Iím not usually a brown ale fan, but this is awesome. Great chocolatey notes to this one and is remarkably smooth. A very easy drink and lighter than I would have thought.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Cabo Fish Taco, NoDa, Charlotte NC. Clear deep brown liquid with a nice head of white bubbles. Nose is light caramel malt with hints of nuts. Taste is lightly sweet malt that has a nice roasted middle taste resolving into a very faint hint of bitter. Good overall beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally reviewed: 4/10/12. 12oz bottle, "bottled on" notched on the side - January í12.
Poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark chocolate brown with some ruby tint on the edges. Small tan head caps it off. The nose is sweet with fresh breads, mild chocolate tones, and a sugar-cookie whiff. Moderate depth, carbonation level is just a touch high for my liking, but not too bad. Nice bready flavors. Sweet malty toffee. Light bitterness. This beer is refreshing and a good one to cap off the night. Sweet, malty, tasty.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I originally had this a long time ago at a movie theater and I thought it tasted like a bad penny. My palate has expanded so here we go again. Pours brown and hazy. Very small brown head. Smell caramel. Taste is bland to me. I think I served it to cold so thatís more my fault. Still donít think itís worth it.

Poured out of a 12oz bottle ...pours very dark almost black ..has a aroma of roasted malts and a hint of chocolate ...taste exactly how it smells big on roasted malts hints of chocolate is in there on the finish...over all it has a better balance than the Belgian style ale they put out and all in all the only bad thing I can say about this is that I wish it had more carbonation but thatís just my preference ...cheers

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark, semi-transparent chocolaty brown with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, light tan head. Malty aroma has tones of molasses and caramel and a sweet hint plus a touch of hops. Flavor has malty and molasses notes plus hints of caramel, hops and honey. Smooth texture has above-average body and a little fizz. Bad penny? Not too shabby!

Draft. Pours amber brown with a beige head. Malty aroma with some toasty notes and a light sweetness. The flavor is generally on the clean side, with some toasty and sweet malts and light floral notes. Pretty good.
