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!

Leighton (14303) - 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.

drjay44 (2994) - 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

Cybercat (4077) - Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Inviting aroma is strong and malty with a nice undertone of fruit and a hint of brown sugar. Pours with a VERY thick and fluffy, and fairly persistent, cream-white head. Beer itself is a clear, warm mahogany. Flavor is very pleasing, malty with an undertone of hoppy bitterness and hints of fruit and honey sweetness. Texture is very smooth, slightly tingly, quite pleasant.

Bottle: Cloudy chestnut/leathery color with a finger of creamy tan head. Smells malty and sweet with light roast. Flavor profile is bold and smooth. Florals, roast, nuts, toffee. Light citrus and finishs well with lingering bitters. Indeed likeable.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 19, 2009
THOUGHTS: Interesting beer. It seemed very malty at first and then became exceedingly hoppy, but still very drinkable. There was a nice balance. Lots of hop flavor, but not very bitter. Actually a little cloying by the end; even with all the hops. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium brown with an average to large, off-white head that slowly diminished and kept a thick sheet. The aroma was moderate to heavy caramel malt; moderate citrus hops; apple, cherry, toffee, brown sugar, vanilla and cola. The initial flavor was sweet, while the finish was less sweet and fairly bitter with a long duration. There was caramel, brown sugar, toffee, citrus hops, a little yeast, cherry, apple and a little metallic hops. The medium body was sort of creamy then a little dry with fizzy carbonation and lightly dry and fairly metallic finish.
