Pours a dark brown with a creamy head. Nice hop taste with brown sugar and roasted malt. michcam8 (567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Enjoyable brown ale. Smooth tasting, with a hop forward, malty backbone. Not much detection of alchol. Excellent beer that would recommend to others. rejtable (2767) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2012
Really, really like this one. Nose is roasted cereal and maybe maple syrup. Aromas in the mouth are roasted malt, maybe some maple syrup or brown sugar, and some great pine in the finish. Tastes are strong sweet start and through the middle, and a strong-ish bitter finish. Medium oily body in the mouth with lively carbonation. Pours breakfast tea brown with an initial huge foamy head that dissipates to a nice light tan covering and some lacing. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Very good. The nuttiness comes through the hops. I prefer More Brown Than Black however.

Bottle. Medium brown with an exuberant beige head that resembled a soufflé and lasted forever. Aroma was intense pine hop character and rich underlying toffee. The burnt sugars really play strongly on the palate, and the malt sructure is dense, providing excellent support for the aggressive piney hops. Fantastic! I could drink Stone beers forever....

Love this Collab! Aroma is full of hops with a great dark amber/brown appearance. Lacing and clarity are good as well. Super hoppy with a nice molasses and brown sugar finish. Gonna find more of this and More Brown Than Black while I can! Thisis12ptfont (1199) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Aromas of oats, nuts, bread and some coffee undertones. Deep brown appearance with no foam. Taste is slightly bitter hops upfront, quickly followed by complex flavors of nuts, cereal, barley and subtle coffee. Very thin texture with masked carbonation. Overall, a fantastic brew with tons of impressive flavors. The best brown ale i’ve ever tasted. I’d give it an A+ rating. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2012
Dark brown and a little cloudy pour, nice creamy head, smells like molasses and a little toasty..tastes a little bitter upfront and sweet on the back end. Awesome beer, another great collab from Stone and friends! grimreaperguru (263) - santee, California, USA - APR 30, 2012
Pours a very dark amber color with a thick off white head.The aroma was of a strong pine hop sent with toasted malt.The taste was a smooth bitter hop flavor with a sweet note to it.Goes down smooth with a nice bitter aftertaste.Overall Stone dose it again. wlajwl (6884) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Aroma is piney hops and a hard to place quality. The flavor is malts, pixie sticks like sugar-sweetness and the hops come back in the finish.
