an incredible brown ale here, my first from these guys, and a beer that is amazingly unique, i wish the label told us more about whats in it. i find it hard to believe its just a straight up brown ale, there is some curious addition to this, maybe a wine grape, maybe even the grape leaf, it has that almost medicinal botanical nature to it for a flash, but also some fruitiness in the malt. no chocolate at all, its not that kind of brown ale, and almost tastes like an oud bruin without the sourness. this has a little bit of wild character to it, rustic, but more interesting yeast than funky stuff, possibly wood aged, its just a very mature beer. light in color and body and carbonation, but all of that seems to add to its intrigue for me. really old worldy stuff and super high quality, i love the unique yeast strain and the complexity it adds. raisin, red wine, black tea, and and burlap sort of earthiness. bone dry to finish, but still with a fruity ending note, its got a ton going on, but drinks easy. reminds me of some of the non sour italian stuff. cant wait to try more beers from these guys, this was super impressive for a brewery i had not heard. super different, i loved it.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a very, very dark brownish hue that was hazy enough to prevent seeing through. Good thick, creamy light brown head caps this beer and fades to leave a thin blanket.

S - Aroma is quite nutty, good dark malts, some earthy notes, super super faint hops, and maybe a touch of bitter coffee on the finish.

T - Taste is similar to the nose just with a touch more of the burnt malts on it. Definitely finding coffee here balanced nicely by that rich, darker malt character and faint nutty flavour.

M - Mouthfeel is a hair to carbonated for my liking, still though, keeps it nice and light.

O - Overall, a solid brown ale offering that I see on the shelves regularly in my area.

SMELL: Immediate bright, sweet white raisins with a deeper chord of caramel-y booziness. Has the nature of decadent baked goods. Toasted barley and acidic coffee and sweet toffee. Somewhat mild in potency, but noticeably unique and pleasant. Smells very similar to a stout.

TASTE: Dry and tempered, the flavors roll larger later on until they wash down your throat. Extremely drinkable. Starts a bit clear and watery upfront, but then a stout like bitter sweetness swells up and just as quickly dimishes leaving you ready to sip again. Eminately quaffable though perhaps too light on flavor. Mostly grain flavors, some plum, and mild sugar sweetness at the end. Really, fairly straightforward and clean. Reminds me of German styles.

Pleasant if you're in the mood for an easy-to-drink darker beer, but not special enough to warrant much effort.

Reviewed from tasting notes.

Pours out a deep brown with a bit of a flash head that leaves no lacing behind.

Smells and tastes like a blend of chestnuts, hazelnuts, roasted and toasted malts, a touch of cereal graininess and a light garnish of herbal tea with a touch of mineral sharpness at the finish.

Texturally is where this brew really shines. Lusciously smooth, silken, and creamy for a 5% brew.

Pours a light brown, some red highlights, good cap of off-white froth, gone quickly. Whiffs of lightly burnt caramel, roasted nuts, crusty dark bread. Taste brings these basic brown ale components along. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. While i keep seeing how basic and straightforward this brown ale is, i like it more as each sip goes on because sometimes you just want something solid and not overly complex.

A: Pours an extremely dark brown in color with some light garnet red notes at the edge of the glass when held up to the light. The beer has a three finger tall dense light tan head that reduces to about a finger tall head evenly covering the entire beer. Excellent head retention properties are observed. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly astringent (perhaps light alcohol presence) along with moderate notes of nuttiness and some caramel malt sweetness.

T: Toasted malts with some light amounts of caramel malt sweetness. Lighter hints of coffee bitterness (possibly from the dark grains) along with chestnut and some sharp earthy hops. Very light hints of burnt malts.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodide with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Very interesting and enjoyable but a little too intense to be an easy drinking beer. I enjoyed the different bitter notes but it took quite a while to sip this glass.
