On tap at the brewpup in Eureka, CA. A nice nutty brown ale, done true to a style that I enjoy. The commercial description is correct, it "is dark in color without the heavy taste of porter or stout." Therefore, a correct and tasty brown.

Worst Label from a cmpany full of terribly cheesy labels. Just awful. Cola colored with a fizzy, foamy tan head. Chocolatey malty nose. Thin and watery with some dry chocolate pie notes. Grainy at the finish. Strange bad coffee flavor in the aftertaste. Alcohol is present which is pretty unacceptable at 5%abv!

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Dark garnet color. Huge tan frothy head. More porter than a brown ale. Some chocolate notes. Slight citrus. Smooth. Malty. Decent mouthfeel. Flavor is nothing special but is satisfying. Some hints of roasted coffe and chocolate but only hints. A decent brew.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Brown with a small head. Aroma is roasted malts and smoke. More like a porter than a brown really, but not bad.

Wow, was I surprised by this beer! By no means is this the greatest brown ale in the world, but it ain’t bad at all. A great balance of malt and hops. I would try this beer again.

nja (17) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 15, 2004
Tasted in June ’03 at the brewery and said: "Quite light in color and body for a brown ale. Aromas of coffee and caramel. I not usually a fan of browns, but this one I really liked. The waitress said it was the locals’ favorite." Tried again June ’04 in bottles. Much less impressed. Basically, there’s nothing bad about it, but not much good either. Dark brownish red color, little head. Not much aroma, little hops or malt, basically just not a lot of flavor. Very gulpable, easy to drink.

Ruby colored brown with roasted malty taste. Smooth and drinkable, this beer has a nice flavor and goes down smooth and easy. Not too hoppy or malty nice balance of flavors that makes for a very tasty beer.

decent medium dark porter/brown ale, good smooth head and creamy lacing lasting for a moderate period. Smooth and smoky in the mouth.

05.25.04 Med brown. Little head. Light malt aromas, slightly roasty, rubber(?). Tastes light and roasty, light coffee, some astringency. More like a porter to me than a brown as it’s not so sweet. Good stuff, though from this land of hop-monsters.

Tap@Lost Coast. Not a style i usually like, but this works well. Drier than most browns, like roasted chocolate, with some tangy hops, pretty easy to get into.
