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!

Pours to a murky brown body with a coating thin fizzy tan head. The aroma I swear has a nutty wet dog thing going on. The flavor is dry walnuts and brown malts. Sweet medium body with a dry grassy hop.

this has a overall amount to what a good brown ale, however their is a extra of hop bitterness at the end to that makes this beer less than stellar. slightly toasty with some harsh grassy hops.

The aroma is what I expect from a brown ale. It has caramel, malt, and hops to balance. I would like some chocolate but all in all it’s still pretty good. The appearance is hazy brown with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma with a bitter, papery finish. The palate is average. Overall not too good, not too bad.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Bottle thanks to Blake for sharing! Poured hazy medium brown with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter, dank nutty and caramel notes with some citrus and floral character around.. earthy with a touch of sourness.. decent balance to it. The flavor had nutty and lesser chocolate character with a little bit of sourness around.. quite hoppy on the back with pine and citrus. Medium-bodied and kind of slick on the palate with quite a bit of hoppage.. decent flow.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2009
bottle from Binnys in Chicago. Dark brown pour. Not worth the cost of a 12 oz bottle. Its good, but not THAT good. Hoppy as hell for a brown ale. Some nutiness, but most of this aroma and flavor revolves around hops. Some sweetness from the malt is noticeable. Interesting beer for sure.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 28, 2009
On tap at the Nakameguro Taproom, Tokyo. dark red brown with a big creamy head. Angry citrus hop aroma and flavours. Grapefruity hoppiness means serious business. Dry as a bone. Very good and uncompromising.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2009
Bottle from the Sam’s in Downers Grove, Illinois: This pours a hazy, cloudy chestnut body with a tall, creamy tan head. It has an aroma of toasted sweet malt, toffee, and cocoa blanketed by a variety of hop scents - pine, tangerine, floral, orange rind... Medium bodied, the flavor sees the addition of a barky woodiness amd some soft roasted nuts. The hops maintain a sturdy presence, but the flavor is pretty well balanced. The finish is dry with a moderate bitterness. Pretty nice.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2009
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, pine, cocoa, chocolate malts, slight wood, slight molasses, light caramel, slight toffee, and a hint of nuts. Poured brown/mahogany in color with a medium-sized, rocky, creamy, tan head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small and large-sized particles throughout. Small lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly spicy. Tastes of malts, caramel, slight wood, slight cocoa, slight hops, and slight nuts. Medium body. Smooth, slightly sticky texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, caramel, malt and light wood finish is a tad dry.

pours thick brown, beige head. Aroma yeasty, hoppy, citrus and grassy with notes of malt with thin touch of roast. Taste, malty, yeasty, light spices, hoppy, floral hops and citrus. Sweet with medium body with light bitter and dry finish.

sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - MAR 12, 2009
not much in the nose a little sweet and toasted. got that Japanese twinge to it, nice mellow brown with a little more flavor and a touch of hops. complex for sure but hard to place exotic but light spice and molasses. solid brown and a touch of head.
