Bad Tom Smith was a felon and a murderer. He confessed to the killing of six men as he awaited his fate at the gallows, telling the gathering crowd that “bad whiskey and bad women have brought me where I am”. That being said, we hope to do penance for his crimes by making good beer for all the bad whiskey Bad Tom drank. This includes our flagship beer. Deep within this dark liquid lies the essence of a brown ale: a malty, sweet backbone surrounded by notes of nuttiness and caramel, with just a hint of chocolate. Low hop bitterness balances out the rich body to create a solid, impressionable American brown.

Draft sample at Volksfest. Pours brown in color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, chocolate, a bunch of fruit character, almost candy like sweetness, caramel, better than some of their beers, but not something I would revisit.

Mild and nutty. Light-ish. Really light. People around me are ruining the score of the game I am intentionally not watching so I can enjoy this beer tour. Grrrrrr

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber color, heavy bubbly off-white rim head, spots and dots of lace. Taste is heavy sweet malt that turns crisp and a little bitter on the swallow. Overall. a little heavy in the stomach, but, otherwise, satisfactory.

Sample at The Daily Growler. Cloudy dark brown color with a medium beige head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, hops and caramel. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short caramel malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Drjohnrock (690) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Draft at Double Barrel taproom, summer 2013. Nice brown/dark amber hue, moderate malty/fruity nose, thin body, malty/fruity flavor with a prominent dark berry note. Interesting, refreshing brew that to my taste buds is kind of like a cross between a brown ale and a fruit beer. Might be a good gateway beer for those getting into craft brew
