On tap at Swillburger/The Playhouse in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a golden dark brown color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like caramel and toasted bread with some nutty aromas.

This isn't super bold or interesting, but it definitely succeeds as a nut brown ale. There's a nice warm nuttiness, with some breadiness and slight caramel.

This is medium bodied, and pretty crisp, with a normal level of carbonation.

Decent stuff here.

A - Pours an amber brown color with a thin, cream colored lacing ring.

S - Herbally, nutty, earthy, malty aroma.

T - Nutty, medium roasted malt, toasted caramel flavor on the back end.

M - Medium body, sticky.

O - Not a lot of flavor going on. Uneventful.

Pours a light brown, settles in the glass a dark brown, that just barely lets light through. The offwhite head dissipated immediately.

The smell is very mild, almost no detectable notes, minor molasses.

The flavor is almost non existent, no bitterness, a minor nut flavor takes the after taste.

Very light bodied, thin, watery, but crisp and drinkable.

A middle of the road, but disappointing ale.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a glossy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than a minute. Lacing was moderately speckled and then slides a bit.
The smell has a blend of sweet nuts, roasty nuts, light about of coffee, dark fruits, a little bit of toffee and then caramel, all smells nice and authentic.
The taste was mostly sweet through previously mentioned flavors with the dry roasty malts enamoring my tongue. There's a lingering sweet dark fruity aftertaste that might actually overstay it's welcome just a hair, hmmm...and the finish, well, that's a bit better, semi-sweet and nutty.
The mouthfeel sits on about a light to medium body and enables a semi-chewy texture, kinda like chompin' on nuts and fruits. Oh no, not that again, wrong nuts, don't read into that you sick perverts.
Overall, anywho, yeah, for the most part, this was a good brown ale that in my opinion ends up leaning towards the English wheelhouse, was that intended or did I have this too old and the hops died off? Oh I dunno.

Caramel, toffee and some pine on the nose. Caramel malt, toffee and sweet hazelnut flavor with a distinct hop presence throughout. A solid American brown ale.
