Poured into Sam Adams glass and developed a great full tan head which lasted and laced well. Appearance was a clear dark / caramel amber with a sweet, malty aroma with hints of caramel. Taste was a full bodied and malty with nice caramel and toffee notes. Mouthfeel was full and creamy with a mild, lingering, caramel, toffee aftertaste.

12oz bottle

A- Pours a dark reddish brown color with a large light tan colored head with good retention and lacing.

S- The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, toffee and sweetened cocoa.

T- The taste like the aroma has a lot of malty sweetness up front with a dark bready finish.

M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, this beer is pretty solid for what it is. It is an easy drinking brown ale that I could put back a few with ease.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. has a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of hops. Taste is light hops, a bit of nuts,a touch of malts, easy drinking and refreshing. Feels light in the mouth and overall this is a decent beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours brown with a red hue and tan head that is gone in a mini second to a thin, spotty lace skim.
Aroma: Major bread and roasty malts with notes of sweet molasses, raisins and nuts.

Taste: Sweet, syrupy with caramel and molasses and toffee.
Mouthfeell: Thin, most of the aromas seem watered down.

Decent beer, but as craft beers go this one is a bit short, and acts more like a better than average macro. Just not a solid craft brew.

Poured from an undated 12 oz bottle (out of Rochester NY) into a Unibroue goblet.
A: Dark reddish-brown color; clear; small and mostly short-lived tan head; good lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malts. quite sweet but otherwise rather faint. Hints of hazelnuts and toffee.
T: Not a lot of flavor. Malty and sweet, but an acceptable level of sweetness that is much lower than suggested by the nose. Decently nutty.
M: Moderate to high carbonation: body is a bit thin for the style. Mild harshness.
O: Rather average if light; improves substantially with warming.
