UPDATED: FEB 24, 2003 Dark brown color, with light brown head. strong aroma of raostiness and smokiness. the taste is wonderfully light compared to the aroma. just a small bit of smokiness blending well with the light bittering hops. the mouthfeel is great, very very smooth, not light but it does not hang around in the mouth for too long. very good beer.

Good porter. Clean and no harsh aftertaste. Rich body.

Draught is much better, nice dark, nutty, malty sweet ale.

The brown ale that wanted to be a porter. A 6% beer that is very drinkable. Great malt flavor. Drink this with spicy food and taste both the beer and your food.

dark brown color very smooth with not too much carbonation. can definately taste the malts in this one. kinda had the hint of a porter here. all in all pretty good. i’d definately drink some again.

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2002
Chestnut brown to near black in appearance and quite opaque as well. Nice, steady tan head. Chalky, black chocolate flavor that is reminiscent of a Schwarzbier than a brown ale.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 14, 2002
Clear reddish chestnut. Thin foamy tan head. Light but steady carbonation. Aroma of roasted caramel, chocolate, grass and hard water. Crisp and sharp on the tongue. Solid initial roasted caramel/chocolate maltiness. Lingering bitterness. Easy drinking. Nice feel to it. Light to medium bodied. Pings of hop bitterness. Finishes with an increased roastedness and dry chocolate character. Very surprising brew and quite tasty to boot.

Aurelius (4104) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2002
Toasty, non-burnt tasting -- not sure what kind of beer this really is but it’s not what you think of in terms of a brown ale. Clean finish, light palate, not sweet. Almost an American schwarzbier. Aroma has a little sulfur, but this is an easy dark to drink a lot of. Good value. Good option for less-filling dark beer.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2002
A brown ale that tastes and looks more like a porter. Color of cola with a larger head. Aromas of roasted barley and earthy hops. Grainy is a perfect descripter for the body. Roasted malt and coffee followed by a light bitterness in the flavor profile. Not bad, but not particularly impressive either.

Really enjoyed this beer. In addition to its wonderful taste, I was impressed with how well this beer complemented my food (red beans and rice with strips of cat fish and sausage, mmm).
