The beer in the glass is dark brown with fine cream crown. It smells malty-roasty, slightly bitter and chocolaty. Starts very hoppy-bitter with some chocolate and roasted malts. The middle part is also hoppy-bitter, slightly caramel-chocolatey with some coffee. Goes into a coffee-roasted finish with a lot of chocolate!

12 fl.oz. Brown colour with a beige head with an average to low duration and good lacing. Aroma is malty, toasty, caramelish and berries. Flavor has notes of toasted malts, candy sugar and red fruits. The final is dry and with a moderate duration. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium to high.

Pretty tasty. Aroma is lacking some but the citra hops are really prevalent throughout which is interesting for a brown. Unique indeed. Not too shabby!

This brown has a wonderfully malty flavor. It doesn't tastes to heave but has a complexity none the less. A very good week made brown. It gets my seal of approval.

Pours beautiful brownish dark mahogany red with beige head. Robust aromas of toasted malt and a strange fruitiness make the beer hard to decipher. The taste is good, interesting but strange as well. The grain is prominent as a dark red near brown ale but there is a strange tart fruit flavor of cherries, apples, and light tropical fruits. The mouth feel it’s very smooth a bit grainy and dry in the finish. Strange lingering flavors as well, a little cardboardish, which may not be a good thing. Still simple and very enjoyable.

Dark mahogany color, beige creamy head. Caramel aroma (light) and flavor; overall it seems heavily oxidized; correct bitterness.

Bottle from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours an unclear honey-brown with a tannish head. Lots of spotty lacing. Aroma has brown sugar, toffee, some cocoa and a strange tannin odor (that normal Anchor-ness?). Taste is of sweet caramel, dark fruit, bread and some alcohol. Sticky. Very sweet. Finishes dry and somewhat short. Not too exciting - had better browns, and it is not that exciting a style to begin with.

Pours a dark brown colour with some head that stays for a bit, but not too long. Smells of hops, caramel and some citrus. Taste is also quite hoppy with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is quite low and isn’t too dry. In general this is quite a light beer with a stronger taste. Enjoyed this quite a bit!

Sötétebb, vörösesbarna színe van, amin egy alig hab van, ami gyorsan elillan. Erdei gyümölcslekváros, élesztős, kissé édeskés illata van. Íze is hasonlít az illatára, de van benne egy kis citrusos fanyarság és komlós kesernyésség is. Meglepően testes és kevés szénsavval rendelkezik. Utóíze is gyümölcsösen, citrusosan fanyarkás, keserédes és száraz. Nagyon üdítő jellegű sör.
