An ok brown. Their amber is much better. Pours a nice golden brown, almost whiskey color. Light smell, a little fruity. Taste is a little boring, has an empty taste. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown. Smells like yogurt. Very sweet and berry like. Quite spice and clove forward. like a steeped tea. Maybe creamy. Malt is dry and lovely. It’s nice. Not mind blowing

On tap @ Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. Light brown pour with an off-white head. Toasted malt, a hint of roast, and a light vegetal note. Mildly acidic, too. Flavor is kind of acidic, bitter, and dry. A lot of toast, some roast, and vegetal hops. A lot of carrot and celery. Weird.

This brown ale is surprisingly thin for a brown. Thin mouthfeel. Disappointingly weak, do not buy

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Courtesy of Pailhead. Dark brown, transparent. Big roast up front, light coffee through the middle and finish. Flavor much the same, roast, coffee, not much else. Slightly metallic finish.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2010
Bottle purchased in Torrance, California with nothing to pour it in. Nose: Toasted pumpernickel bread, fresh red spring wheat flour, malty powdercake. Taste: Powerful and rich burning malt. pistacho, dusty cocoa powder. Not overly long on the finish and composed of chocolate. Silty mouth feel.

I’m wondering if I have a different batch than some of the recent reviewers. 22oz bottle from a sweet west coast hook up. A bit of wood, earth, and nut in the aroma. The flavor has some toasty malt and caramel working. The finish has a faint roasted bitterness to it. Pretty sessionable beer and not half bad.
