Pours brown with a creamy beige head. Nice lacing. Grapefruit, over-ripe oranges, hazelnut, mocha, coffee, and an earthy dankness. Smooth nutty brown ale with an aggressive hop kick. Medium body and carbonation with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Interesting and unique brown ale... Definitely worth a try.

mar (4778) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Tap. Deep brown practically black with a khaki head. Nose is bursting with pine, citrus and florals. Smooth palate, dash of roasted malts, citrus, light pine, florals, and a hint of chocolate.

So dark brown looks black. Tan filmy head. Spicy malt aroma. Flavors of hoppy bitter brown malts. Complex. Minimal sweetness.

Dr_Fellini (353) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Draft. Pours a deep brown color with a thin creamy light brown. Aroma is a light toasty malts, and lots of hop character, floral, tropical fruits, mild pine. Flavor is light toasty sweetness, also some hoppy sweetness, not much bitter. Thick creamy palate. Lingering toasty malts and strange hop character. Interesting beer. Not a brown ale, not an IPA, maybe somewhere in the middle?

Luvystypotables (532) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2014
An IPA like aroma of hops and grapefruit, a good looking dark brown beer, with a rich creamy head. Taste of grapefruit and hops with an oily mildly bitter finish.

deanso (5024) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2014
On tap @ brewdog Sheffield. Thin creamy tan head. Clear black pour. Lovely bitterness. I agree with the gentleman from Brum. It’s a black ipa.

jmgreenuk (4009) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2014
Tap at Brewdog Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is dry earthy light grass hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a strong grass nettle hop light mint palate and a long mint bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I can’t say that I agree it’s a brown ale. It’s more like a flat black IPA for me. Too many hops for a brown ale but I’m not complaining!

rougeau13 (1942) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Very nice hoppy brown. Nose of tropical fruit, earth, pine, and toast. Nice balanced flavor with a nice abundance of hops unusual for the style. Medium bodied.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap @ Yard House Costa Mesa. Chestnut colored pour with an off-white head. Really interesting hoppiness. Lots of tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango. Pleasant roasted malt, cacao, and toasted bread. Reminiscent of a black IPA on the nose and tongue. Moderate roast and dark chocolate/cacao notes. Fairly bitter, but a slight toast sweetness and plenty of tropical fruit.

kidobutai (290) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2014
Part of a six-pack sampler at Yard House Virginia Beach. Beautiful dark black, nice lacing. Toasted nut aroma, but the first thing I tasted was licorice. Coffee and chocolate as well.
