Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a nice looking soft semi-dark murky brown color with a finger’s worth of a mocha colored head. Glistens nicely and falls off at a good pace. Light stringy lace. The aroma had some soft sweet to roasty nuts up front with a nice caramel/toffee malt base rolling into a subtle crisp sweet earthy blend, some grassy dryness. The flavor brought all of the previously mentioned aromas together riding on into the aftertaste and following through in the finish. The feel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionable quality about it. Light carbonation with the ABV feeling as projected by the brewer. Overall, I liked this brown ale, well worthy of having again.

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Hauppague, NY.

Poured a deep amber hue with a two finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft cocoa cut by a light herbal hop.

The taste consisted of a lightly sweet caramel malt, some light cocoa

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty easy drinking brown ale.
