    This is probably my staple ale to go to when i dont have a great selection of craft beers to choose from. Pours a tad flat but drinks smoothly. Nice malty flavor. Has a nutty finish and a bit biscuity.

    Lunatics broth as it's known in some circles is simply awesome. If I was doing my version of desert island "beers" and I could only pick one this would probably be it.

    beerwolf77's review really nails the details when it comes to the aroma and flavor, so all I can add is that it has a great flavor that stays on the palette long after the first sip and even though it isn't loaded with hops, it has enough so that you don't feel cheated.

    Cheers!

    This has always been a go to beer for me so I might as well give it the once over for reviewing purposes. Even though it's like reviewing an old comfortable sweatshirt that you've had since college.

    It pours a a chocolate amber brown with a faint wisp of head. The smell is malty and nutty yet a bit metalic. The flavor is similar to the aroma. Roast malt with a chocolate/coffee hint. Slight biscuit with a little bitter hop bite. This has a nice feel to it. Not chewy but substantial enough to feel robust.

    This is a hands down winner for me in drinkabilty. I've settled down over a 12 pack of this and next thing you know I've got 12 empty bottles.
