Light brown, dark copper. Smell is faint chocolate. Taste is also chocolatey a little tinny but very good. I'd buy this again. Good fall time beer

looks like a brown ale. tastes like a brown ale. nothing about this is going to wow you. it's perhaps a bit thin, but that just makes it go down that much easier.

i've had this in bottles, 12oz cans, and now 16oz cans, and the bigger cans seem to be a bit better than i remember. a little more sweetness to the beer now.

Lost trouts pours a dark brown color with a small lacing head. Aroma is weak but hints of malt and hints of nuts. Taste is lighter, nice crisp malty backbone, with subtle hints of nuts, that finishes a little sweet. Watery body. Overall it s a solid beer, if only it was less watery.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 7/15/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate/coffee, herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate/coffee, herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nutty/chocolate/coffee, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/yeast ester flavors; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a damn nice American brown ale style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Thanks to GaryMuchow for this one. Poured from 12oz can into 10oz goblet. Poured a clean, clear medium brown color with about 1/3 inch of tan head that had good retention and light lacing.

The aroma had a very notable grain base, with just a light touch of roast, and an interesting tickle of hops in the background. The flavor profile was pretty similar, just amplified. The malts were nicely grainy, with just a touch of sweetness, and the hops added a different earthiness, without conflicting or dominating the malts.

The body was smooth, even, clean, and finished nicely dry, a rarity in the style. Drinkability was great. I could easily knock back a sixer of these, and would order it over the bar often during our typically wet PNW winters. Overall, a really well done example of a style that's being often ignored by a lot of my local/regional breweries. A must try if you see it.

It pours bright brown under a 3” light tan foam collar marks each drink. Rich malt and hop aromas, some light toast, hints of chocolate lead to a hoppy finish. Refreshing and drinkable.
