Reviewed 1/23/2015. Pokal goblet. Canned on date: 11-18-14.

Appearance: Pours a super dark brown with a tan, foamy cap. Remarkably dark, with a little light penetrating at the edges. No bad retention, but not great either. Some lacing.

Aroma: SWEET and roasty. Really inviting smell. A little two-dimensional.

Taste: Not as sweet as on the nose. Slightly tart across mid-palate. Firm roast, but not porter-esque. Right in the middle of the brown ale spectrum.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat light, good, but not overpowering carbonation.

Overall: A little simple; I want to like it more, but there's not a lot of oomph there. I'd buy it again for the sake of local pride, but it's not a favorite brown.

Can poured into pint glass. Dark caramel color, modest carbonation leading to a nice brown, one finger head. Subtle coffee, roasted malts and hops to nose. Medium feel on palate with nice balance of coffee, malts, chocolate against subtle toffee and honey. A very enjoyable beer

Jackie O's nails this brown ale, it hits the brown ale right in every direction not typically huge on brown ales this however is excellence in a can. Beautiful nearly black but it let's enough light to create a crimson mahogany, light tan head velvet textured fine even lacing. Aroma explodes when you open the can, toasted nuts with creamy chocolate notes, hint of honey and cereal grains it's good enough to put your nose in the glass. Flavor wise so smooth, perfect cohesion no clash of off flavors, this is complex brown ale at it's best with a nutty caramelized sugar from the toasted malts, the wildflower honey is full fermented out no residual sweetness you find in most honey beers, this is a flagship beer for a reason. It goes great with a Romeo y Julieta Reserva I'm smokin' adding cedar and spicy Republica de Domincana tobacco to the mix. I can't help but enjoy every sip, earthy hops finish the taste leaving a balanced brown ale on the table. Smooth even keeled carbonation cleanses the palate, medium bodied brown with enough abv too give it more complexity on the palate at 6.5%. Overall an anytime beer, that I'm proud to buy local in Steubenville Ohio at Valley Wine Cellar beer drinkers keep this stuff moving off the shelves maybe we will catch an expansion of their brewing operations to see some of their sours move into mainstream distribution, I'm still planning on a pilgrimage to the brewery maybe next weekend...there is a bottle release.

12 oz can served in a chalice.

Pours with a dark red-brown body topped by a small but durable head.

The aroma is rather rich and complex, with chocolate and fruit cake notes. The flavor is even richer, with dark fruits, some spicy hops and a load of roasted grains joining the dark chocolate. Mildly bitter finish, and never as sweet as expected from a brown ale brewed with honey.

Feel: medium body and carbonation; crisp with a slightly dry finish.

O: a flavorful and distinctive brown ale in a can. Recommended.

Beer #14 8/9/13

The color is dark brown with a red hue. The light tan head is sticky, creamy and foamy, leaving a strong lace on the glass.
The nose is mineral, a light metallic touch throughout. The taste is pretty much the same. Malts are solid, leaving hints of cocoa and light woody notes.
The feel is balanced in a medium body verging light as a tea-like note tames it down. It's got crispness and creaminess in moderation, a little thin and herbal in the end.
