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!

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Rather tasty. Very malty. I can’t quite tell but it almost tastes spiced. It reminds me a tiny bit of some Baltic porters. Serving: Bottle

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Had from 12 oz. bottle from Hi Time Wines. Pours hazy amber brown with huge three finger head. Head dissipates slowly leaving behind slight lacing and bubbly film. Aroma is very malty with hints of nuts and alcohol. Taste is stronger alcohol than in aroma with mostly malts, caramel, and nuts rounding out the taste. Somewhat dry finish, just too much alcohol flavorings and a little bit watered down for me.

Bottle. Slightly hazy reddish brown pour with a creamy light tan head that lasts wel. Aroma is quite hoppy with notes of pine and citrus as well caramel and malt. Flavour is very similar with notes of lemon, grapefruit, grass, pine and caramel. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a long bitter finish. Brown ales aren’t my favourite style but this one is really good, almost like a cross between an IPA and a brown ale.

GardenGabe (136) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Nose is sweet and sugary. Malt smell earthy. Pour is clear dark brown/mahogany some head and large carbonation. Feel is light and fresh with a surprising amount of carbonation on the tongue. Taste likes hops This is a surprise. Bigger than I would expect for this style but good. Sharp spicy bitter. Long bitter finish. Tasting brings out citrus, and floral.

Leighton (15389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2010 Bottle. Pours a cloudy, light brown with a sturdy, tan head. Light roast aroma with some caramel, honey and nuts. Modestly sweet flavor up front, with some chocolate and brown sugar, then subsides to a bitter finish with hints of tobacco. Medium body, average carbonation. For a brown ale this beer displays strong character while remaining eminently sessionable. High marks. Update: I had one of these that was about ten months old and it has held up very well. Just thougth you should know.

Bottle. Pours amber brown with an off white head. Malty aroma, light nutty notes. Similar flavor with a slightly off vegetal flavor. Not awful.

drjay44 (3090) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAR 11, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick lasting beige head, with quite extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, thick yeast sediment in the bottom, brown (SRM 30) body.....nose is light molasses, caramel, brown sugar, with a hint of coffee/chocolate......taste initially caramel malt, then hop bitterness arrives and lingers.....mouth feel is medium, carbonation medium. This has a more heavily hopped flavor than many Brown Ales. It is nicely balanced however as the malty up front richness needs the hoppy balance. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
