Light bodied murky brown ale, with earthy, cocoa and dry fruit flavors coming through. My palate couldn’t bring the competing flavors together, understood the concept but the sum of the parts was never cohesive for me.

callmemickey (3005) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2014
Brackish brown body, medium to thin pale tan head, spotty lacing. Mild I fection as there is some tart green apple qualities that cannot be intentional. Otherwise, toffee, caramel, brown bread, and nutiness. Medium to thin bodied, slick carbonation, smooth finish.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Can. Nose is nutty and strongly fruity over a roasty base with preliminary hints of nice char. Some yeast character, too. Heat is dense-foamy as if poured with nitrogen, jiggles like Orval, that over a rich, beautiful deep brown. Medium body, lightly tart and even a touch acrid, low bitterness with rounded grain and light toasted character; slightly nutty, fruit toned down, and only semi-sweet. Just a touch of char. Malt accents, hops don’t stand out, just a short tip of the balance toward M. Flavor seems a bit watery with volume, but then again, there’s a point to it -- really nailed the session factor.

boxofrane (2255) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft at beer fest. Pours clear copper with a small white head. The aroma has some coffee beans. The taste is light coffee and tons of water.

joeneugs (3478) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 26, 2013
12 oz bottle. It pours a very dark orange/brown color with a towering, fizzy tan head that takes up most of the glass. I was worried about infection with the size of the head. The aroma is very volatile with some dried leaves, apple, cocoa. The flavor is roasted with some mild coffee and tart apple notes. It froths up majorly in the mouth. Kind of unpleasant.

reggiedunlop (3217) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Pours chestnut with a thin off white head. Aroma has chocolate, dry leaves, and earthy hops. Flavor follows suit and adds some toasty caramely notes. Mouthfeel is light and silky and the finish is earthy/roasty with a hint of chocolate.

Firkin at Real Ale. Cloudy reddish amber with thin beige head. Notes of sweet and lightly roasted dark malts. Ok

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Draft at Blue Dog Lansdale and Capone’s. Pours copper with minimal off-white head. Nose was roasty malt, mild hops, fruit. Tastes malty, with subdued hops, mild fruit, and mild earthy flavor hints in the finish.

NikkTwist (1745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Draft at Tattooed Mom. Dark orange brown with a slight foamy head that disappeared completely. Supposedly an answer to the Philly local Yards Brawler (which is a decent dry brown ale.) This one has a glossier edge. Mild malt flavors. Sweeter than the Yards but not nearly as sweet as many traditional brown ales (i.e. Newcastle.) Some fruitier red fruit notes here. Fuller in flavor than most brown ales, but thinner in body. Some bright notes. Nothing offensive. Nice enough for a session beer, but the Brawler is better.
