COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark brown color, with a balanced aroma of roasted malts and Northwest-grown hops. The sweetness of the ale, crystal, and chocolate malts blend beautifully with the assertive flavors of Cascade and Mt. Hood hops.

MrFecesious (1191) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Shared bottle. Amber with quickly diminishing cap. Aroma of nuts, dark straw malt. Taste is soft sour dark malt. Roasty. Thins out dramatically. Too bad.

GT2 (9132) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Tap at Pelican brewpub. Pours a clear, cola brown. Medium foam with webby lacing. Nose is strawberry, sweet, moves to richer hazelnut and mild coffee roast. Taste is roasty, nutty, muted hop balance, mild bitter soil and earth. Slicker, oily palate. Really fantastic for style. This brewery knows how to execute the beer styles that are frequently overlooked.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Deep amber brown pour with a small white head. Aroma is grape cough syrup and light toasted malts. Flavor presents itself much better with toffee, light powdery chocolate and earthiness. Medium bodied with touch of sweetness. Pass.

jbruner (2817) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Pours a translucent reddish brown from the bottle with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma is medicinal, kind of like a grape cough syrup with a toasted malt back. Taste is much better than the nose, like a lagered brown, with a bubbly sweet mouth. Meh.

Bomber from Portland grocery. Pours dark brown with thin head...minimal lacing. Hints of chocolate / Caramel in nose and initial taste. Good to great brown ale.

SpringsLicker (3220) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pours a clear dark brown body with a tall, long lasting, frothy off-white head. Nutty aroma with caramel and a hint of smoke. The flavor is nutty and sweet on the front with a nice hop bitterness on the backside. Nice medium palate.

Fatehunter (1518) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Pours a nice finger of tan head on a clear, brown body. Aroma is a faint toasted malt. The taste is a roasted malt throughout, a little nutty and mild bitterness in the finish. Smooth texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. Great flavor and balance throughout. The smell was the only letdown for being so faint.

On tap at the brewery. Appeared very nice. Smell not so strong, taste good although I would have liked it a bit colder than served.
