Pours deep brown, almost like a burgandy. Very little head that is gone in less than 10 seconds. Not a lot on the nose. Maybe some nut aromas. This beer improves when you taste it. It has a full body and a viscous, creamy mouthfeel. It has a nice caramel malt flavor with a nice roasted nut accent. Very drinkable brown ale.

I visited this microbrewery/brewpub last summer and now have a few of their beers in my possesion to evaluate. My impression during my visit was "average" at best and it remains that way.

This beer has little to no carbonation...it is chestnut brown in color...it has very little smell...it tastes a bit watery and thin but does have some decent (although) subtle flavor to it...it actually tastes like a very thin watered down red...the taste, like I said is OK, but the mouthfeel is poor...it just doesn't have much character to it...Not to be harsh but I think someone brewing at home for the first or second time could duplicate this rather easily..Drinkable...but below average overall..
