UPDATED: JAN 24, 2016 pretty weak attempt at a brown ale, has a gritty roast to it, some bread crust and hair .. . mouth is weak, gritty bitter finish, surprised how much i didn’t care for it .. . . had another bottle, even worse, so gritty and plain. badly made brown ale.
Don’t be like that dad, there’s a war on.
Oh, I wondered what the noise was.

ctipping (1166) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2015
750 mL growler. Originally reviewed 5/6/2013. Deep amber. A few big bubbles. Nothing on the surface. Smell is nutty and chocolatey. Moderately hopped. Nice. Taste is hoppier than the nose implies. Nice nutty and chocolate flavor. Simple but nice. Just a bit of bitterness. Medium body. Rich flavor. Medium low carbonation. Quality beer as always. Nothing out of the ordinary but an excellent brown.

Mr_Abner (326) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown with an off-white head that leaves behind lots of messy lacing as it recedes. Aromas of caramel malt, some chocolate & cocoa, scant alcohol. Taste has a moderate sweetness balanced with a moderate bitterness. Medium bodied with less than average carbonation. Smooth and a bit "chalky" for lack of a better deScriptor. Flavors last well into the finish.

Bottle shared. Pours dark brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of overripe dark fruit, nutty notes, raisins, roast, cardboard and light oxidized notes (though it’s a new bottle). Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

trapped (2120) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 23, 2015
Draught @ John Brown Smokehouse, LIC. Pours murky dark brown with faint reddish tint, medium sized spongy beige head, mocha aroma, slightly sweet roasted malt taste, thin body, long burnt malt finish. A bit too burnt like but still fine.

nimbleprop (7202) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 22, 2015
50cl bottle from the brewery pours a murky nut brown with some soft, white head. Nose is what you expect from the style, bread crust, brown sugar, light yeast, perhaps some sumac. Flavor has bread crust, raisin, some turbinado sugar, maybe even a little tamarind. Some tannic tea notes finish things off.
