Reddish in color almost brown. Ok head. Maltiness, carmel, and some toastines in the aroma. Medium body. Smooth and light. Not as much in the taste slightly nutty.

Bottle shared by jsquire at jsquire’s. Very small tan head that mostly diminished, spotty amounts of lacing, opaque, no carbonation observed, and a brown hue. Nose was malty, caramel, roasty, and chocolate. Ditto for the flavor with some bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel and light in body. Quaffable but nothing super special about this beer. Just okay for me.

Pours a deep scarlet red to black, thin filmy head. Sweet molasses and brown sugar aroma, nice smoke notes. Smells like BBQ. Sweet liquorice upfront followed by smoked malts with a milk chocolate finish. Palate is thin but some what smooth. If it were thicker I’d enjoy this beer much much more.

Draught. Smoky sweet nose, coffee and nutty malts. Ruby-brown with nearly no head. A bit bland but what’s there is good, mellow sweet coffee with some light bitterness. Thin, but not to too much of a fault.

Goodgrief (1907) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Mar. 2007 - Dark, dark brown, little head or lacing. Really roasty aroma. Robust roast and nutty flavor with a strong smokiness. The smokiness really made it interesting. Not bad.

This bottled brew from JSquire at a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent uncarbonated brown colored body and a poor lacing. The smooth stout like mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The yummy flavor contained notes of dark malt brown malt and mild caramel. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

nutty alcohol aroma, dark brown color. Very nutty sweet malt, almost burnt taste. Not my favorite.

I thought this beer was one of the better TX craft beers I’ve had. It was a really nice brown ale with lots of caramel and roasty ("burned pizza crust") flavor. This beer poured a rather flat-looking reddish-brown into a pint glass. The head materialized rather late after I’d poured the beer. Aroma was pretty nice; a lot of brown sugar caramel-ness. Flavor was also good - a nice blend of caramel and burnt roastiness. I thought this beer had a lot more flavor than many other brown ales I’ve had. Mouthfeel was a bit boring and thin, but not bad. I’d have this again. Definitely recommended.

Garnet red beer against the light with a thin light greenish head and a dusty chocolate nose. Burnt coffee, dark chocolate, some ash and caramel sweetness. Decent for a brown ale.
