A more traditional English-style brown, emphasizing sweetness and a smoked malt flavoring.

Smoked roasted malt is a nice touch but is a bit underwhelming until it opens up and warms.

Can. Pours deep brown with a thin a beige head. Nutty sweet malts, hints of toffee, light grain, and low bitterness. Not bad.

SDalkoholic (2232) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Aluminum can from Sprout’s: Poured dark leather brown which was propped with frothy topping of foam head that left behind plenty of lacing. Aroma was mild yet pleasant with a scent of lightly toasted malts and touch of assorted nuts that have been roasted. The flavor is bland and has a minor toasty nut flavor but other than that it’s dull and reminds me of wet cardboard at moments.

DocJitsu (1252) - Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber color with a light taupe head. A bit of brown sugar and medium roast barley nose. Mouthfeel is slick and filling, but yields to stop carbonation scrub and hop heat. Sweetness gets overcome with bitterness. Average.

Crispy34 (465) - Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Draft at LAX. Aroma is of carmel malt. Appearance is a thick brown with a little thin, white head. The taste starts an almost dry, dark/carmel malt flavor then rolls into a sweet sour malt flavor. Palate is a little sour in the back of the roof of da mouff. Overall, a decent brown. There are better out there, but decent. Would be higher rating if the aftertaste was less. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Poured very dark brown. Sweet, malty aromas with a toasty, coffee flavor to follow leaving a slight roast taste on the palate. Decent although this one had a bit of a porter style to it.

jcartamdg (2438) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Pours a deep dark brown with an off white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, chocolate and dates. Taste is raisins and dates, caramel and sweet brown sugar. A bit too sweet for my liking. Not bad if this is your thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: skunky. Appearance: Beautiful clear brown with a large thick head. Flavor: Roasted malt with some coffee notes and very little hop bitterness. Palate: Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall: I like the roastiness, but nothing else really seems to be going on.
