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

Either my palate was completely trashed by the few previous beers or this had absolutely no taste. I’ve never seen a beer this dark with so little flavor.

A nice brown ale indeed, solid brown color, chocolate hoppy aroma. Taste is good, featuring chocolate notes with a dry finish, but could be more assertive. Very smooth with a relatively light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

How could anyone not buy this? Wasn’t as bad as I expected a gimmicky beer to be, rich roasty malts and a deep brown body.

tastes like an anchor steam on steroids, and that is a good thing. Bursting with flavor but I do agree that it can be a bit too watery although that does mean the alcohol goes undetected. A great go-to brew. perhaps the best thing about it is that its not a gimicy beer.

12 oz bottle...poured an opaque brown, w/ a slight tan head. ..no lacing. Nose was soap mixed with toasted nuts and malts. Flavor was the same...Palate was bitter and harsh. Not something I’ll ever try again...

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2013
Pours deep brown with negligible head. Malty aroma with a hint of nutmeg and maple. Smooth malt flavor with a hop finish. A bit flat for my taste. Drinkable, but unremarkable.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 6, 2008
faint aroma of malt. Deep brown with a small tan head. Malty smooth at the start turning tingly on the tongue wiht a finish that is a little bitter. Thin in the mouth.

soccer290 (225) - Highland Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2012
12 oz bottle. Last beer of the month club beer. Pours a brown color that catches the light on the edges, with a tiny light tan head, Smells of nut, malt, maybe some chocolate, and some hops. Taste is chocolate and nuts, some malt on the back end, but a pleasant milk chocolate flavor. Decent body from a brown ale. Overall not too bad, but nothing overly impressive.

KawaBomber (218) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2009
12oz Bottle: Dark brown w/ no head, kind of like flat Pepsi. Aroma is pretty weak, but there are some roasty malts present. Flavor starts w/ caramel fading into dark roasted malts w/ a hint of coffee. Finish is slightly bitter, a bit light, but not bad.
