3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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. Thereís some mild bitterness in the middle to balance it out.
The texture is smooth and soft.
It tends towards the sweeter side, but itís really good.

2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is definitly diferent... not like any other thing iíve 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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another bottle shared by Ben at the Brick Store.
Pours a deep, hazy chestnut with a small beige head that recedes quickly to a small swirl of bubbles along the top. Little in the way of lacing on this one.
The nose is nice and has all the characteristics of a solid hoppy brown. There is an underlying sweet caramel and toasted bread malt with even a hint of roasted coffee. But what makes it a bit unique is the fresh hops and maybe some tobacco that seems to come out as it warms.
The flavor is a bit sweeter and thereís more of a citrus hop character than I got in the aroma. The backbone is full of toasted nuts and caramel malts. The finish is lightly bitter from the green hops and a bit of coffee.
The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with good carbonation and pretty dry for the style.
This is a very well done hop-forward brown ale which is a style that I like quite a bit. Itís got a pleasant and flavorful hop presence that brings just the right amount of bitterness. I definitely prefer this to the Hoppy Feet.
