Enjoyed in sample size at the brewery in Berlin, MD. Roasty nose up front with some sweetness. This comes through in the taste as well. Balanced by the earthy flavors in the hops, the overall taste is a drinkable brown ale that doesn't tip the scales in over bitterness from the hops or sweetness from the malt. Very good beer.

It was pretty dark at Burley Oak, but from what I could see, this beer was a rich, dark brown. Smells very roasty and nutty. Tastes strong, very bitter and extremely nutty; it caught me off-guard by how much hoppiness it has. This isn't the most "drinkable" beer and I don't think it's even trying to be. It's something that you're supposed to nurse slowly as it warms up. It filled me up so much I didn't even get a pint of anything else.

Time to put your big boy pants on. Don't like heavy use of bittering hops in your brown ale? Keep walking, kid. If the idea of strident hop bitterness intersecting with all the flavors the make brown ales special appeals to you, this nutty, creamy little fella is for you. If the words triple ipa make you gag, save your duckets.

Great beer from a great brewery. Nice people and even nicer beers. I like the cleverness of their beer names.

This beer is porter like feel with hop bitterness on the back end. Pour is very dark with little head. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. The malts stay with you. Aroma has hints of chocolate and coffee. I'm a fan. Grabbed a growler on the way out.

Keep up the good work guys.
