It pours a cloudy dark brown with a good one inch foamy lumpy tan head. Foamy lacing is left around the sides of my nonic. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell has the toasted oats and walnut up front with an ever so faint sense of hops in the background. The taste has the previously stated elements and combines some nice caramel tones. The palate is about a medium, slightly dry and a bit watery, but a decent watery. Overall, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning when I saw the price, but am glad I bought it to try a style I’m used to and like from a company I’ve never had any of their stuff. I’d probably have this again

Beautiful looking brown ale. Ruby red brown in color. Clean, with fizzy head that dissipates quickly and no lacing. Smells of breaded malts. Taste is of biscuits, dark brown sugar, and malts. Smooth on the palate with some spice from the hops. Smells like it should and tastes like it should too. Very nice.
