aroma is dirt, big roast, some java. frutiness lurks below but indistinct as any unique example. appearance is translucent ruby but opaque at distance, frivolous legs, live carb. flavor is late pina amongst filthy roast. bizarre clash of cherry/grape and darkened coffee.

Draft at Capone’s several times during Philly Beer week. Poured dark brown with tan head. Nose was brown sugary Munich malt, cacao, fine tobacco, figgy fruit. Tastes malty and figgy, with backup hops. Good complexity and great flavor in this one.

egajdzis (5270) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Dark brown with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral hops, tobacco, caramel, resin, and light vanilla. Taste of caramel, roast, pine resin, tobacco, and a semi-sweet finish.

PhillyCraft (3138) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2011
On tap at Capones, poured a cloudy deep amber color. Head and lacing were on the small side. Aromas of pine, caramel and chocolate malts, grapefruit. Taste is a citrus explosion controlled by a brown sugar, cocoa character mixed throughout. Impressively hopped and juicy for a brown ale. Some further notes of smoke, grape, and roasted barley. Great brown ipa from Founders.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2011 Draft at Capone’s with Dallas and Pat. Pours a deep, hazy maple brown body with some white lacing. Aroma is fresh pine hop, sweet maple caramel malts, and earthy tones. Mouthfeel is nice with notes of fresh pine hop, caramel spice, a touch of cinnnamon, earthy finish.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2011
On tap at Capone’s. Pours a medium brown color with a thin off-white head. Some spotty lacing. The nose brings strong pine and earth with a moderate amount of semi-sweet brown malt and a higher amount of lightly-roasty malt. The flavor offers a good balance between slight roast and toast plus some piney and earthy hops. The hops dominate, but the malt provides a nice backbone in a way that works here that wouldn’t with a traditional IPA. Good balance all around. Strong hops in the finish. Quite solid.

A - The beer is a fairly clear rich copper color with a half finger of off-white head. The head fades to at thin ring leaving behind some nice lacing. S - The aroma is a mix of some lightly toasted caramel malts and a touch of brown sugar and pine hops. T - There is some sweet lightly toasted caramel malts and some brown sugar. Through the middle, some hops and some richer caramel and a bit of spices come through. The finish is a mix of caramel sweetness and some hops that linger. M - The beer feels medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It feels very smooth and crisp. The finish is sweet and semi-dry. D - Very drinkable. There is a nice balance of sweetness and other flavors and the hop addition is quite nice.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a growler. Pours a dark brownish-amber color with a medium and lasting dense off-white head that eventually becomes a film. Sticky jagged rings of lace. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Medium body with a nice balance of sweet caramel malt and bitter hops. Some fruit in the background as well. The finish is spiced hops with a slight bitterness left over. Above average overall.
