Great brown ale! Lovely use of the C hops, chocolate, slightly stronger roast, cookie, carbonation is spot on, bit milky in feeling. Yum yum.

jjgmd (1909) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2016
With Zach at the Pony Bar in midtown Manhattan , on a late Sunday night, pours a brown color with a brown Java head. Nose is light cocoa and malt with some Java. Taste is mocha Java with a nice confluence of malt and hops. Very drinkable as it smoothly bathes the palate . Finishes on the same tasting notes. A great brown ale, perfectly done . Quaff Score 9 / 10

Mouthfeel is soft, round, astringent and medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet and bitter with bread, caramel, walnuts, grass and hints of grapefruit. Big malt backbone and herbal hops.

From notes. Enjoyed this baby at a line share at Witch’s Hat on St. Patty’s Day. 500 mL was opened by the guy like 3 or 4 people in front of us that had horrific gas later in an enclosed hallway. The pour is a cola colored brown with a good amount of ruby shining through. There is a light tan head that isn’t large to start, and fizzles down to a collar in short order. The aroma is incredibly hoppy right up front with a little nuttiness behind it. There is a light chocolate and a decent toasted malt, but the hops are pretty heavy. The flavor mimics it. There is a bitterness from the hop that lingers through the whole thing. There is a light chocolate and some roasty malts, but it’s pretty dominated by the hop. The mouth feel is lighter and carries a lighter carbonation. It just falls off the tongue quickly. The aftertaste is lingeringly bitter and carries a little nuttiness to go with the piney hop. This one isn’t too bad. It’s good for a brown, but I’m not too keen on the hoppy browns.

A deliciously hoppy brown ale that is extremely well balanced but presents fantastic hop character in a darker than normal brown ale which results in a complexity unmatched in most other beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
