COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional English-style brown ale, but with more body. Its deep brown color comes from a combination of Chocolate and Black malts. Tall, dark and smooth – the perfect cure for the domestic beer blahs. 5.6% abv

Finhead (1147) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2010
A medium brown pour with off-white head. A malty aroma with some mild chocolate notes. The taste is lively with semi-sweetness and a medium body. The finish is fairly dry, a little astringent, and surprisingly bitter.

Light brown color. Thin head. Nut, roasted aromas. Dry finish. Surprising bitterness on the back end. Wears down over the course of a pint.

decaturstevo (4872) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Brown/red pour with very light off white head and lace. Aroma of roasted malt and light chocolate. Flavor is light chocolate with a hint of sweet. A bit thin and fizzy, but very drinkable.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep, acorn brown with a thin tan head. Malty, slightly woody aroma with a hint of hops but not too much there. Flavor is light and crisp with a a bit of chocolate malt and a bit of a hoppy bitter finish, but much like the aroma there isn’t much to it. The best thing about RJ Rockers’ brews are their patriotic names.

bubbleflubber (1746) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2009
On draught at the High Country Beer Fest, it pours a nut brown into the glass, with a creamy tan head that leaves window-wash lacing. The nose is nice, of chocolate malt and roasted, toasty notes. The flavors follow somewhat in tow, with a malty front, maybe some hints at dry-roasted almonds mid-palate, and closes a bit bitter toward the finish. The mouthfeel is thinner and light-bodied, with aggregate carbonation. Decent brew, but doesn’t stand apart from the "brown ale" crowd as anything special.

ben4321 (3765) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from Brickskeller, 7/31/09

Aroma: Nice malty nose, caramel, honey, chocolate, toasted malts
Appearance: Nice brown color, clear, tan head
Flavor: Like the nose, malty sweetness up front, sweet, roasted characteristics too
Palate: A bit watery/thin, decent mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I’d seen this one in the store a few times, but never bought it. This beer is fair, I would like a bot more body in a brown, but it had a decent taste, and a nice enough nose.

First rating from the great state of South Carolina, bottle sampled at Brickskeller in DC. Clear medium brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is malt and a little chocolate. Flavor is caramel malt, brown sugar, nuts, and a little chocolate. A little thin on the palate. Average overall.

haddon90 (1429) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours a mild brown color with a thin, lacing head. A little malt with a hint of brown sugar in the aroma. Crisp, with a little bite to the malt. Some caramel, brown sugar, and a hint of molasses as well. But I think it’s a little light for a brown since all of the notes weren’t that strong.
