COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beneath the cool facade of the warrior, a red-hot flame of intensity, determination and, yes, anger burns. So it is with this unpredictable Brown Ale: fleeting malty sweetness and warmth hide complexity, a barely controlled bitterness, and, naturally, a bit of an angry edge. You’ve really got yourself into a situation now. "Anger is energy. Use it, then let it go." Kampai!

Bottle at Vendome NoHo. I am really unclear as to why this is getting passed over in the ratings. This is a very good brown ale. Color is a very dark brown with an engaging tan, fluffy head. Nose is full of hops, light berries, sweet malt. Flavor is all of those in great concert plus roast and a hint of yam. I could drink this often, and probably should.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle from Hashigo Zake. Pours reddish brown, tan head. Aroma is very hoppy! A lot of that American citrus goodness, with an underlying toasted malt.
Flavour is mainly hop driven - lemony citrus with a good bitterness. Toasty malt comes in on the finish, with a strong lingering bitterness.
A very good American brown ale, hitting all the right notes very stongly.

thedm (5028) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 11, 2009
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy typically carbonated brown colored body and thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was brown malt. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Clear amber golden with a dense, white head. Aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Medium body, roasted malt and caramel. Medium-bodied, roasted malt and caramel with a lightly perfumy edge of hops with a whiff of nuts. Dry finish with a discreet bitterness. 120709

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle - not sure where I got it from. Sweet, caramel, a little nutty aroma. Murky brown body with light tan head. Flavor was not too good at first but found some caramel, nut flavoring at the bottom of the glass. Maybe a little watered down. An alright beer.

improvjock (325) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Pours a clody dark brown with big tan head. Spicy hops and sugary caramel on the nose. Bitter hoppy finish. Not bad, but a bit too bitter for my tastes.

awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours a noticeably unfiltered dirty dark brown in a tulip. Thick bubbly light tan head. Nose is mostly sweet, caramel malts. Flavor is smooth, dry malt with a slight roastiness to it. Some caramel and a hint of bitter coffee. Bottle re-fermenting makes this one interesting and unique. No real complaints, very nice, very good tasting brown ale.
