Almost a nutty taste with coffee as the finisher. This brew is alright. This is just a filler now. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Nice light brown color, but not much else stands out for me. Just your average pour, imo.

Very smooth! Light for a brown. A hint of hippiness from the first sip or two. Tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (8363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2015
2oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly clear amber brown color. Good thin off-white head. Nutty nose, touch of dark fruit, a little vanilla. Toasty in the flavor. Medium body. Smooth, kind of creamy lighter carbonation. Very light dry finish. Some chocolate. Light to moderate sweet taste, light bitter, satisfyingly dry finish. A pretty solid english-style brown.

Imaena (2038) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle. This is a really malty and thick brown that is quite sweet. I like this style a little thinner and easier drinking.

DocJitsu (1202) - Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Brown with a creamy, light tan head. Light toasted malt and faint fruit on the nose. Smooth and full. Roasty flavor with quite a bit of sweetness that is cut by bitterness.

pumpmaster (1266) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2015
12 ounce bottle from tackle box purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL. Not bad.

degbert (1346) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a light, clear brown with red highlights and a sticky, fine-grained light tan head. Nose is molasses, port wine, smoke, beef broth, black tea. Smoky and savory up front; definite classic brown ale notes, though a little hollow in the middle. Not much sweetness at all, though there’s a little burnt sugar on the finish. Not bad.

Your basic run-of-the-mill stale chocolate muffiin brown ale but from Georgia.
