FROTHINGSLOSH (4973) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a murky brown color with a small foamy beige head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was faintly sweet and malty with touches of caramel, fruity hops and almost cheese. The flavor was malty and toasty with a hint of bacon, a bit of bread and Parmesan and a bit of vague dark fruits underneath. Medium length toasty and bready finish with a bit of dark fruit lingering. Medium body. Ok.

Good brown. Pours murky brown thin tan head. Aroma lacking but a little roasty and burnt grains. Taste is chocolate, ash, and caramel. A little bitter in the end. Light to medium body light to medium carbonation.

superspak (2696) - Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 3/19/2013. Pours moderately cloudy deep ruby brown color with a 2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, molasses, brown bread, brown sugar, nuttiness, light chocolate, light raisin, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, brown bread, nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, light raisin, and toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown bread, nuttiness, herbal, light chocolate, and light raisin on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark malt flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice brown ale. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

frpilz (111) - Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Unbalanced, overly malty, syrupy, tar. Not enough bittering or complexity. Looked great and nice aroma, just not satisfying to me.

drfabulous (4055) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Big brown pour. Chocolate throughout. Some roast to the taste. A solid rich brown ale.

jwtinn01 (34) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Nice aroma due to spices, thin on the palate. A good brown style ale, but nothing beyond average

keepersj12 (2719) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours a dark amber with red highlights. The aroma has a lot of caramel, bread and a bit of booze. the flavor has a very nice caramel taste with more hops than I expected giving a fruity taste. A nice crisp feel in the mouth.
