Bottle. Dark brown with minimal head. Big roasty malt aroma, molasses, ashy and maple syrup. Taste is fairly sweet, but doesnít linger. Body is lighter with a bubbly cola feel.

Pours a clear, dark, reddish brown-black, with good-sized head. Fresh aroma, with some floral notes, some hops, maybe a bit of soap. Flavor contains all of these, with some malt, coffee, chocolate. Almost verging over into porter or stout territory, this one.

I think this one should definitely have more than a 65 average score. While itís not the absolute most superior Brown ale Iíve had, it is still very tasty. Nice body of malt and roasty flavor that is sweet but not overbearing with no bitterness to speak of. Very refreshing.

Gusher. Fuck you, @@-Ron. 12oz bottle. Pours a light brown/deep Amber with a gushing head. Aromas of toffee and German yeast esters. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter. Some grassy notes, but mostly itís just sweet dumpster juice. Finishes with a ashy note that is way out of place. No.

Very enjoyable brown. There are those who are more partial to malts in this variety. And those who are more partial to hops. I am the former. This is the former. Good.
