FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - 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.

From bottle pours dark amber/brown with a fair amount of head. Nice roasted malt flavor, with a lingering aftertaste.

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 (2627) - 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.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2007
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.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2007
12 oz bottle via Malt of Earth Beer Club. Pours a hazy dark reddish brown with an average sized chunky beige head. Nose is toasted grains, a little vanilla, tofee and some spicy hops. Tastes just like it smells with a little added orange peel/grapefruit in the finish.

Aurelius (4028) - 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.

emerica56 (600) - Bristol, Rhode Island, USA - APR 28, 2007
This beer pours out a nice dark amber color but the head fades away very quickly. There is a nice earth smell to it that is not that strong but still appealing. As you drink it you taste some nice earthy tones and some bitter hops.

Drink4Satan (675) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Poured a deep brown with a slight red hue. The head was modest off-white. Smells as it tastes. Solid matly body with overtones of figs. Citrusy hops give a bite to the aftertaste. This one is pretty smooth with great drinkability. Different from other brown ales Iíve had, but who cares how accurately a beer represents a style, so long as itís tasty.

mkgrenwel (564) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Medium bodied and smooth. Almost more of a light bodied porter than a brown ale. A little raisin. Nutty. I guess Iíd say some brown sugar. Not really complex at all, but smooth, good body and full flavored. I might call this more of an old ale than a brown ale, but itís pretty good.
