Best damn brown I've had in a while. Pours out a nice translucent, reddish brown with a tan head. Smells nice and roasty with a touch of hoppiness underneath. Strong flavors of roasted coffee which is backed by a slight baked biscuit. Finishes with a touch of dark bitter chocolate, maybe some dark, dried fruit as well? Overall this beer has some great strong flavors while still being very sessionable. Damn good beer!

Slightly hazy chestnut brown with ruby highlights and a modest tan head that subsides quickly leaving only traces of lacing.

The aroma is caramel malt with hints of chocolate and pine.

The taste is in line with the aroma, mildly sweet caramel, a bit of chocolate, a touch of citrus and a pine resin hop finish.

Light/medium bodied, fairly smooth and very drinkable.

Altogether a decent and enjoyable brown ale.

Pours a clear milk chocolate brown. Nice looking tan colored head of about 1.5 fingers. Head recedes quickly with minimal lacing left behind.

Aroma is chocolate and lightly roasted malt. A bit of nuttiness and caramel. Some coffee.

Taste is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and toffee. All flavors are relatively mild. A bit of sweetness from the chocolate which is balanced by slight bitterness from the coffee.

This is not a very thick beer. Medium carbonation. Low ABV at 5.4% and no hint of the alcohol.

This is a good clean example of a Brown Ale. Very easy drinking and has nice balanced flavors that don't overwhelm.

Beautiful semi-opaque brown color with a small tan head of foam. It has a nice roasted aroma with a hint of bread. It has a mild bitter bite to go with sweet caramel and toffee flavors.
