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

On draft at the Westin hotel in Cleveland, Ohio. Go Cubs!

Dark brown body with hints of crimson. Plum and roast character throughout. Lightly sweet and quite drinkable. Nicely done.

12 oz can poured into a clear dixie cup.

A: Body is nice light caramel, brown, with decent clarity for the color of the body. Head is soap, chunky, and just slightly off white.

S: Roasted malts, honey, ground nuts, sweet grainy smell.

T: Lots of nuttiness, toffee, seet bread malts, and honey.

M: Light to medium mouth if not just a touch watery.

O: Really good beer here. Nothing crazy but the layered toffee over the honey is quite delicious and easy to drink.

Pours a rich mahogany with a tan head.

Smells of dark fruit, rich malt, bread, honey, and nuts.

A little spicy nutty hops up front moving forward to sweet malt middle with honey and oats. Finishes dry and rich like a good desert with notes of chocolate and oak. A very solid brown ale.

Drinks like more traditional brown ales. Super thin with a malty finish and a nutty flavor profile. I enjoyed it, but its not one I would seek out again.

A decent brown ale. Taste was good. Poured nice. Definitely has potential to be a "everyday" drinker style beer. Not too heavy, so nice to drink on a summer night, as well as during the fall.

Pours a dark caramel brown color. Aroma is a little sweet, toasty and nutty. Flavor follows the nose with roasted malts up front that have a little nuttiness. There's a bit of sweetness in the middle and some balance of hops in the finish. This drinks very easy and overall is one of the better brown ales I've had.

More of a chocolate richness than honey sweetness. Heavy malt.

Looks killer. Smells faint. Tastes bitter and chalky. Feels dry but solid. Overall = meh.
