Pours reddish Brown with a creamy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts with hint of chocolate. Taste like a standard brown but with more hops on the back end than your standard brown. ----Hophaze out

12oz bottle shared. Poured a medium brown color with off white head. Very nice aroma of roasted malts, hops, and some caramels. Flavor has the bitterness if hops with the roasted malts. Solid flavor and very well balanced.

"for some the peet, sweet brown malt, and ipa hop flavors don’t come together, but I think it’s nice. 7% alcohol ensures the body of this beer to be a cut above your average brown ale. 5/09 - more brown sugar than i remember, and even better (fuller) body & flavor. upgrade appearance and flavor 1 point each. easily one of the best browns out there."

One of my absolute favorites. Great combo of happiness and rich malty flavor. Roasty, a bit nutty in the middle.

ZacM612 (159) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Brown with a medium off-white head. Nutty aroma, minimal hops presence. Flavor is the same, not a lot of hops. A little coffee and chocolate.

ippopotamo36 (254) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 9, 2014
At Bir&Fud pub in Rome-Italy, on tap. Pours dark brown (almost black) with reddish texture and a decent and compact ivory head. Nose is definitely sweet: cappuccino, chocolate, warm milk. The mouth mirrors practically the aroma with a predominant presence of dark chocolate.

Mr_Hops (116) - Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2014
This is a beer that has such a hoppy front with the most flavor on the back. The malt character, the roastyness and all the sweet caramel and smooth flavor just really makes this a favorite of mine.
