Pours dark brown with a hint of red. Thin tan head. Aroma has notes of caramel and chocolate. Nice malty flavor with hints of chocolate. Good mouthfeel. Good beer with no surprises (neither good nor bad).

Overall decent. A lack of stand out flavors keeps it from being really good though.

Pours cola-black with a persistent tan head. Not much on the nose, the palate has chocolate and some roasted malt but not depth of flavor. The high CO2 level overwhelms the flavors. Overall, a good session brown but not a terrific single drinker.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty, nutty aroma. Flavor starts slightly sweet and nutty, with coffee and chocolate. Finish was bitter, smoky, and frankly pretty harsh for what otherwise would have been a very enjoyable brown ale. Good, but not great.

A good way to describe this is that itís like a not so heavy or diluted porter, in a good way. It has all of the flavor characteristics of a classic porter; chocolate, coffee, nuts, etc. Itís simply lighter and more refreshing with good carbonation and balance. I really enjoyed this.

Pours a dark brown with a tan quickly dissapating head. Light body but complex flavor for a brown ale. Little brown sugar flavor but not overwelming. Slight chocolate flavor also. Nice ale over all.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
not quite a miss, but their weakest offering iíve had to date. understated nose of chocolate malt and a touch of bittering hops. flavor was the strongpoint at first but became a little less pleasant as the beer warmed. dry finish. Overall, an average or slightly better than average brown ale. So far I like the big ones better (Czar, Hog Heaven, Beast)...but the IPA, Red, Stout & Porter are all better than this."

Glass poured into a pint glass. No head. Smells chocolate and nutty. Taste is chocolatey but not much nutty.
