Coffee undertone and smooth as glass flavor. This is good beer. Brown Ales arenít really at the top of my list but this one was. Iím pleased its lived up to my expectations. Lava glass color I said coffee and chocolate flavoring. Not overly bitter. A very well made product.

Great Beer. Nice level of both malt and hops with a slight coffee taste. Great color in the glass. Nice dark brown.

Wonderful beer. Its my fav brown ale. The name might sound stupid, but its worth a try. I think this beer is better on tap, but i might be wrong.

Dark color with a frothy medium sized tan head (though it seems most people experienced a much weaker head). A rich malty aroma. Taste mostly consists of roasty malts with hints of toffee, yet goes down surprisingly smooth with a velvety finish.

A brown,sweet ale that is very sweet. Chocolate is the dominate aroma. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy. The head is thin and lacy. As someone mentioned, this ale is akin to drinking a brownie.

This is a very drinkable beer! Rich redish-brown color with a tan head. Light to medium body mouth feel with a mild roasty, malty taste and a nice bitter finish. Not overpowering or filling - could be a "sessions" contender. I like this better than Brooklyn's and Newcastle's brown ales.

"Poured dark dark brown with a tan head lacing was great. Aroma was of chocolate and nutty, more hops aroma as it warmed. Flavor was dead on, chocolate roasted malts and nutty as it warmed. Mouthfeel was nice and creamy wish i had a bunch more of these. "

Poured a very dark amber/brown with a light tan head that faded rather fast. The nose was nutty with malt, caramel and a slight smokiness. The taste started malty with subtle toasty, toffee-ish and cocoa notes. Midway a yeasty fruitiness works its way through, then a backbone of roastiness and some mild grassy and floral hops appear in the end. It finished dry with a lingering nuttiness and floral hoppiness. Very nice! This is a surprisingly satisfying and drinkable beer that probably deserves more attention for its flavor than it gets for its name.

Aroma is very light, color is dark smooth and even with light airy head. Flavor is very malty but still light for a brown ale with a clean finish without a heavy aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Pours a dark, dark brown, almost black like cola. Thick creamy, toffee head fades, but not completely. A thin layer of creamy, yeasty foam stays for the duration. This ale smells like cookie dough, tastes like a hazelnut milkshake.
Delightful!!!! 99 cents for a pint at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee on 9/21/2007.
