look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a tea brown color, a nice head, good retention and decent lacing

Smell: Brown bread, caramel, nuts and a hint of chocolate

Taste: The elements in the aroma appear on the palate, but there is a stronger sense of nuts and chocolate on the finish than I picked up when I smelled the beer

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I generally find brown ales pretty boring but the flavors here caught my attention; that's about as good as it gets with this style

Big caramel nose with a hint of chocolate
Pours slightly hazy medium brown under a thin off-white head.
The palate begins with mildly sweet light caramel flavors and then finishes dry with a touch of chocolate.
This is a refreshing medium body, medium to medium low carbonation session beer.

Nutty earthy taste. Maybe some caramel in there too. Dark brown color. Creamy white head. Ok beer. One of my least favorites from ale asylum.
