Poured into a mug, the appearance was a brown color with a lasting finger’s worth of white foamy head. Sly lace. The aroma had a robust nutty maltiness. Light rye malt, then roast, subtle raisin all blend nicely. The flavor brings together the previously mentioned aromas adding a touch of biscuits and caramel malts. Warming malty aftertaste rolling into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body, almost closer to medium. Somewhat sessionable. Good carbonation. ABV felt fine as projected. Overall, nicely done brown ale that I could have again.

Appearance: Deep brown amber, with a a fair head of fine tan suds. Little lace.

Aroma: Roasty malts, coffee, cocoa. Very traditional and more than pleasing to the olfactories.

Taste: Rich and roasty with some sweet but nicely balanced malts and bitter hops at the finish. Nutty, chocolatey, and wonderful. Bottle may be 6 months old, but this one held up well. Wonderful brown ale.

This is my new favorite brown ale. As far as I'm concerned, this is the standard against I judge others. Sweet, malty. Not much hops, which I like.

Had this from tap while at a college hockey tournament at Joe Louis Arena, the Great Lakes Invitational. Because of the location, it was poured into a plastic cup. Despite this, it held its head well and had great lacing. It has rye bread smell with a strong toasted malt taste, and a it of chocolate. It went great with Tim Horton's Polish sausage

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Murky brown color.

Tan head; spotty lace.

Nuts & chocolate in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Flavor follows nose, but this is a touch cloying. Not bad but not great.

Dark, almost porter-like dark. Tall tan head that recedes slowly. Lightly carbonated. Nice nutty aroma with hints of chocolate. Smooth mouth feel, not thin. Mild initial taste that follows the aroma, with a chocolaty taste transitioning to some bittering in the middle and finish.

From the 12 fl. oz.. bottle that was filled on 10/11/16. Sampled on December 12, 2016 so a tick over two months old.

The pour is a nice looking mahogany brown, slightly foggy, with reddish hues on the glass's edges and a long lasting, soft tan head.

Medium body mostly.

The taste is quite sweet and malty with maybe a touch of nuts behind ti - but mainly sweet. Low bitterness does not make this stand out. But as far as the style goes - it is on target with nothing more or nothing less.
