This is from a growler that I purchased at the Gaslight Brewery. As I popped it open a lot of preasure and smoke poured out. I poured it into a thirty two ounce beer mug.

A dark cherry amber color in the beer. The head is a brown tan color that dissipates quickly.

Smells really sweet with oats and toffee aromas.

Very smooth body. Hardly any carbonation at all. It leaves the mouth a little dry. Leaves the lips very sticky.

The taste is pretty interesting in a good way. A lot of tastes merging together such as toffee, caramel, oats, roasted honey nut and dark malts. There's no bitterness to it, light in the hop department.

Drink Ability is good but catches up. Since it's smooth and tasty the desire for more is there but the belly is saying no.

Appearance-dark brown (obviously) in color, a decent foamy head slowly dissipitates and finally settles in a color of foam, decent clarity on the pint glass.

Smell-lots of dry hops, sweet chocolaty malts offset these, although it could be a little stronger keener detection shows these smells as they slowly build.

Taste-very dry, nutty as well from the malt with an hop profile revolving around it, despite this it actually finishes somewhat sweet.

Mouthfeel-no too thin, fairly adequete, dry nutty aftertaste that may bother some, the flavor is there though.

Drinkability-slightly dry for my tastes, but others may beg to differ, at any rate it would easily pass as a good session brown ale.

Overall-I enjoyed this brown ale, although I've found much better in my search (Troeg's Nut Brown Ale comes to mind) at any rate, fans of brown ale shouldn't be dissapointed, this is a finely crafted brown ale that is true to style and adequete, it just simply doesn't have anything about it that makes it truly exceptional.
