Quite interesting. Somewhat brwon in looks but not so in taste. Some nutty flavours but still soft was.

DocJitsu (956) - Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Pours a dark, whiskey-brown color with a short, quickly dissipating tan head. Depthless caramel, chocolate, and vanilla on the nose. Mouthfeel is a little lacking in body. Some chocolate up front. Sorghum appears and some faint bourbon gets folded in. Gets smoky with some coffee emerging at the finish.

radagast83 (4644) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2014
12oz bottle. Poured a small dark ruby brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was light chocolate, hazelnut notes, caramel and toffee. Flavor was light hazelnut, toffee, some grain notes. Better than I expected based on the reviews here.

ExpendableHero (750) - Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Copper colored beer with a thin, white head. Faint aromas of cocoa and toffee. Tastes of bittersweet chocolate, toasted wheat, toffee, caramel, and some woody notes. Hint of hazelnut is present too. Sweet, lactic finish. A bit watery, but it works. I really enjoyed this one, very smooth. Awesome concept and label art to boot.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is cookie and chocolate malt, dates and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle, tulip glass. I love Fantasy Brewmasters concept. Poured a dark amber color. Aroma and palate rich with roasted malts.

Suttree (5143) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Black, fragile beige head. Faint aroma, mostly coffee and burnt toast. Oddly light bodied. Roasty notes, then a lightly tart note. Some fruity flavors, too.

burg326 (3699) - Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a cloudy brown color with aromas of earth, nuts, caramel, and some light roast. Flavors were sme earthy caramel, and light nuts, not the worst brown ale out there, but not the best either, middle of the road brown ale.
