Poured from tap. Pours a rich brown with red highlights, creamy off white head - leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma - subtle, but malt and chocolate are there. Taste - chocolate, malt, subtle hops, nice finish. Really nice brown.

Asheville, NC - Bruisin’ Ales - 12 oz bottle. Pours a deep chocolate-like dark brown with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma has some light chocolate accents, some nuttiness, a touch of licorice. Flavor is pleasantly sweet with some cocoa accents, a touch of licorice, a hint of molasses. Mouthfeel is a bit on the starchy side, but not a major detractor. Decent.

Bottle pour of dark copper with a fluffy off white head. Aroma of deep roasted chocolate malt with a hint of floral spice. Taste of sweet chocolate malt with a hint of spice that play of the carbonation that leads into an herbal earthy hop. Lively med body that dances on the tongue and finishes with a short herbal hop. Overall smooth drinking brown that is light enough for sipping anytime.

Nice looking brown pour with a light tan head. Roasted malt and slightly sweet smelling nose. Sweet malt taste fades to roasted malt and slight bitter chocolate and slight hop bitter finish.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 overly malty with hints of chocolate that feels unbalanced. The beer poured a bit flat as well, maybe just a bad experience

On tap at Tommy Condons. It poured a reddish/brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of nuts and some brown sugar. The taste was a little hoppy for a brown ale with a bitter aftertaste. Decent.
