After pouring this beer was not as dark as I was expecting from the name. The head is a light brown color and the beer is similar to a cup of light coffee. The beer is fairly opaque. The beer smells malty and roasy with a hint of hops. The beer tastes malty and sweet, but not too sweet. There is a hint of bitterness in the background. The only complaint I have about this beer is that it leaves a bit of a funny taste in my mouth between sips. Other than that this is a pretty solid beer.

Dark copper pour, nice khaki head, hangs around a while. Sweet, candy like aroma - hints of chocolate, some candied sugar. Good nutty flavor, some chocolate, baked brown bread, full bodied flavor. Thickish mouthfeel. Solid Brown Ale - thanks to Aurelius for this one.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6842) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2007
This beer came in my beer club - I am not familiar with the brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a medium sized fluffy tan head. The aroma was roasty with a light floral hop undertone. The flavor was bitter and roasty with a moderate floral hop element. The finish was longish, bitter and hoppy.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown almost balck with a smallish head. Aromas of malts and some roastiness. FLavors of malts and faitrly aggressive hops that was a surprise. While drinking it seemed that the hoppiness mellowed a bit, but for a brown it was very hoppy.

keepersj12 (3063) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Very nice beer. Aroma is mostly malt with some earthy hoppiness. Dark brown color with a nice head. Taste is complex with malt and hops fighting for control. Finishes very dry and refreshing. Worth a try.

Bottle. Poured a cloudy brown color with a medium light-brown head. Strong lacing. Aroma of chocolate, malt, and coffee. Flavor is malty with a strong coffee overtone. Not one of my favorite brown ales.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Chocolaty ale aroma with a west coast tinge. Nice label, murky walnut brown beer. Grassy-earthy notes, floral/citrus overtones combined with a coffeish brown ale flavor. Medium body. FInishes with coffee and grapefruit pith hop bitterness. The occasional chemical and grassy note in the finish. Good. Ale in the Mail selection, June 2007.
