Growler from brewery at Granby, CT location in June 2008. Drank this one on a warm summer night.

Dark brown pour with minimal head. No lacing. Aromas of nuts, roasted malt and bread. Taste was an unoffensive, quaffable, malty ever-so slighty sweet glug. However, it finishes a bit on the watery side. But that just kept me reaching for more to finally finish the entire growler without getting obliterated. Tasty beer and surprising for a brew with such low abv. DEFINITELY a session brew, which I have been seeking out as of late. Might even be considered a "light" beer, if you're thinking about low abv rather than carbs/calories.

Finally, a decent micro that you can drink a lot of and not get too intoxicated! Because after all, it's all about flavor isn't it?

Had a growler of this over the summer. For being only 3.2% it sure does pack a lot of flavor. A ton of roasted malt flavor and nutty-ness to it. This makes it a great session beer but the low ABV does kind of put a damper on things because it's almost in NA beer zone. I've had better from CBH, but this is not a bad one by any means.

A - this dark ale is a dark mahogany brown thin white head, nice lacing retention, with moderate carbonation

S - strong roasted malt characteristics, with a nice hoppy background, nutty aromas as well

T - the taste mirrors the aroma, the malts are roasted and very strong, with that same nutty flavors, very clean, brisk, refreshing flavor

M&D - a great dark ale, easy down, may be a bit malty for some, perhaps a bit too roasted, but to me it was delicious, very good, CBH has yet to let me down

Draught @ the Brewpub: This one pours a nice slightly reddish-brown color. There was only a small head on it. The aroma is somewhat malty sweet, with notes of roastiness and chocolate. More of a medium bodied beer, with notes of caramel and roastiness. Limited amount of carbonation. A fine session beer, and a fine example of the style.

Update 5-2008: They have tweaked the recipe to 3.6%. The flavors are pretty much the same, but they stand out just a bit more. Very Nice.

the first of my brews on my visit to Cambridge this evening. The beer is served in a pint glass and is chilled. The brew exhibits a clear chestnut hue with minmal beige edge layer of head. The aroma is mild but consists of some toffee and caramel. First sip reveals a mild smooth body and fine rolling carbonation. The flavor is mildly sweet caramel and toffee with a light grassy hop finish. The body gets a little watery on the finish, but it is a mild and the brew goes down very easy and would be an excellent session beer. Quite a nice beer.
