Pours, as one would expect, a brown. Aroma is sweet, as is the flavor. Not a whole lot more to it.

Bottle. Not much going on in this one. I did detect a mild note of caramel malt, roast, and nuts, but they were not so easy to detect. Slightly thin. It needs more work.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a cola brown with a decent biege head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and a bit of hops. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, and a hint of chocolate. A bit thin, but drinkable. OK.

Clear brown. Noticable nutty, caramelized taste. Light body. Minimal head. Very drinkable beer, but nothing memorable about it.

Twelve ounce bottle under the "alias" Point Burly Brown, part of a "Point Craft Pack" purchased at The Party Source. Dark ruby/brown hue, strong sweet malty nose, large tan head that slowly receded with good lacing, good sweet malty flavor with some depth but somewhat undercut by some unpleasant elements in the backround--this bottle might have been a tad old. Like Point Horizon Wheat, seems to be better a little colder than one might expect.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Marketed as Point Burly Brown, part of their Craft Beer mix pack. Tasted from bottle into nucleated pint glass. Poured a beautiful, clear, dark reddish brown color with moderate off-white foam. Refined aroma of caramel malt, toffee, slight roasted barley and chocolate, fruity ale yeast esters. Delicious malt sweetness with tangy, fruity American hops (LOTS more in flavor than aroma,) reminiscent of raisins, plums, molasses, nuts, fruit-cake or Boston brown bread. This intriguing grainbill hints at Belgian Special-B malt, which was a complete surprise in an affordable twist-off grocery store offering. Medium body, smooth and creamy mouthfeel, kettle-caramelization reminded me of extract homebrew (in a good way.) Very well-crafted; much hoppier and tastier than I expected. Point really ought to promote this beer on it’s own.

I bought a 12pk sampler of Stevens Point Beer for $11.99 from Woodman’s in Janesville, WI in Spring 2011. It was labeled as Point Burly Brown on the package.
Pours a dark brown color with just a slight fluffy, off white head. Picking up scents of hazelnuts, roasted malts, and caramel malts. Taste is rather smooth and sweet. Can really taste the caramel and sugars. After taste is quite robust and flavorful. Rather tasty and flavorful. A decent dark beer.

Bottle from Laurissa. Nice brown pour with a white head. Aroma is faint grain and sugar cookies. Taste is a little malt, a little nutty, and kinda sweet.
