Nut brown color. Hoppy nose. Some citrus aromas as well. Good malt, nutty flavors. Fizzy with a full mouthfeel.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Draft @ the brewery. Very strong coffee, roasted malts and chocolate, smoked malts are big, with bigger than normal hop presence. Very active brown ale... alive for sure.

hopscotch (8540) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Crystal clear, dark, burnt orange ale with a creamy, off-white head. Very good retention. The nose is of chocolate, brown sugar, light molasses and vanilla. The flavor is well-balanced with chocolatey, roasty notes. Well-bittered, but the flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2004 Yes. it too dark for a brown ale, and taste too roasted. Looks like a dark porter, aroma is sweet and roasted, i mean stoutish roasted. Sweet brown sugar mostly, but it has some carmel and roast qualities. Most brewers would have called it a porter or a stout, they call it a "brown ale". Taste great, I wouldn’t turn it down and I might seek it out, it is what it isn’t. Very drinkable, but not as advertised. Finish is moderately burnt and dry

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 1, 2004
bomber-to be honest with you, since this is a bear republic brew, i was expecting a huge bombardment of hops. what i got was along the lines of DFH indian brown, which isn’t that hoppy. Just another decent brown ale. pours a deep brown hue with nice beige head and good lacing. good head retention. chocolate, nutty, brown sugar flavors with a hint of cardboard. Not much hops. Medium body, but kinda fizzy. I was expecting something better and more hoppy, like a real indian brown ale. not bad, but not one i would get again.

bb (6697) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a decent off-white head. The beer had a strong aroma that kept reminding me of a cheap vanilla milkshake. Vanilla, a sweetness, maybe a slight chocolate - but I kept coming back to vanilla milkshake. Otherwise it was definately a smooth beer. There’s a roastiness to it, but some slightly bitter and nutty characteristics, but overall is fairly mild. Easy to drink. Didn’t like it as much as others, but maybe it was just that for some reason I couldn’t get around the vanilla milkshake connection my brain wanted to make.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2004
A dark brown color with long lasting thich head. Hoppy sweet malt aroma. A smooth drink with hints of coffee and cream. Quite malty with a great finish. An excellent beer.

FlacoAlto (3737) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Pours an opaque brown coloor with ruby highlights when held up to the light. It is topped by a medium colored light brown head. A wonderful aroma jumps out of my glass, it is a mix of nutty malt flavors, espresso, and fresh hops. Hoppy flavors up front yield to a dry roasted malt finish. It is slightly sweet up front and has a certain nuttiness that carries throughout the beer. I get notes of sweet caramel, toffee, and a certain huskiness in the finish. This is a fine example of a Brown ale, and I definitely recommend it.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Deep red color, great head, very nice aroma of bitter chocolate. Flavor is that of a rich brown ale, with nice chocolate and roasty notes. Hops are more for bitterness than flavor here, but this is still a very nice brown ale.

This beer is better then the last one I had, and since the last one I had was a top 3 beer, that’s pretty good.
