bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 12, 2008
Bomber. Dark chocolate aroma. Dark brown color with a three finger beige head. Medium body with fine carbonation; almost chewy. Flavor is lots of chocolate, dark roasted malt, and bitter (probably burnt malt and hop). Finish is dry, and the bitter is persisting. Seems to be really good for a brown ale. Damn near crisp.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle... Clear, dark brown ale with a large, frothy, khaki head. Small, creamy, everlasting retention. When held up to light, copper/ruby hues are revealed. Rich, hearty aroma provides chocolate, tropical nuts and a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Nutty, malty, chocolaty flavor with a whisper of coffee. Medium sweetness, modest bitterness and light acidity. Finishes well-roasted, balanced and lightly tangy.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2008
22oz bottle. Typical brown body, clear, filtered, all that, with a toast colored tan head on top. Very fresh, very full, well attenuated, rich and delicious almonds, vanilla and bread crust, with some chocolate malt and cocoa notes. Some dusty mineral notes in the finish, a bit of mold perhaps, but overall very few complaints. Good brown ales are difficult to find... but I always have been a sucker for the Full Sail house character.
