Style: American Brown Ale

Notes / Commercial Description:
An autumn brown ale with distinctive toasty flavors from an assortment of roasted malts and grains. As a seasonal, limited release beer, its nutty characteristics offer a great companion to colder climate cuisine. A bright hop finish from Cascade and Fuggles balance the toasted grain notes to create a new expression of autumn brown ales.

Brewed with Toasted Buckwheat, Maris Otter, Victory, Brown and Chocolate malts. Balanced with a bright hop finish from Fuggles and Cascade.

Lots of roast and very little else. Almost like a thin stout. Not my thing.

A: crystal clear; borwn with red accents clearly visible; with a relatively conservative pour, a 4 finger dark tan head that receded slowly to a thick cap; very nice lacing;

S: roasted grain; bittersweet chocolate; coffee;

T: bittersweet chocolate up front; roasted grains get added before mid-palate; finish is like mildly bitter coffee;

M: medium bodied; completely over carbonated; dry finish; hides the ABV well;

O: each of the 4 pours required to empty the bomber into a pint glass brought a new massive head - very over carbonated;

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a deep brown color with a finger’s worth of light off white foamy head that fell off at a good pace. Mild stringy lace. The aroma had some roasted nuts, light toast, cocoa powder, light earthiness. Some grassy hops. The flavor blended the sweet to the roast and followed into the aftertaste pretty nice. Quick malty and roasty finish. The feel was centered around a medium body with a fine sessionability about it. Gets somewhat creamy along my tongue. ABV might have been a bit high for the style but still gets it done just right - good job to the brewers. Overall, pretty well done brown ale worthy of having again.
