So this thing looks awesome when you first pour it from a can into a pint glass, but slowly the head becomes nothingness over a sea of absolutely spectacular looking mahogany/orange colored beer. Its crystal clear, and has little plumes of co2 everywhere. Wish the head stuck around.
S- Almost a soda-poppy effervescence meets you, with a little nutty maltiness following suit.
T- Has a very clean and refreshing nutty malty taste just like the nose indicates but has a swing of DMS on the finish. Hmm. It was probably a warehouse storage misnomer that created that, because I've had this on draft and it was much better in the finish. That aside, clean beer and I won't knock it for DMS since it probably wasn't the brewery's fault.
M-Very light, crisp and highly carbonated.
D-I'd say this is an all around good beer minus the head and DMS. The mouthfeel could have been a little more firm, but at the same time this beer is only 5.1%abv. Oh well. Cheers, Big Sky!

Appearance-dark brown w/ slightly amber hue and very thin head.
Aroma- Malty sweetness, brown sugar, and caramel.
Taste- First sip is surprising with some citrus hop flavor that helps to lighten up the strong caramel malt. Citrus fades quickly and malt dominates with slight roast flavor and caramel/chocolate sweetness. Sweet, but not overly sweet.
Feel- Slightly sticky from the malt, but overall clean and very drinkable. Medium bodied, slightly thin.
Overall- Very well balanced brown ale with great malt flavor and interesting hop presence. Very drinkable and worth repurchasing for sure. Also perfect when paired with BBQ.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into shaker pint glass.

S: Sweet caramel malt and nutty.
T: Sweet caramel malt, toffee, nutty, and hints of raisin.
M: Smooth and oily feel. Light-medium body. Sweet with a mildly dry finish. Pleasant mouthfeel.
D: Not complex and won't knock your socks off. A solid session beer. Could definitely enjoy a few of these with friends.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 3/13/2014. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, chocolate, cocoa, toast, toffee, brown sugar, nuttiness, light roast, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, chocolate, cocoa, toast, toffee, brown sugar, nuttiness, light roast, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, chocolate, cocoa, toast, toffee, brown sugar, light nuttiness, light roast, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice brown ale. All around good robustness and balance of dark/roasted malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

On draft at Sanford's Pub and Grub in Cheyenne, WY.
The beer is dark chestnut with a thin beige collar. Malty aroma with notes of dark fruit, brown bread. Smooth and pretty light bodied on the palate. A mild sweetness throughout, finishing with a delicate hop note. Pretty good.
