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.

Nice dark, thick, ale. Rolls nicely down the tongue and nice soft aftertaste.

Dark brown with flecks of garnet. Head is initially medium and light brown, but quickly fades to nothingness like the head of a quickly poured soda. Slight whiffs of brown sugar and roasted malt in the aroma. Mildly sweet flavor, again with brown sugar and molasses notes, with a moderately roasty finish. Traces of aspirin in the aftertaste. Very lightly bitter. Carbonation is a touch too high, and the body is rather thin.

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.

Not much here. A standard brown ale, mildly sweet. Well carbonated. Very faint roasted flavor.

Poured a reddish brown wothout much head. Nice balance, nothing overwhelming, but a little watery. A decent brown ale.

(bottle) Crisp brown ale with refreshing taste. But nothing to get excited about, in short, their are many browns I would drinkl before this.

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.

12oz bottle. Brown, ruby color with small tan head. Roasted malt aroma, some sweet dark fruits. Slight bitter grainy taste with a little dark fruit, plum, and heavy cloying sweetness. Med body and little carb. Not that great and kind of making me sick.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 25, 2007
In the bottle from Beertopia. Pours black with a thin off white head that looks white from the contrast. Thin body and surprisingly boring. This definitely is my least favorite He’Brew beer. Mild roasted taste, but little else. A snoozer.

My first reaction was nit had an initial metallic taste. It didn’t have the malt smoothness ihave learned to expect from a Brown. It seemed to be over-hopped, leaving a hop dominant aftertaste.
