COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The complexity of this beer is fantastic. Rich, but not too heavy on the palate, semi-sweet dark fruit finish.

Bottle at Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne. Dark black body with medium tan head. Nose is malty, and caramel, and nuts. Taste is roasty and chocolate. Smooth finish. Decent.

SpringsLicker (3438) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Can from Publix. Very dark, almost opaque, brown body with a tall, puffy light tan head. The aroma has dusty chocolate, nutty, sweet. The flavor has some light sweetness but much less in the flavor department than what the aroma hinted at. Decent body but this fall short.

12 oz can poured. Pours very cola like in color and fizz head. Aroma is metallic up front, with some toasted malt. Heavily metallic flavor, covering a decent roasted malt and grape fruit finish. Overall flavor isn’t bad, but the metallic element is too much to ignore, and makes the beer overall strange. Still, easily drinkable, and not bad.

Nekronos (4056) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 2, 2016
Quite strong and a little thick but enjoyable. Not so brown, looks more as a Schwarz but not in the taste.

Dominant brett character all the way through. Not much brown ale chacter underneath.

can. Pours an almost black color with a medium-sized creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt along with some chocolate and coffee. Sweet flavor, big chocolate notes along with some roastiness. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate. I really enjoyed this.

TXBadger (2496) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Pours a dark brown color with tan colored head. Nuts, roasted malts and some hints of dark fruit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with nuts and caramel.

lobosaintori (89) - - DEC 11, 2015
Decent brown ale. Pours dark cola in color with a decent tan head. Perhaps a little under carbonated. Smells of milk chocolate and cocoa. Taste is creamy cocoa and a touch of mocha. Nice on the palate. No bitterness. Smooth finish.

Aurelius (5032) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Sweet, fruity, figgy-vinous aroma. Fair can. Big light tan head, cascading pour, deep cola brown, clear. Goes absolutely flat, medium bodied. Roasted edge, dark syrup, bocky notes. Dark straw flavors, dubble-esque, moderately sweet, not bitter. Vanilla notes, cocoa notes, a little Redman. Not what I’m looking for in a brown. ABC Liquors, Betton.

I asked the bartender at the brewery if this was a Porter. He replied, "it’s an ale." I said, "Porters are ales." His response, "I guess you could call it a Porter." 20.6 srm; 29.6 IBUs Brown color where light does pass through the center of the glass. Some ring lace to the otherwise minimal head. Lots of milk chocolate aroma. Sweet and dark. Some caramel. Taste mimics the nose, perhaps with a little more mocha. Above average body with a below average level of carbonation. Smooth. There’s some sweetness and an element of liqueur to the taste.
