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. Youíve really got yourself into a situation now. "Anger is energy. Use it, then let it go." Kampai!

Mondiale 2009. A brown with an edge of a red. Its on the brown colour side, very drinkable and bitter, just short of harsh. A little licorice and brown characteristic, secondary to a good hopping main feature. Carbonation right there.Not very drinkable.

12oz bottle. $5.99. Itís pretty good but Iím kinda annoyed about how much I paid for this bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with alot of carbonation. Definitely more hops to this than your usual brown and they mostly hit you in the after taste.

Huge head beige head that recedes in a rocky fashion. Lots of chunky lace. Light brown color; some cloudiness. Surprising level of floral hop. If blindfolded, I would think this is an APA. Great malt base and an even better hop bite. Well-balanced and easy to drink. Compared to most modern ales, this one has higher level of carbonation. Simply a beautiful beer.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Hoppy but with a truly elemental earthiness. Aroma is citrus and wet earth, overturned compost. Flavor; way citrusy; even more grapefruit than the pale ale! With less ability to take away from it at the same sensory level - by this I mean the pale ale was flowery and worked; the brown malts here have no chance to meld. None. Nice body, nice bottle-conditioning.

1FastSTi (3338) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2009
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 itís 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 (7154) - 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 (9225) - 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 (4859) - 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.
