I thought this was a better-than-average brown ale, but my bottle was explosively frothy so sometime soon I would like to try another sample.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2007 Bottle.. This beer came across like a mutt, not an IPA, not a brown ale, somewhere in between. Forget that though, this is a tasty beer. I was not expecting 7.2% alcohol, the flavors are rich and balanced. Excuse me for not writing more, but I’m heading to the store to buy a 6-pak of this stuff.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2005 Very good. Great flavor, like an IPA mixed with a brown, some strong hops. Lots of brown sugar.

Beautiful garnet-brown, tan head and decent lacing. Sweet roasted malts, coffe and a little earthiness. Sweet and tart, malty backbone, hops and a fascinating bitter floral finish. Medium body, nicely carbonated.

The commercial description is right on. Lots of hops, lots of malt as well. Nice looking dark brown, decent head. Malty flavor with a bitter finish. Quite good

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2003
Nice amber\brownish color with a thin head that disappears quickly. Chocolatey, slightly fruity malt nose. The taste is well above what I expect from a brown ale, with hints of chocolate, a good malt profile, and a nice bit of hoppiness at the end. A damn niced beer.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Aroma is restrained but has notes of citrus, malt and chocolate. Pours a ruby brown, slight head. Very smooth. Hops linger at the end. Alcohol is nicely delivered. Awfully close to tasting like a porter. A solid brown ale, enjoyable.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
More like a brown IPA than a strongly hopped brown. Hops are strong. Body is thin. Dark copper. Nice head. Warm malty nose. Alcohol is well hidden. Nicely hopped.
