Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #40 (May 2010):

Lacing beautifully tops the reddish brown beer, inviting you as it displays its clarity. Toasted bread hints toward a mild roasted aroma in the nose, even mild chocolate, perhaps? Flavors jump from caramel to chicory, to toasted grain. Hops dig in a little bit with a citric twang and a mellow spicy bitterness that seems to grow with every sip. A hint of fruit and a kiss of alcohol rest in the middle of the palate. Toasty flavors leave a long trail of flavor in the semidry after taste.

A big Brown Ale that keeps to the lighter toasted and slightly roasted malt spectrum. Very pleased to run into this beer, as there are not enough Brown Ales to be had nor great versions like this one.

3.78/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Cloudy chestnut with lumpy whipped cream tan head.
Flinty grain nose with peanut and chocolate.
Nutty granary loaf with some definite malt tartness, slight earth, and orange bark hops.
Do-si-dos finish and lean linger.
Light to medium, slight cling, smooth.

Chocolate-covered peanuts! An easy brown that never thinks of being an IBA. Silky body is the best feature here, if a touch lightweight for the strength.

A bit plain, but can't find any flaws.
