12-oz. can (11/13/18) poured strongly into a 16-oz mug yields a 1/2 finger of tan short lived froth with spotty lacing. Translucent, slightly hazy chestnut brown with red highlights, appears old copper penny color in front of light.
Smells of caramel and roasted malt, a little bread and yeast with very faint hops.
Taste begins semi-sweet and lightly bitter with the malt standing out. The middle features faint coffee, chocolate and roasted pecans. The finish is quick, neutral and slightly bitter with hops at their most noticeable level, still on the low side. A mineral aftertaste lingers.
Light body (a little watery) with low carbonation, soft and smooth feel.
True to style and enjoyable, could use a little more malt to the backbone.

Had on tap. Poured clear brown with ring of white foam. Smell was brown sugar, toffee, roasted nuts and vanilla. Taste had light breadiness to the base, plus a smattering of toffee encrusted nuts. Little of the sweeter end of brown ales, but delicious. Great mouthfeel, medium bodied with bready smoothness and a touch of cloying sweetness.

Looks and smells great. But it lacks any real flavor. Very light and highly carbonated for a brown ale.

Poured from 12oz can into glass. Stamped on can bottom is canning date of '08.15.2017'.
Clear, brown colored body. Hard pour produced a one finger bubbly head which quickly subsides to creamy cap, beige in color. Strings and spots of lacing left behind.
Aroma is subdued, smells of bready malt, caramel, chocolate, and vanilla.
Taste is roasted darks malts without bitterness but rather with a little sweetness, with a little dark fruits and chocolate coming in late. Slight vanilla tops it off. There is a little chocolate wafting about with a whiff of coffee. Pleasant to roll around in the mouth.
Medium mouth feel with good carbonation.
This is a solid brown ale with a roll call of attractive smells and tastes. I would buy again.

Tap pour with light tan head and dark brown semi-opaque body. Minimal thin lacing. Sweet bread nose, more caramel in the flavor. Feel is light. Decent.

got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 8/12/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/brown color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, and dark fruit; with lighter notes of toffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. A bit too fruity/yeasty, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/light roast malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, and nuttiness; with lighter notes of toffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark fruit, herbal, grass, and roast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal/grassy/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, milk chocolate, cocoa, herbal, grass, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roast malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/roast bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 5.5%. Overall this is a very good English brown ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roast malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very rich well rounded English malt complexity; mild fruity yeast and earthy hop balance. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

On draft. Served in a pint glass. Pours a darker brown body, one finger white head with no retention, no lacing. Smell is a bit of nutty brown, slight boozy heat, not much else behind it. Weird. Flavour is fairly bland, slight nuttiness, a bit of caramel sweetness, slight boozy heat. Not much on the backend, though certainly not terrible. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, watery on the backend, though appropriately carbonated.

I tried this at Cliffhouse in LaQuinta....it poured a deep rich brownish amber with creamy off white head that left a nice ring lace. The scent had hints of malt. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with hints of sweet bread. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a very good beer.

Appearance; dark amber in color with 1 fluffy 2" head that slowly falls. Some lace develops.

Smell: light bread and nutty aroma.

Taste: bread, toasted nuts, some chocolate, and a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp to start, smoother and a touch dry at the finish.

Overall: an easy to drink brown ale.

Pours a chestnut brown color with hints of red, and a 2 finger head that rapidly diminishes to 1/2 finger.

Aromas of stale milk chocolate, raw nuts, cacao, and earth.

Flavors are of cocoa, pumpernickel, earth, slight metal, woody walnut, and a faint suggestion of malted milk balls.

Feel is carbonated, slightly chalky, light-plus bodied, with a dry finish.

Overall, this beer isn't up to par with the rest of their line, but I still think it's a decent beer. $7.99/6 pack was an insane deal for the islands, I couldn't not get it. Now I just gotta drink the rest before I head back eventually.
