Bomber from LetsPour.com. Pours dark brown with a slight creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate over some moderately roasted malt. Med body. Flavor is nutty and chocolaty with that standard "brown" malt flavor. It finishes dry and rather bitter.

On tap at Schooner Exact, pours a clear dark amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out dry cocoa, milk chocolate, and toasted nuts. Flavour is smooth, with notes of milk chocolate and hazelnut. Toasty, nutty and chocolatey, with a dry palate. Very solid stuff - much more interesting than typical brown ales.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a medium khaki head that diminishes slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Light-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, roasted nuts and a bit of hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Draft at celtic bayou. Pours a murky dark brown with a loose and lightly sudsy tan head. Lots of drippy lace. Nice caramel nose, a little molassesy, great power and balance to it. Super nice to see in a brown. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel and toasty brown bread on the mid palate with a nice earthy, slightly peaty finish. Best new brown in a while.

Bottle:   Deep brown, thin to moderate off-white head, little lacing.   Cocoa start, sweetened coffee, lots of creamer, seems a bit dry.   Maltly start, cocoa, sweet roasted malts, lots of sugar and cream in this one.   Not a hoppy example, but not overly malty either.   Decent balance, smooth, sweet, not overly roasted either.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with lots of cocoa, a bit nutty too.   Enjoyable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasty, nutty nose, somewhat sweet, chocolatey and fruity as well with some piney/garlicy hops. Pours dark brown with a thinnish beige head. The flavor is roasty up front, chocolate and fruity sweetness on the mid palate followed by piney bitterness. Nice lingering roasty/hop note. Interesting take on style, hoppy american brown. Enjoyable.
