Nose of malt, earthy, metallic, faint nuttiness, bready, burnt nuts, . Taste chocolate, hops, chalky, watery, roasted malt, pine, slight bitter finish. Not the best Brown!

From a single can into a shaker, pours a murky mahogany with a 2 finger tan head and modest lacing. Nose is very nice-- vanilla, bittersweet chocolate, and predominantly nutty malts...very faint promise of tangerine too. Taste is good, but less complex...lots of toasted nuts, quite a lot of sweetness with a hint of chocolate and a tiny hoppy edge that gives the mouthful a crisp feel. This one hits the spot on a cool fall night...quite pleasant.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, roasted malts. Taste is hops up front, nutty, malts at the finish, just a touch of chocolate. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Appearance: Pours from the can a mahogany-hued, near clear body with a smallish, off-white head.

Smell: Falls in-between toastiness and roastiness, a restrained dose of floral, citrusy hops.

Taste: Roasty, toasty malts with a hint of a charred grain element. A dusting of lightly sweetish cocoa powder. Minor caramel. Modestly estery. Floral, citrusy hops with a medium degree of bitterness. Soft finish with a drying maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not bad. A drinkable, run-of-the-mill brown ale.
