COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer. A large percentage of black malt give this distinctive ale its dark brown/black color and that slightly roasted flavor. Magnum hops provide a backbone of bitterness and large additions of Mt. Hood hops later in the boil come right through in the finish. The result is a highly drinkable dark ale which bridges the gap between pale and porter.

Draft at Summit Public House. Has a really nice dark color, and a nice head, but the head has very shallow. Pretty good flavor, with some sweetness (fruit maybe).

Davhgbrew (934) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Draft wob cap hill. Malt forward, pronounced hop bitterness. Roasted, almost burnt black malt flavor. Dark amber, light brown color. Medium bodied throughout. Middle leads to dark fruit, prune, alcohol, chocolate. Finish is highly hop bitter and it lingers slightly unpleasantly on the tongue. Overall highly hopped bitter flavored malty balanced west coast ale.

hockeybeerguy (1853) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 23, 2014
The appearance had a brown colored body with a slim white foamy head that simmers down to a quick filmy lacy looking spotted head. The smell was slightly grainy with a little nuttines and chocolate. The taste had a mainly sweet nutty maltiness. The aftertaste is sweet nutty and malty. The finish is slightly dry yet sweet and lingering. The palate was about a light to medium in body, and has a decent sessionability. Overall, good English Brown Ale that I would have again.

maxwelldeux (3539) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a somewhat cloudy dark brown color with very little head on it. Nose has a little caramel in there, as well as some roasting on the background. Taste has a little bitterness to it, with a lot more roasting coming through. Feels a little harsher than I would have liked.

Hanuta06 (320) - Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Serving: from tap at Stellar Pizza, Ale, and Cocktails. Aroma: light floral hops. Appearance: small, light brown, initial head that quickly dissipated. No lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-red/brown body. Taste: lightly sweet, fruity, initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good.

rxeight (1277) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle from Lets Pour. Brown ale with a nice apple taste to it. Pretty good and easy to drink at 5%. Better than the ratings on this.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2013
On tap pours a dark brown color with a tan head that leaves ok lacing. Smells of roasted malt, banana, chocolate and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a nut and Belgian yeast flavor. Mouthfeel is heavy and watery with ok carbonation. Overall this is a pretty good brown ale with a Belgian twist but falls short on the appearance and palate.

22415brewery (371) - redmond, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Pours a dark dark brown with some deep ruby hues, moderate tannish head. Malty sweet, flavors of raisins and dark toffee, some muddled unspecific sharp caramel twang. Esthery finish, belgian notes abound with peppery and phenolic clove-like flavors, slightly slick mouthfeel. Bittering is a bit lacking and could use a bit more to balance out the sweetness.
