Nice malty aroma, slightly tart and malty sweet at the same time. I understand from their website that this tartness is intentional. Considering that this is a very unique beverage. The tartness is remarkably refreshing amongst a lot of Belgian Dubbel like flavors. Still takes some getting used to though.

Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a clear amber body supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma is sort of a earthy and malty and nutty and roasty and interesting actually. It seems to pick up a bit of a smoky note with a bigger draw. The taste is a little roasty and estery and then it picks up a bit of spicy hops to earthy hops to an almost wet cigar leaf note. This is an interesting brown ale for sure.

Taste a bit sour not greAt. Mild not enjoyable watery. What is this a mistake. Yes just like going to a brothel. Cheap and nasty.

Hazy, cola brown, not much head. Creosote and yeast aroma. Twangy, Belgian notes, light roast. Chalky, coffee mouth. Lightly sweet? This was a mishmash -- too sour for a brown. Taproom.
