djd07 (15649) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that lasts the aroma is cocoa, licorice, raisin. Medium body, light roast, cream, nice sweetness, very good.

brokensail (16660) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 27, 2015
On tap @ Black Bottle. Dark brown in color with off-white foam. Bready malts and a lot of grassy hops. Sort of acidic, unfortunately. A little thin, too. Really herbal hop profile that I don’t particularly care for either. The flavor is just kind of thin and tangy and a bit on the abrasive side. Not a big fan.

Frank (4240) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2015
This is garnet brown in color w/ a foamy head. Its nose is mildly hoppy with a bit of toasty malt. It’s medium bodied w/ a nice woody pine hop character and some earthy bitterness in the finish. This is a medium bodied brew w/ mild carb and comes off a bit sweet and fruity in the end. This is a bit strong for a brown ale but still comes off pretty down-the-middle for the style.

Beaver (1853) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2015
From growler. Pours dark ruby brown with a medium creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.



The aroma is sweet cola malts and roast.



The flavor is sweet fruity nutty cola malt with a lot of bitter roast in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly watery.



Overall, a decent sweet roasty brown.

Tap. Kind of light fruity and boozy. Hmmm... That sounds longer the wrong up to an inappropriate comment. Not my fave, but not bad.

3.3
HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Growler from Black Bottle thanks to Chase. Appearance: light brown to khaki three fingers of head, deep brown color, clear. Aroma: light floral, very faint raisin or fruitiness, roast, light chocolate. Palate: soft carbonation, dry finish, medium full body. Taste: Sweet all the way through, but not cloying. Overall, great beer to drink a few in one sitting, but nothing to rave about.

cubs (10721) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a brown head. Bland, a bit grainy, caramel, lightly fruity aroma. Kind of sweet, lightly nutty, mild vanilla flavor with some fruity notes. Uninteresting, thin, a bit tangy, and bland to boot. I’m going to peg this legendary beer @ 4.5/1.399. Simply delightful.
