Great smell and look to this beer. Not really a brown ale guy, so don't necessarily love the taste. But certainly better than some that I've had.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
A: Pours clear dark brown with a small tan head that soon reduces to a partial coat.

The aroma is a bit weak and earthy for style. A suggestion of an offensive musty component seems to come and go.

The flavor is better. It seems like an average brown ale until the finish and aftertaste where a more generous portion of hops becomes evident.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/5 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight yeast, hint of hop, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American Brown Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, yeast, slight roasted malt, hint of hop, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, weak appearance, but otherwise average beer.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Shaker pint glass. No freshness date. Received as a gift from good friend Erinn.

A: Opaque dark brown with 1/2 finger of beige head with average retention and some spare lacing.

S: Chocolate with some dark maltiness and a dash of coffee with herbal hopping.

T: Solid flavor for the style with toffee, caramel, milk chocolate, and black coffee with subtle herbal hops bittering. Bitterness is low-medium.

M: Medium bodied with higher than desired carbonation which detracts somewhat from what could be a creamier feel.

O: A pretty run of the mill brown ale.

Nice aroma and sweet malty flavor. Nothing exceptional going on here but a decent brown.
