jstraw (1929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Red-brown with big, flotsam, tan head / Bright nose of citrus and dry hops / Medium body, hoppy, with good balance and fine dry, bitter, finish / Flavors of dry hops, chocolate, grapefruit, and weed / Just an outstanding pale ale with a chocolate kick.

SPDickerman (975) - Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Pours ruby red with a large tan head. Smells like cascade hops (yes, exactly like cascade hops) and molasses. Taste is bitter and then has some solid brown ale sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Bear Republic/Fat Headís/Stone TBA (Texas Brown Ale) finishes with mild bitterness and a hint of sticky sweetness.

danrcook (25) - California, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Exactly what you would expect from Stone; great color and nose with a floral yet hoppy finish. One of the better collaborations. Sort of an amber IPA mix with its nutty and woody notes and rich color.

kidmartinek (3728) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Pours murky brown into the glass and fills it half full of frothy foam. Smells like strong malty, hoppy good beer with a cool, malty sweetness. The taste is exploding with citrusy hops followed by chocolate and carmel malts and finished off my a palate coating bitter maltiness. If that isnt the oxy moron of all beer descriptions. Its just exploding with good beer flavor and its all balanced so you dont fall off the scale. I wish I could take a picture of this and send it to you. This is the beer you have been waiting for out of the last 200 youíve tried.

Sublym (78) - Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Damm, this is a beer. This is my 3rd time enjoying this, 1st time rating it. Ok, it took 3 breweries to do it but you put brown ales on the map. All the best qualities of a brown ale kick up with smooth hoppyness. A beautiful beer, and even a little lacing. (love beers that leave lacing) beer lovers try this, brewers dont make this a special release. Make this one available to all, always.

pottygok (479) - Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Aroma: Caramel and chocolate with hints of fresh bread Appearance: Clear, dark amber with nice tan head Taste: Medium sweetness straight through with hints of sourness in the finish Palate: Light-medium body, soft carbonation, creamy texture, dry finish Overall: Very solid. Not mind blowing, but lots of malty depth that makes it a step above.

bUAkronG (15) - Akron, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2012 Aroma: strong malty scent Appearance: beautiful hazy brown appearance with a light tan finger head. Looks delicious. Taste: slightly bitter taste. Some vanilla comes through, or is that the brown sugar? Either way a pleasant taste. Palate: lightly carbonated and easy to drink. Overall: this is the second time Iíve had this beer; I got it before and enjoyed it so much I wanted to get it again.

Pours cloudy mahogany with a bubbly off white head. Pine resin nose. Black tea palate with some hints of citrus and balanced hops on the finish. Delicious!

onceblind (4329) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2012
Hazy dark brown with a foamy and persistent beige head. Interesting aroma of nutty dark roasted malt and some burnt caramel, as well as a strong essence of citric hop, a little grapefruity and orangy with a delightful floral aromatic. Taste was hoppy and citric, kinda floral and full of bitter orange zest. Finishes sweet and toffee malty with a little nutty malt essence, slightly smoky and floral. Interesting and tasty, just a little too resiny/bitter on the flavor than a brown ale needs to be. yes, even a Stone brown ale.
