bottle thanks to mikem (i think). poured brown with a beige head and a few spots of lace. aroma was chocolate, caramel, toffee, and maybe the slightest bit of butter. flavor was pretty much the same as the flavor plus a slight bitter on the finish. body was medium-full with low carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark murky reddish-brown with a huge foamy cream head that lingers. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, with malt, dark fruits, sugar, wood. Taste of sweet malt, citrus hops, wood, dark fruits. Lingering sweet and hoppy. The bottle’s aged a bit too long, but still pretty tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From notes. First reviewed 1/31/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
The color of the beer is walnut brown, with a ruby tint in the edges of the glass. A creamy head with an eggshell hue forms initially, eventually fading to a ring and leaving a little lacing on the glass.
I am not really getting any dry hopped aroma. Roast malt, some molasses, and dark fruits - fig and raisin mostly, but a very modest aroma.
Molasses, plums and figs introduce the flavor up front, followed by some roasted malt and soft nutty flavors. There is a light citrus and spice kick at the end, but there is just not much hop presence here.
Good Humans is lightly sticky but mostly clean. Medium carbonation and a medium body.
I was expecting a dry-hopped brown ale, and I got mild dark fruit and much hop presence. Maybe this was just a bad bottle based on the other reviews, but there was almost no hop presence.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pretty reddish brown with thick steady cream head. Nose is metallic and lightly fruity. Flavor is sour, acetic cherry, more metal. It’s seriously infected. I know because I had this once before and it was not infected then and tasted more like a hoppy brown.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
What’s with the name? Bottle from SanChez in Grand Rapids, MI. Dark brown with a good head. Dark malty aroma with fruity hops. The taste is malty, with moderate hop taste, and some peppery spice. The aroma really elevates this beer to something greater than it would otherwise be; dry-hopping really made sense here. Sipped from a long tall glass, every sip was greeted with a delicious scent.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
beautiful reddish brown color. slightly sweet, with hops coming through nicely at the end. Definitely more of a brown ale than a hoppy beer, with a slightly sweet citrusy flavor that’s quite tasty at the end. Good beer to sip.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark caramel color, cloudy, very light thin head. Malty and hop aroma. Thick beer, not quite syrupy, finish doesn’t linger too long. The Brown ale dominates, but the hops also show through. Alcohol presence is clear.
