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!

bozoNZ (758) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 30, 2011
Rich chestnut brown good head. Light toffee malt aroma. In the mouth its all about the malts. Toffee and caramel with the faintest herbal hop finish. No real wow factor but has a lot of drinkability

Hard to argue with this high score...this is easily one of my top 5 browns. Crisp, sweet malts, quite a bit of caramel, this starts out just excellent. A bit thinnish, sticky finish brings it down just a tad, but overall this is quite good.

mkel07 (5226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2010
360ml bottle. It’s all foam in the intial pour but it settles quickly to become a muddy and murky dark brown colour. Aroma is roasted malt and barley that smells like milo. Initial strong malt flavour thta gives way to a mild bitterness and an easy to drink mellow flavour.

From a 12 oz bottle from the Portland Street Market in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Poured red amber with a foamy light tan head and moderate lacing. Nose of roasted malts with some light chocolate and floral hops. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Flavor malts and chocolate and quite a bit of hoppy bitterness. Finish is bitter. Quite good.

Bottle. Dark brown, modest offwhite head, brilliant clarity. Nose is nuts, roast, chocolate, caramel. Flavor is pecans and almonds, slight caramel and toffee, medium hop bitterness with light grassy flavor, finishes sweet. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A rather unique brown ale with surprising depth and complexity, definitely makes me eager to try more of Baird’s offerings.

Souped up brown but lots of fun. Has a good lick of aniseed and fruit cake running right through the palate. Almost sweet and not really traditional. But sometimes brown ale needs a lift like this. Tangy minerals to finish.
