Had this on tap in Little Italy, NYC. Not much aroma but nice deep red-brown color. No head. Tasted hoppy with caramel but a light mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Village Wine & Spirits in Athens. Good mild chocolate nose, along with some yeast. Very dark clear brown, 1-2cm tan head. Mild chocolate initial / touch of bitterness and something a little sourish, too / finishes very quickly. Thin and fizzy in mid palate. A slightly spritzy take on the style. A touch tangy, too. Maybe a little bit of oxidation (though it’s a couple of months from its drink-by date). Okay.

Bottle. Pours hazy copper brown with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, hops and fruit. Creamy, slightly roasted and bitter taste, finishing on a coffeelike note. Dry, rough aftertaste. A nice one.

Pretty average all around. Malty without much hops in aroma. Average carbonation. Slick and slightly sticky consistency. Aftertaste has light sourness and bitterness but not very interesting. Pours dark copper. Bottle from Smoke it Here.

One of the best brown ales I ever had. The aroma and taste remember some citric fruits. The body density is very fair and the foam last forever. I couldn?t tell any coffee in the aroma nor taste as some others did.
