Poured into a mug, the appearance was a deep dark ruby red almost brown color. Finger’s worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. The aroma had some soft sweet nuts, light chocolate brownie, black pepper and wood. The flavor leaned towards the sweet side at first and then brought in a nice bready sweetness to follow into the aftertaste. Slight bready to woody finish. The feel was about medium bodied with a nice semi-smooth dry glimmering feel. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, pretty nice brown ale, slightly different than what I’m used to. Worthy of more pours.

Looks- tan head.
Smell- like a nutty roasted caramel espresso.
Taste- that smacks your taste buds with pine, caramel, nutty, dark coffee'ish taste.
So not too much of a bitter brew fan, but i can say i enjoyed this brew, pretty smooth, definitely tickled my taste bud to something different. I tried this one cause i liked the kiwanda cream they make alongside this one.

Chestnut brown body with a quarter inch of soapy, beige head. Hops and floral scents with additional notes of cleaning solution. Pine notes with medium bitterness. A bit sharp on the palate. Caramel malt up front, finishing with an earthy hop bitterness.

Pours copper with a fading head.
Nose shows bready, toasty malt and some soft earthy coffee.
Similar flavours with hints of smoke amidst toasty and bready malt.

Dark amber brown with a thin foamy white head.

Floral hops and lightly sweet, nutty malts.

Tasty easy drinking brown ale.
