Tried this beer at Mellow Mushroom Savannah. Has a very nice nutty aroma with hints of chocolate. Color is deep brown with some reddish highlights. Very nice lacing all the way down to completion. Beer starts with a nutty chocolate flavor and finishes with some nicely bitter hops that fade smoothly not to overpower the body. All in all very pleased with this offering.

Tap @ the Distillery. Dark brown color, thin head. Toasted malt scent. Flavor is a nice bold roasty malt. Finishes with a heavy bitterness than accompanies the malt. Superb Brown Ale. (3267)

Nice amber to brown pour with good two finger head. Good lacing. Light citrus hop aroma mixed with some toasted and caramel malts. Good malt body and a real hoppy aftertaste. Quite hoppy, but it doesn’t linger. Good overall brown ale.

Draft at Coco’s on tybee island. Pours a light brown with a small creamy off white head. Aroma is roasty, light cocoa and some sweet toasty bready notes, light earthy character. Flavor has more of the cocoa and roast, very well balanced, drinkable with a distinct earthy hop finish, nice crisp bitterness. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Very nice brown ale.

Draft at the Crystal Beer Emporium in Savannah. Funny, ’cause the guy next to me asked for something local and they gave him this ... never mind it’s brewed in Virginia. This is a dark, nutty and creamy brew, opaque and swallowing the light. It delivers with a chewy malt, semi-sweet. Quite nice drinker, ending with a sweet toffee finish. (#4702, 7/23/2012)

Can sent up by Danny, why, no reason, just did it. Pours a dark brown with a two finger light tan head and tongs of lacing in the glass, aroma is pretty interesting, good amount of roasted malt and chocolate but some light hoppy notes come through too, interesting, the flavor has again more hops and citrus than I was expecting with a ton of chocolate too, strangely works though, a hoppy chocolate and malt beer, huh, good stuff.

On draught at The Distillery in Savannah. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of roasted nuts, sweet malt and hops. The finish is roasty with a lingering malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

I completed the Savannah Century Bike Ride yesterday and really wanted a beer. Lucky for me, the ride ends at The Distillery, so getting a good beer was easy. I saw this and hadn’t even heard of a new Savannah brewery so I tried it. This is a hoppy brown, much like Terrapin’s India Brown. Rich malt. Sharp hoppy bitterness. Hop this place succeeds. First beer is solid.
