Poured on-tap at the brewery into a pint glass. The bartender was able to provide most of the information about the beer itself. He stated that this was somewhat of a "trial brewing" into the realms of Brown Ales for the brewery. The beer poured with a moderately opaque brown color, much lighter than most Brown Ales we are used to. This would be a continuing trend. There was a very light, filmy head with gave through the aromas of nut. The beer has a chocolate/nut flavor, almost mocha/hazelnut. It was hard to say which exactly, as the taste seemed to blend back and forth between the two. The beer has a malty aftertaste, and is extremely light in mouth for a brown. The beer also has a somewhat bitter aftertaste, which is confusing with all of the sweet smells and flavors. The beer was very interesting, but not one I would go back to the well for on any frequent basis. With a little bit of tweaking, this could become a decent Brown for the brewery.

This is a brown?? Pours, smells, tastes and feels like a porter. Last of a flight at the brewery.
Appearance - Little head, small lacing. Dark, but still opaque on color.
Aroma - Nose is full of nuttiness. Some hops in there too.
Taste - Chocolate taste, with an almond flavor.
Feel - Easy mouth feel. Malty and a little heavy.
Finish - Interesting finish. Tart at first, then sweet and buttery.

Overall, a good brew. Just don't think its a brown.

This is my first BA review. Not enough room on untappd comments. Let me know how I'm doing...
