The most local beer I've ever tasted, so I may have a bit of bias, but nonetheless I'm super proud of this local small brewery. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 28, 2013
22 oz. bomber from Nugget Market in Woodland. It pours a nice dark brown color with a creamy tan head. The aroma is very toasty/roasted with light notes of cocoa and floral/woody notes. The flavor is intense with roasted malt, woody/floral hops, some cocoa and light notes of molasses. Really intense flavor for a brown ale. Good use of hops. No citrusy stuff going on here, just good earthy, woody floral hops to complement the toasted/roasted malt. Very nice creamy mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this one. timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Taster at Whole Lotta Brews going on at Whole Foods in Folsom. Coffee-forward almost porter. Pretty damn good beer for a brown. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle thanks to timfoolery: Poured deep dark brown with a huge never ending light brown head. Aroma is herbal and malt. Taste is light metallic, nutty, and malts. brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 18, 2013
On tap @ American River. The pour is dark brown with a khaki head. Roast forward nose with some cocoa, coffee, and bitter chocolate. Some earthy hops in the background. A touch bitter on the palate. Dark chocolate, coffee, and plenty of roasted malt. Mild tea, cocoa powder, earth, and a hint of licorice.

On tap at Limelight. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is mild but mostly chocolate with a touch of roasted malt. Flavor is dark chocolate with some mild bitterness and a nice roasty character as well. Medium bodied with a fairly creamy mouthfeel. Overall this was a really good brown ale!
