight bitter finish.
Brown ale that is towards the drinkable side and reminds me of English style Browns with the body and toffee nutty flavor.
