On tap at flying saucer Houston. P is a pretty ruby brown w minimal head. Taste is roasty malt with chocolate. Not too intriguing to me but an easy drink that satsfies the palate.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2011
On tap at Flying Saucer Houston. Pours a clear brown with an amber hue and a tan head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and dark grain with a hint of hay. Flavor is similar with notes of bread and grain, with a bit of sweetness in the finish. Uninspiring.

Beautiful dark brown color, with a hint of redness when poured into the glass. It didnít generate much of a head, but what WAS there stuck for a while. Actually, just a bit through the whole experience. Moderate dark aroma that reminded me of the pub I visited in Austin. Very nice. A slight burnt and toasted taste thatís not too overbearing. Just right in fact. Great texture and it didnít feel like I was drinking a soda or alkaseltzer with fizzyness. No over carbonation. For a darker beer, this one has a great taste and goes down easy, but maintains a feel of a full beer. I didnít detect any bitterness. Awesome flavor and great beer from start to finish. I think I just found my favorite. Highly recommended!! Great job.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, scarlet-brown colored body with a finger-width, foamy, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is nutty caramels and a light cocoa. Some light roasts and a touch of earth. Flavor is better. More of the nutty caramels up front with a light fruity sweetness and some cocoa. Some roasts blend nicely to balance along with a light earth. Finishes smooth, clean, and dry with a nice balance of all the flavors while leaving a light, roasty bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, an easy drinking, well made brown ale. Nice nutty caramel and cocoa along with a balancing roast. Not bad.

Appearance - The beer looked great, a little lighter than your average brown ale. Poured a great head that stuck around till the end. It was not cloudy. Carbonation was a little low but ok. The appearance got me excited to drink it. Smell - smells that stuck out to me; slightly smokey, and a hint of nuttyness. Taste - the taste mirrored the smell except slightly weaker. I found drinking straight out of the bottle to yield the most taste. Mouthfeel - Carbonation was adequate. the body was light and somewhat watery. Drinkability - Easy to drink, but I would not have another. Glass: Pint Glass Serving type: bottle

The darkest brown ale Iíve ever had to date. Looks like a thin Guinness, and smells like one too. Flavor of roasted nuts, like a Guinness.... Basically, its a good beer thatís not quite a Guinness
