If you dig the brown beers that are perfect for sitting in a lawn chair and watching the world go by. Granted if you are in the northern atl area. Grab a six pack sit outside and shut the rest of humanity wait

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very dark stout brown with a creamy light brown tight head. Aroma of deep roasted smokey malt with a hint of caramel sweetness. Taste of smooth chocolate malt with a nice roasted coffee taste that finished with just a touch of herbal hop bitterness to round out the end. Med to heavy body that is creamy with a slight short bitter finish. Overall well balanced brown with a nice depth of flavor.

Conyers, Ga. - Mellow Mushroom - on tap. Sparkling dark copper pour, mediumm thick khaki colored head. Aroma is somewhat neutral with light sweet toffee notes. Flavor is full of sweetness with nice toffee notes, some toffee notes, a dollop of brown sugar and just a hint of date fruitiness. Decent stickiness to the mouthfeel. Pleasant diversion.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours clear dark brown with a small tan head that soon reduces to a partial coat.
The aroma is a bit weak and earthy for style.
The flavor is better. It seems like an average borwn ale until the finish and aftertaste where a more generous portion of hops becomes evident.

Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atl. Hwy). Light chocolate nose. Thick brown color, low head. Mild chocolate roast initial / touch of brown sugar in mid / balanced finish, with mostly the sweet roast continuing. Nice and normal. A tasty brown ale, kind of edging toward an oatmeal stout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Wild Wing Cafe in Alpharetta. Pours very dark brown, with a small, off-white head. The aroma is caramel, chocolate pudding, espresso, and burnt toast. Burnt and caramelized sweetness, heavy bitterness, and an odd, funky sour aftertaste. Heavy body, thick, and a little acidic. Overall, this is a strong, almost stout-like, brown ale, but the hopping is a little over the top, and the finish is rather unpleasant.

Pint glass pour at the Public House in downtown Savannah. Very dark brown pour with a heavy off-white head. Head lasted a few minutes. Nice lacing as well. Aroma of roasted nuts, caramel, toffee, dark chocolate and vanilla. The taste was extremely malty with heavy roast, caramel, wood, nut, and peat. Silky smooth. Full body. Finish is chocolate and wood. Very good brown ale.
