look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Had this on 2012-06-18 at the brew pub in Olmstead, OH (from tasting notes)

A - Mostly spaque dark brown with a 1/2-finger tan head and good lacing.

S - Pretty mild caramel. Touch of hop floral. Sweet. (food odors are present)

T - Nice roasted grain and chocolate with good citrus bitterness. No coffee. Tastes good.

M - Light-medium body and high carbonation Crisp and refreshing.

O - Nice when you want a lighter brown that still has a lot of flavor. Similar to the TBA collaboration.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a dark brown color with a light off white head and rings of lacing. Aroma is very piney and lightly toasty. In the taste, toasty malts and pine. Pineapple, sap, melon, brown sugar and caramel. Medium bitterness and finishes clean with a small herbal hop bite. Medium bodied and more or less easy drinking. Overall, this is a solid brown ale. Does the job.

Enjoyed this on tap at Fat’s head.

A: Pours a deep reddish-brown hue with a thin 1-finger tan head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Toasted malt aroma with caramel and chocolate in the background.

T: Flavors similar to the smell as toasted malts, caramel, and chocolate cross the palate with a slightly hoppy flavor.

M: Medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: This is a really good Brown ale – comes in at a strong 7.3% abv yet it was masked nicely by the malts and hops.
