Pours a dark copper color with a khaki head. Smell is nutty with toffee malts. Taste follows nose very nutty with floral hops and a candi sugar taste . Mouth feel was sweet with malts had some roasted notes in finish. This brown had notes of a scotch ale and a stout, it was something i like alot actually.

Another new brewer (to me) and a pretty solid offering I have come across...

Though not necessarily a great beer, it was decent enough to enjoy a few on a hot, summer Florida's day. I liked the practically stout-like look of the beer with a decent head and some light lacing down the glass. The smell was a nutty and malty mixture with a distant, bready hint. I found the brew to be light- to medium-bodied with a slight crispness to its finish along the tongue, though it did hint to a wateriness that troubled me. Anyway, the brew was malty as advertised, slightly sweet, with a non-descript finish that makes it an also-ran in my book. In the end, it was solid enough that I won't think too much of the other six I have to partake from (and even share).
