A deep, bold nut brown ale beautifully balanced with rich dark malts and a complex hop character converging to reveal a simply enchanting elixir.

much better than their genesis ale, this brown was a good tasting, easy drinking brew. roasted flavor leans it more towards a porter in flavor, as far as a brown its a little darker than newcastle with similar qualities.

No expectations at all. Never heard of this beer. Pours a dark brown. Little to no aroma (it was pretty cold). Flavor has some suprising roastiness. It’s not too bad, but I wouldn’t pay for it. It’s drinkable tho, and I could certainly drink a few of these if I needed to. I sampled this after drinking several larger beers, imperial stouts and such, so maybe I missed out on all the flavor this has to offer, I’ll have to revisit this brew.

Bottle pours very dark brown with tan head. Sweet aroma of caramal and toasted malts. Flavors of charred wood, molasses, and a hint of caramelized sugar.

New beer in town. Well, at least for us. Aroma of roasted malts, bread and oats, a touch of coffee, and salted nuts. Flavors of dark caramel, mild coffee, crusty bread, and toffee. Pretty decent and easy drinking.

I’d like to be able to rate this higher but this happens to be a style that I personally don’t like. The malts are well-roasted but are thrown together with the hops leading to a product which, although fresh and assertive, is nasty and negatively bitter in a subjective sense. I’ve had bad luck with a certain type of brown ale in the past and this is the epitome of that type -- it’s an unofficial drainpour in fact (I tossed it), though generically it’s a well-crafted product which brings it over the 1.0 in my book.

Alright beer, got it from my buddy Drew. Dark color, but with barely an aroma what so ever! Not to much flavor as well....no the chosen beer!

Nice dark brown color with Malty caramel taste. It’s a light on alcohol and body but the overall taste is good with chocolate melding with citrus..

a pleasant beer, but not my favorite brown ale. Somewhat bland aroma. Appearance was good.

Bottle (great label!). Very dark brown but clear enough that reds show through light. Little head with almost no retention. Very surprising fresh hops aroma above some general roasted and smoky notes. When chilled, the hops bitterness dominates the sweetness of the malt and the roasted aromatics and flavors. At room temp. the mouthfeel is impressively velvety, the hops are toned-down, and the dark malt and toasted grain sweets are boosted. Finishes, at room temp., very sweet, much like a thinner brown. A fine brew, but I wish the body were boosted a bit to improve its roundness.

12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown that is almost black with a medium sized tan head. It has a very nice chocolate malt aroma. It has a espresso and dark chocolate taste to it with some vanilla. This beer is outstanding. I really enjoyed it.
