From a bottle and yes it is brown. Taste and aroma have a little of that Pgh blast furnace slag aroma and taste going on. Easy and clean, not sure its really 6%, if it is, it hides the alky well. Yes, not bad for a dark beer in this time of terrible imperial stouts. Good job on this nice balanced dark beer thank you.

Pours a cloudy ruby red with a foamy tan head. Aroma is bready with a note of chocolate. The taste is sweet with a nice earthy dryness. Creamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep mahogany colored beer with a medium foamy light tan head. Fairly sweet nose even for a brown ale with candied nuts, caramel, and milk chocolate. Flavor follows with some medium roast coffee, peanut brittle, and brown sugar finishing with a mild bitterness. Good beer, if a little sweet.

Very dark, slight red hue.. foaming head. Smell of malt, slight metallic notes with chocolate. Taste is solid, chocolate malts, creaminess.. a little bitter, a bit thin. It’s a very good brown ale.

Muddy brown ale. Slight malt sweetness smell to it, no distinguishing smell. Roasted flavors but not very over powering.

Pours a very dark chestnut brown color with faint mahogany edges and a frothy, one finger off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Toasted dark malt aroma with subtle roasted coffee, caramel, toffee and cocoa. There’s a faint grassy hop presence but the nose is dominated by subtle roast and caramel malt sweetness. On the lighter end of medium bodies with a flavor profile that’s very similar to the aroma. There is a very delicate, crisp hop bite up front but the dominant flavors here is slightly roasted sweet malt. Hints of caramel, toffee and nut countered by autumnal spice and toasted bread. Not very complex but pleasant enough and easy to drink.
