Nice dark brown color. Sweet maltiness and light hop taste. Nice mouthfeel but I only wanted one. hotstuff (5210) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Draft-Big River Brewery-Chattanooga, TN. A small sized tan head that contained fine-medium sized bubbles. The body was uncarbonated, somewhat transparent with a brown hue. The nose was malty with a brown and malty flavor. The mouthfeel was tingly on the tongue and this was a medium bodied beer. thedm (6282) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 15, 2003
TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 9. This draft brew was enjoyed at the Big River Brewery in Chattanooga Tennessee which was hosted by a pleasant accomodating staff. The manager paid for our samples and even bought us appetizers to help clear our palates. This brew poured a small head of off-white colored foamy finely sized bubbles that left behind a semi-transparent brown colored uncarbonated body. It had avery mild dark malt aroma and the mnouthfeel was initially smooth and slightly tingly while finishing with a lingering mild brown tingle. The flavor contained some of the good brown malt notes to it but not enough to be real good. bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Pours a dark brown with a medium head. Light lacing. Aroma and flavor are malty and nutty with a tinge of chocolate. joet (2648) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2003

Had this with jgb9348 as well! Deep brown color with a not so impressive white head. Some malt and chocolate linger in the aroma. Chocolate and a nutty taste, and one of the better beers from the visit to the brewery in Chattanooga. jgb9348 (6397) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Brown colour with ruby highlight and a thin white head. A chocolate aroma with strong maltiness as well. Medium-bodied; Strong nuttiness, chocolate and malt tastes. Overall, better than the average brown (I style I typically don't like) and one of the best from the visit! I had this on draught at Big River (owned by Gordon Biercsh) in Chattanooga, Tennesse on 26-September-2003. aracauna (3637) - Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Nice mahagony brown body is topped by a nice, reserved head. The aroma is slightly vinuous with an interesting smokiness that I wasn't expecting. The hopping is very reserved, but still manages to be a surprisingly complex brown. TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2003
Easily tops their other beers (except for the House IPA) in character and flavor. Very true to style with a pleasing sweetness that's not overpowering. Reminds me of Sweet Georgia Brown from Sweetwater Brewing (although not quite as good). Dogbrick (13394) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Part of a sampler: Pours a dark brown color with a medium off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma is light malt with a nutty aspect. Medium-bodied with malt, brown sugar and hops flavors. Finish is equal parts malt and chocolate. Pretty good.
