Pours a deep dark reddish/brown that is close to black. Very small tan head but left good lacing when sipped. The aroma is of of nutty grains and chocolate. Very pleasing to the nose. The taste is the same and very pleasant with no bitter aftertaste. Perfect carbonation. Really liked this brew and the first I had from this brewery.

My 1000th had...never thought it would be on a low abv ordinary brown. .
My 1000th review will be better I hope

Poured from tap at sharkeys in Radford VA into pint. Deep brown but can see through it. Nice sweet malty aroma. Taste is chocolate and sweet malt...really nice. Hints of caramel and vanilla. Its so tasty...
Super smooth and a treat to drink. One of my favorite brown ales...a truly under appreciated style and beer. This one nails it.
