On-tap at PP C’Bad. Pours a medium brown colorwith a moderate off-white head, some lace. Smells of subdued toasty malts. Tastes malty, roasty and earthy hoppy, slight caramel flavors. Very complex flavors, a little ashy-ness in there as well much like Abyss. Medium body, dry, smooth carbonation.

decaturstevo (5741) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 25, 2007
On tap at PPC. Solid deep amber pour with no head or lace. No nose to speak of but no bad aromas. Maltiness with a slight hint of sulphur but nothing that really takes away more than a tad. Thin and foamy but again right on the edge of being better than it is. A decent drinker but not special for me.

On tap at Pizza Port. Clear reddish brown with fizzy off-white head. Grainy malty aroma. Slightly bright palate. Sweet malty taste, bready, hint of nuts, nothing much of a finish.

On draft...really nice aroma for being such a small brew. --- Taste was similar with a hint of coffee and chocolate. Rather malty and nice mouthfeel...impressive brown ale!

wow excellent brown ale, very flavorful and gives you a good buzz, alcohol very well masked, pours a deep brown with small tan head, goes down smooth, very impressive, one of the better brown ales i have had!

Pours with a reddish-brown body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet and malty with a slight roastiness, a little anise and a hint of hops. Medium to full bodied and tingly on the tongue.
