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

Pours a deep, translucent copper with a thin, tan head that stays. Good lacing. Roasted, nutty aroma with hints of caramel and chocolate. Rich, full, creamy mouthfeel with subtle effervescence. Pleasant taste -- nutty with chocolate notes. A rather tasty representative of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for the Daystrom M-5

Bottle pour. Heavy on the head production for me. Airy mouthfeel. Slightly below average brown in my opinion.

TomTron (376) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours a dark brown with a thick, sudsy, off-white head. Aromas of brown sugar and caramel malts. Flavor is a bit creamy and the malts pretty much dominate, but it’s rather one dimensional and run of the mill. Drinkable, but forgettable.

Ok beer but very generic...nothing of note...very similar to everything else.. Very mundane

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Gusher. Had to sit this one on the sink on a 45 or so degree angle to allow the foam to come out at its own pace for a good half hour or so. Brown with a very large light beige head that sticks around forever. Aroma of brown sugar, nuts, grains, toffee and a metallic quality. Taste is metallic with light nuts and malt. Fizzy, slippery and chalky. Awful in most facets.

Big head over clear brown body. Aroma of sourness and cardboard. Taste sour and a bit roast. Spoiled.

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Roasty nut aromas with a touch of caramel or burnt sugar. Deep brown with an off white cap. Roast bitterness with a subtle sweetness. Medium bodied with bittersweet finish.

Leafs93 (1683) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours deep dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, dark chocolate and some roast. Taste is sweet with roast bitters on the finish. Medium bodied with thin mouth feel.

BVery (6301) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Bottle from Total Wine & More in McLean, VA. Murky brown pour with a little sediment. Small white head. Palate is a little thin, and the flavor features a bit of artificial tasting chocolate. Not a great beer.

Dogbrick (8144) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Pours a dark brown color with a slight reddish tinge around the edges. Medium thick beige head that dissipates slowly. Partial sheets of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of roasted malt and slight hops. Light body with flavors of chocolate, sweet malt and a touch of hops. The finish is short with a grainy malt aftertaste. Barely average overall.
