When you first taste it it seems like you're in for something special, but it never gets any better. Keep thinking flavor is there underneath, but it never comes out. Kind of a weird aftertaste too. It's an average brown ale. Many other better version of a brown ale out there

1" beige head on a dark brown (with some red highlights) beer. Retains at a solid cap and leaves behind just a touch of lace.
Malt. Creamy chocolate. Nutty, earthy.
Flavor follows suit, nutty up front, chocolate. Some coffee notes. Earthy as well.
Creamy mouthfeel, medium to full bodied. Chalky feel. Lengthy nutty finish and a touch of lingering sweetness.
Nice brown ale, hits all the characteristics of the style.

Very little head even with a heavy pour, surprising for a nitro pour. Few spots for lace. The color is deep brown with light passing through the center of the glass easily.

The smell is more of cream than darker toasted malt. Light darker toffee nose.

Watery body with a low carbonation. The flavor is more sugary than the smell indicates. The toffee is the strongest flavor present but there's a light bitterness in the swallow.

Maybe my favorite brown ale of all time. Rich, thick, relatively dark and full for the style. Deep nutty caramel flavors, slight roast and just yummy without being cloying. Not without subtlety, however. Tasted on tap on the west coast.

Yum! Six pack from dry tavern. Just enough sweet and licorice to be a really good beer! I don't like overly sweet beers, and this one hits spot on for me. Hints of tobacco as well.

Pours out a deep brown with a tan head. Retention is minimal and not seeing any lacing.

Getting some light coffee with vanilla in the nose. Toasted bread as well. Fairly aromatic.

Plenty of toasted grains and light coffee in the taste. Still getting hints of vanilla. Its mildly sweet with very light if any bitterness. So simple yet some delicious.

The mouthfeel medium bodied. Its soft, smooth, lightly carbonated. Coats the palate nicely.

Solid brown ale. Mouth feel is a little on the light side. Could avoid the oatmeal flake. Great tobacco taste, but looking for a stronger coffee taste.
