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!

Jyrsa (231) - - JUL 3, 2015
Tap @ Pudel bar. Pours a hazy coke-like brown with no head to speak of. Raspberry and cherry with some fruity sweetness. Malty with licorice, herbs and fruit. Medium body withba sticky palate. The beer got quite warm before I got to it but I’m not at all disappointed. A surprisingly complex brown ale.

degbert (1369) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a light to medium hazy brown with a creamy fine-grained light tan head. Nose is roast almonds, sherry, golden raisins, and hard cheese. Quite sweet on the front of the tongue, then shifting into a sharp, herbal, floral hoppy bitterness. More dried fruit and crisp nuttiness on the tongue. A definite new take on brown ale, and one I like; it stays with the sherry notes all the way through the finish. Most interesting.
