Dark brown, heavy aroma of coffee/chocolate, smooth hint of oak, no trace of alcohol, with a thick & silky mouthfeel from the lactose. My absolute favorite brown ale.

Bottle. Somewhat murky brown pour with a smaller white head. Great aroma and taste of coffee, sweet cream, and mild roasted malt. Not sure I’m picking up the oak, but it may be that the coffee is covering it up. Nonetheless - brown ale? Excellent example of the style.

Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen. Pours a deep reddish orange appearance with a light brown head. Toasted malt, biscuit, caramel, grass, and some herbal bitterness in the nose. Medium body. Some nutty flavors with caramel and bread. A little too bitter. Ehh.

Bottle while at Max Lager’s in Atlanta. Pours dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma of piney hops, roasty malts, some interesting spice notes. Flavor is rather in your face with big hop bitterness, lots of roast, and what tastes almost like chili spice. Very interesting and unique. Medium body, pretty easy drinking for nearly 9%. Overall a brew worth trying.

12oz bottle, purchased 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Bottled 2/2015. Very dark brown, near-black color. Good finger of tan head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Nice coffee, roast malt, chocolate in the aroma. Big nuttiness, toasty. Touch of caramel and dark fruit. Cocoa nib. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, kinda tingly. Light slick body, then a touch dry in the finish. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter. Sort of creamy. Solid imperial brown. Hides the alcohol alright, aside from a bigger body. Not too sweet, good balance to the taste. Great to enjoy with my sandwich.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Clear amber brown color, 1/2" ivory head, a few dots of lace. Taste is strong oakey caramel malt with carbonation and a bittered finish. Strong in a bitter-edgy way that doesn’t suit my palate very well. Okay, but not a lot of appeal.
