Notes from the brewery:
Brewed with two-row malted barley, roasted and chocolate malts, this classic American Brown Ale is distinguished by a deep brown color and creamy smooth taste.
CAL (12 oz.): 158
Notes from the Beersperts:
A good beer, unique. Nutty almost burnt smell. The taste is smooth then changes to bitter. Overall a pretty good beer. I'd choose it over quite a few other beers out there.
You smell the beer and it smells nutty. When you taste the beer a nutty, malt, coffee, chocolate aftertaste stays on your tongue. This brown ale isn't doing it for me, I'd like a thicker mouth feel.
Adam H "Chef":
The flavor versus the aroma profile is very complex. Smooth taste in the beginning then you go back into that hazelnut and black coffee aftertaste. The taste is intriguing and exciting. A good beer, solid complex flavor. A little more bitter when compared to a New Castle. I would sit around and drink quite a few of these.
