Love this beer! Not a typical brown ale at all, lots of hops but also lots of nice malt character too. In my opinion it pushes the balance of hops and malt to the extreme!

22oz bottle. Pours dark brown with no light coming through with a medium tan head that sticks around. Wow! For a brown ale this is fantastic. Lots of flavors including caramel, brown sugar and chocolate together with a nice dryness and bitter hop notes on the back end. I am enjoying everything I am tasting from this brewery despite the stupid looking labels with dwarven warriors or whatever.

Shared at the lobby molestation share in Tampa .. Grungy tan .. Mild slick oily mouth .. All kinds of off flavours, dirt and shit- tastes like a gerbil ass smells .. . . "Heh. Why the fuck is my pig purring? Can’t wait to get home to figure this one out!"

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ticked at night one of the rbwg2015 hotel lobby bottle share extravaganza. 22oz bomber (courtesy of jcwattsrugger, thanks John) pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a light tan head. The aroma offers up roasted malts, nuttiness, a bit of chocolate and caramel malts. The taste starts with roasted malts and nuttiness and then it heads into mild noble hops. The hops pick up with some bitterness just as the roasted malts get a tad astringent. Darn tasty Brown with great depth and balance.

2/19/15. Bottle sampled during RBWG 2015. Brown pour under a small khaki head. Bad aroma, butterscotch, nuts, chocolate, husky, weird. Not a great flavor either, off-putting, butter, dusty old chocolate. Something off with this one.

750ml bottle, tasted during RBWG. Kind of clear brown color, ring of off-white head. Good dots and bits of lace. Very impressive, unique aroma. Some ginger? Brown sugar, chocolate, nuttiness. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet, kind of dry finish. Really tasty brown ale. A nice, though kind of soft, dry musty brown ale.
