Bottle. Brown pour with tan head and a lot of lacing. Smells of roasted and sweet malts and slight hops. Tastes of the same with dark chocolate and coffee notes. Very good and complex brown.

22oz bottle. Light brown pour. Malty, nutty aroma. Nice, strong flavor of almonds, caramel. Bitter hop presence dominates the finish. I love strong brown ales and this is A Good one.

whoa only the second rating on RB. 22oz bomber acquired through trade. Excellent art work on this bottle, notice the clown shoes on the fine female. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint. Beer pours a medium brown with a nice white head. Aroma of amarillo hops hit me right away with a lil roasted barley notes. Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation, nice balance. Nice lacing down the glass. Sweet caramel flavor with some citrusy hops in the pallet. One of the better brown ales I have had.

Pretty beer, great color, nice head, malty, dark malt, some hops apparent but balance is quite good. Alcohol is quite well hidden.

Pours dark brown with reddish hue. Light tan head with great lacing. Aroma of malts, brown sugar, and light hops. Taste is dark fruit, dark roasted malts, and some hops on the back end. This is one of my favorate brown ales.

Dark brown with large tan head. Aroma roasted malt, cocoa, coffee. Medium body, no alcohol. Flavor also roasted malt and hint of coffee, nuts, a little hops in the background but those are mostly hidden. Quite decent.

Good dark amber / brown pour with plenty of head. Great color and good sweet aromas. Taste is kind of different in this one. Good overall to me but not the smoothness and malts I expect in a brown ale.

Bottle at Big Texas Beer Fest. Aroma of coffee, nutty malts. Cloudy brown color. Has stout-like characteristics: roasted caramel, chocolate malts. Lingering taste on palate. Not a bad brew, just doesn’t taste like a brown

On draft at Diesel in Atlanta. Darker and thicker than I would have expected. Semisweet maltiness. Filling and satisfying.
