Unclear Brownish amber. Medium frothy off-white head, lasting with some lace. Malty, bready, caramel, nutty, rusty. Medium to light body, sweet, light citrus, nutty, little dry. Sorta tangy I guess.

This is definitly diferent... not like any other thing i’ve had brown or ale... Arome is astounding. Appearance is astounding... that is the end of the good. Taste is like a household cleaner. Palate is like a household cleaner. Overall... a nice smelly householdcleaner with a head.
Reading other reviews... was mine a bad batch sour? I dont know.. but gag.

Bomber shared. Not sure if bad bottle or not but with the aroma has some coffee and moderate hops. But I get some sourness in the aroma as well as in the flavor. I get the hops in the flavor and the creaminess as well. But this sourness is a bit to much. Big light brown head that last with some decent lacing. Medium bodied beer. Hoping this was just a bad bottle.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a finger and half of light tan head on a brown body.
The aroma is extra nutty, roasted and toasted malt and a touch of lemon.
The taste is a well rounded roasted malt and chocolate flavor. There’s some mild bitterness in the middle to balance it out.
The texture is smooth and soft.
It tends towards the sweeter side, but it’s really good.

From a growler picked up at a whole food in Virginia. Aroma is pleasently malty with some light hop notes. Lots of good malt character. Flavor follows through with the promise. Malty but not overly sweet. Great hop balance. Really impressive brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
APPEARANCE: A dark brown pour with a fluffy tan head which depleted rapidly and a little lacing. AROMA: The nose is rich malt and perhaps a hint of dark fruit and brown sugar. TASTE: This a hardy brown ale. The initial taste is roasted malt followed by a blast of hops. This is not an over-the-top hop but a nice complement to the malts. There is in fact a hint of floral in the aftertaste. MOUTHFEEL: The mouthfeel is medium to medium-full. OVERALL: This was a really nice brown ale with a standout taste.

The beer pours dark brown with a soapy beige head. Earthy hop, chocolate, and slightly nutty aromas. Flavor is very malty with a slight bitterness in the finish.
