hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2011
DraftÖ Clear, deep, dark copper ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The restrained bouquet is quite nutty without much else going on. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with soft carbonation. The roasty flavor leans a smidge toward the bitter side, but is smooth and well-balanced overall. A bit nutty and a touch thin. Finishes crisp and very mildly bitter. A little too crisp and refreshing for the style. Personally, I like a little meat on my brown aleís bones.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, nuts and a faintly hoppy finish. The taste is very tart with notes of berries, citrus and nutty notes. Medium bodied. Seems like something might be wrong with this one.

On tap into a shot glass. Appearance is a dark, translucent brown with a beige head. Aroma is malts and coffee. Taste follows suit. Coffee comes throughout magnificently. This is my favorite of the sampler I got while at the brewery. I would say this is their best by a good bit.

On tap at Morgantown Brewing Company on 10 March 2010. Attractive clear chestnut colour with a red tinge. Quite smoky aroma. Some nutty notes. Slight odd medicinal TCP notes in the flavour. Otherwise OK.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a moderately dark brown color with faint red highlights and a small tan head. The aroma was faint dry and roasty malts. The flavor was dry, roasty and nutty with touches of wood and apple. The finish was medium length dry malts. A bit thin in body. Eh.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Enjoyed on tap at the brewery in a sampling glass. The beer pours a deep brown color, with a mild off-white head. Aromas of dark chocolate and subtle roasted malt to the nose. The palate is straightforward and fairly uneventful. Dark chocolate, ash, and a very slight roasty character come through. Bitterness is present, but not to such an extent that a particular variety of hop really shines through. Overall, a straightforward, if somewhat simple, English-style brown.
