My son brought a growler of this delicious beer from his vacation in Ocean City MD. As a fan of brown ales I was seriously impressed with the quality. Pours a cloudy brown with a minimal head, little if any aroma, but the taste is outstanding. The bittersweet burnt caramel taste includes hints of roasted nuts and pecan pie. There is substantial vanilla in the finish that taunts the palate for another sip. No wonder this is their most popular brew.
