Translucent, chocolate color with descent head on the pour. Fairly weak retention but followed by some lacing on the glass. Non-specific grainy aroma. Flavor of wheat bread, maple sweetness, dark fruits, earthy hops with descent balance. Medium bodied and well carbonated, smooth feel with some grainy texture. Descent brown ale. Par for the course.

Great brown ale that is very tasty. Aroma has dark chocolate and coffee notes that are something less common in the beers i tend to drink. The caramel malts are very noticeable on the first few tastes of beer. The creamy mouthfeel will coat your tongue. very long after taste that is balanced and pleasant. The brown ale is best served with heavier foods.s

Served on tap in a 16oz beer glass. Great brown ale very tasty. Aroma in wonderful with deep, rich dark chocolate and coffee notes. Dark brown color with dark tan frothy head. Caramel malts come shining through on the first taste. Creamy, full mouthfeel that coats the tongue. The beer has a lasting sweet, balanced flavor that is very pleasant. The brown le is great enjoyed with red meats and heavier foods.

12oz bottle poured into snifter.

This beer pours dark brown with small light tan head. Darker than a lot of brown ales I've seen lately. Strong roasted aroma, with lots of caramel in there too. Smell almost reminds of peanut butter cookies.

That roasted aroma follows in the tase. Roasted walnut comes to mind. A good amount of sweetness in the taste as well. There's lots of carbonation in feel and it also leaves your mouth very dry. Overall feel is light and this can be drunk all night all.

This is one of my favorite brown ales available. It's more of a winter brown with the roasted notes, but it can be enjoyed in the summer too. I would drink it on hot days but warm nights by the fire are perfect.
