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!

PorterPounder (6220) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - bottle - split with Aurelius. Murky dark orange pour, bubbly, soft white head. Some vanilla, light spiciness and cake mix in the aroma. Cake mix maltiness in the flavor, some slight vegetable funkiness, yeasty, cloying sweetness. Smooth mouthfeel. Had better brown ales.

Aurelius (4657) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bad label, muddy-ruddy brew. Vanilla, cakey, woody aroma. Tastes pretty much like it smells. Effervescent, woody, medium heavy body. Beer Stop, Tallahassee.

pictoman (781) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
Poured from 360mL bottle. Cloudy, brown with beige head. Mild caramel malt and toasted malt with subtle floral hops, flavour finishes with an interesting sticky, sweet-ish tamarind/toffee like taste. Quite an interesting blend, tastes good, but a little bit odd.

S_Side_Smitty (594) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pours brown-amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is molasses and not quite (almost) chocolaty malts. Taste is heavy sweet malts up front with a bitter hoppy twang taking over the mid palate and leading to a steady bitter finish. Tastewise, this could almost be a black IPA, but the colorís all wrong. A great brown, however, packed with flavor.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle at the Roadhouse BBQ, Bangkok. Poured a hazy dark amber with a thin, broken, off-white head. The aroma is surprisingly peachy. The flavour is medium bitter with a big fruit, hop liqourice bitter palate and a little toothpaste with a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Itís the strangest "brown ale" Iíve ever had!
