On tap at the brewpub. Clear dark amber pour with a an off white head. Malty aromas. Loads of malts and grains. Some roasty backbeats. Good body and mouthfeel. Cybercat (6046) - Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a clear mahogany-amber - pale buff head is thin, but that may be the ay it was poured. Malty aroma has earthy and cinnamon hints. Flavor starts with a malty core and adds notes of cinnamon and horehound, as well as an earthy hint. Mouthfeel is fairly firm and somewhat fizzy. A good stunt.

On tap at the Thirsty Monk. Clear, gold color, with a small, beige head. The aroma is resin, some light earth, butterscotch, and cereals. Sweet flavor up front, with very little hop bitterness. Light to medium body, syrupy, and clingy. Overall, this is a weak brown ale.

Beer #8 Asheville trip. Not my favorite. Medium brown, decent head. Light malt aroma. Flavor is just sort of random caramel accented malts and vaguely earthy hops. Didn’t really strike me as a brown. Just sort of hit me as an "ale." Just kind of there. Shag (3041) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Brown appearance with a white head. Aroma contains some caramel and nutmeg. Flavor is standard brown ale fare withsome nuttiness and caramel. Overall its pretty good maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Poured an amber color with a small head. I got a slight nuttiness to this one, and found it a fairly easy drink. GnarlyGnome (770) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Draft, sampler: it’s a nice brown color with an off white head. Aromas are a little lacking, slightly sweet. The flavor is a little roasty, but thin.
