Looks like Coca-Cola. Thin lacing throughout. An amazing bouquet of flavors. This has to be the best brown ale known to man.

Hands down this is my favorite brown ale. Tastes great and even goes well with buttered popcorn and a movie.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with a decent beige white head that diminishes quickly leaving only a little lace. Aroma is caramel and molasses. Medium sweet and lightly bitter. Average to light carbonation, light body, thin texture and a smooth balanced finish. Quite nice.

Dark brown pour with a red background color. Tan head that quickly faded. Roasted malts with a coffee background. Taste reminds me of drinking a light porter. Very easy drinker, great beer.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark brown body with beige thick creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, cacao, vanilla, grass. Palate is soft, little oily and full.bodied. Carbonation is soft and mouthful. Taste has distinct roasty malty taste, with cacao, chocolate and and fruity hops twinkling in there in between. Finish has a milky coffee like consistency. Very interesting ale, and has many flavors that you wouldnít expect in one ale. Enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a very dark brown colour, nearly like porter except it has a red tint when back lit. Light beige head is one- to two-finger thick and foamy. Retains poorly with curtain lacing. Carbonation low to moderate with small bubbles. Aroma strongly of coffee with a trace of subtle sweet caramel. Taste initially of sweet sugary caramel followed by roasted grain - taste not follow aroma. Medium body. Finished a bit sweet followed by coffee bitterness. Grows on you as you taste more of it. Very nice.

Nice mild choclatey malting with a good effervescence. Some high fruit notes that go into a mild hoppiness mixed with burnt notes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, almost black pour with thin beige head and lots of dense, creamy lacing. Creamy mouthfeel, average to low carbonation, clean finish. Nose is ferrous, chocolate, molasses, and smooth roasted malts, very smooth. Very smooth balanced flavor: roasted malts, woodsy bonfire and chocolate, licorice and floral hops. Nice brown ale.

Nice, dark brown color. Slight hop aroma, but a nice malty flavor. Molasses, raisiny, maybe some darker sugar.
