mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2010
Pours a lovely deep molasses black with a brief brown head. Earthy light hop aroma. Slightly sweet brown ale with a very earthy taste, lightly biting hop bitterness. Good carb, thinnish body. Quaffable, but slightly odd earthy taste.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Piney hop aroma. Deep brown with faint off-white head. Pitchy, resinous hops. Roasted malt appears in the background. Medium bodies with a gentle finish. Interesting approach with formidable hops providing the majority of the flavor.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   Deep cola in color, large frothy light beige head, nice lacing.   Combination burnt malts, lactose, pine, hops, charred wood, and campfire on the nose.   Not as malty as the nose suggested, moderate hops, slight bitterness, a little charred wood/peat background.   Has a bit of cow pasture and minor astringency.   Finishes fairly clean tho.   Has a decent amount of sweetness, comes across as a bit of pine and lactose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but does feel its on the thin side.   It almost needs to be more hoppy, more malty, and sweeter.   This seems like a Black Pale Ale almost.   Otherwise, not bad, a little simple for this new style.   Perhaps a good gateway example.

Port from a 650 ml bottle. Dark brown colour medium white head about 2 fingers high. I smell hints of roast malt and some creamy chocolate. Tastes a little bit like a porter without the coffee. Has a pretty smooth taste at first, but leaves a grainy charred taste behind, that begs you to take another sip. Kind of reminds me of the slightly charred taste of something grilled with coal.its minute and there but it’s quite nice. Might recommend it with spicy food.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle thanks to olympuszymurgus!Transparent dark brown, red highlights. Dank mint, earthy nose of light flour. Flavor is more malt up front, light green bitterness and pine with something that reminds me of cat litter. Very salty, piney earth finish. Light profile throughout, nothing dominates the other elements, but then again there isn’t much here.

carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2011
From big bottle. Some roast and odd spearmint flavor. Not much in the way of bitterness. Pretty bland and flat overall. Nothing compared to Barley Brown’s. These guys should stick with what they know best.

First off, the name really doesn’t work for me. Cola colored. Has a bit of an oil smell. Perhaps too much of one type of hops? Hoppy and bready mixture.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2011
draft. deep brown with cola colored edges and a tan head. up front it’s licorice astringent black patent and roast with cheesecloth yeast / hop character... so it has the bitterness of the roasts grains with an oily soy sauce flavor, and a terribly thinning and acidic / fizzy texture. weak malt structre throughout, and lacks pretty much any aromatic hop character expected in IPA.

The beer has a pleasant hop aroma but the bittering hops dominates an otherwise clean finish. The dark malts do not contribute excessive tannins.
