Draft at Paradiso Georgetown. Pours a dark walnut color with a small, light cream colored head. Nose and flavor bring nice dry hop bite balancing sweet caramel and nutty malt, as well as touches of chocolate and roast. Some lactic cream present as well. Unfortunately this is still a brown ale so it can only be so good, but this is about as good as it could be. dogfish120love (1331) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Pours a moderately dark brown. Notes of chesnut, chocolate coffee an toffee. Palate is semi sweet and by no means cloying. MaBeer1972 (2059) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 25, 2012
22 oz bottle from Julios. Pours out very good looking. Medium frothy head. A clear medium brown brew. Very smooth at first (too cold, no flavor). Let it warm a while. Light nutty aromas. Slightly tangy fruit notes. Sweet malts. Well balanced and very quaffable. Slighty dry and bitter finish. hallinghansen (3192) - Odense SV, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2012

I had this from a 22oz bomber
This brown pour has a creamy off white head, with very nicely balanced toasty and malty flavors.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2016 2/16. actually dropped from a 3.0 one of my favorite styles and now that this is local wanted to try again - disappointing. I find nothing even average in taste............................................. purch in CA and drank during brown tasting.. in a word average. slight aroma of toffee and nut; nice brown pour and dirty beige head. mouthfeel was on thin side. flavor was mild version of aroma.. meh bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very cola with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is quite chocolate. There’s a little greasy nuttiness floating around. Med + body. Fizzy/foamy carb. Flavor is a little nutty - pecan? - greasy with some dark chocolate and I think bitter roasted/nigh burnt malt. Seems fresher than most browns. Definitely dry, and arguably somewhat astringent. And earthy after a bit. Had to slow down to get that. This drinks really easily. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 Bottle... Mostly clear, burnt-caramel ale with a mid-sized, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Great retention. The aroma furnishes a malty intermingling of dark chocolate, singed toffee and roasted nuts. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is balanced nicely, presenting bittersweet notes of mocha, toasted almonds and caramel. Finishes chocolaty and roasty. Bottle courtesy of richiesd!
