Bottle thanks to mixmasterob! Clear dark caramel colored pour, some thin lasting carbonation and an aroma of subtle earthy chocolate. Flavor is creamy sweet malt, leather and some very subtle coffee. Decent

Bottle from bleeng. Thanks!
Pours a nice, glassy amber with a nose of hairsprayed malt and light, roasted nuts. Flavor is hairsprayed grapefruit and light biscuit. Average mouthfeel. Tastes "off."

markwise (4424) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Thanks to Blazer06 for the share. Pours amber-brown with a white head. Nose is some roasted nuts, toasted malts, coffee, and hops. Flavor is similar with coffee in the front, hops, earth, and nuts throughout. Light to medium in body and not a bad brown ale.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 31, 2011
A: The beer pours a rather dark brown color with a bit of brown to it and a khaki head. S: Starts off with an intense rubbing alcohol aroma and burnt rubber/tires. Some toasted malt and nuts along with a little bit of chocolate. The beer finishes off with more booze and some chile pepper. T: Toffee and cherry cough syrup with a definite chile pepper flavor. Slightly spicy, but it’s more of the fresh/green pepper flavor. Hints of dark chocolate and strong metallic and booze notes. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Almost as bad as Invocation, but a different sort of bad.

HonusWagner (1315) - Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Thanks to Zack for bringing these two along, even though they were rather disappointing. Sweetish brown ale nose with phenol hints. Taste has some chlorophenols, a bit of sweet malt, just not particularly good.

MaltOMeal (1090) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2011

emarkd (97) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottled. Pours deep brownish red color with a nice beige head. Tons of bubbles rising in the beer keeps that head around all the way to the end. Great lacing. Aroma is fresh bread, nuts, caramel sweetness, coffee. Taste is quite complex with lots of the same tastes as the aroma with added notes of vanilla with a nice bitterness and a touch of metallic notes in the finish. Body is a little thin but creamy with lively carbonation. A very good first beer from this new local brewery.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Thanks to bleeng for bringing this beer. Pours a light red, brown color with no head. Roasty nose with some phenolics. Flavor is not very deep, maybe some sweetness...but not much going on.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Brown coloring with a a large brown head. The initial taste shows off the spiciness of the hops, but quickly in taken over by a strong sweet caramel malt flavor.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2011
12oz bottle. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours clear red/copper with a large light beige head that leaves some fantastic lacing and holds a good foamy cap.

Aroma is bread, toast, nuts, toffee, caramel, yeast, vanilla, oak, molasses, and some fruit. Very good strength.

Flavor is caramel, toffee, molasses, vanilla, toast/bread, some fruit, a little coffee, moderate sweetness, low bitterness, low alcohol.

Mouthfeel is on the full side of medium bodied, very soft and creamy.

An excellent Belgian-style Brown Ale, incredibly drinkable and tasty. Very impressive.
