Brown with a light brown head. Aroma is generic. Nothing you look for in a brown ale or anything for that matter. Maybe construction paper. The flavor was probably sucked out of this one and added to there Imperial Stout. That is my only explanation for why this tastes like crap. Pure garbage.

RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Smoky taste, roasty, a little chocolately bitter. Heavy for a brown ale. Darker color, minimal head.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Deep copper brown, clear body with average tan lacing head. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet hops, yeast and a hint of chocolate. Roasted malt, light coffee, hint of chocolate in the flavor. Smooth palate.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle. Amber-brown body with moderately high carbonation and a foamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toasty malt plus toffee and sweet milk chocolate. Flavor is of caramel, chocolate, dark fruit skins, earthy hops and a touch of smoke. Medium-thin to medium body. Gets a little stale and cloying, but basically a decent quality brown ale that paired well with some buffalo jerky. Feel free to put that last part in the next edition of your book Garrett.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Had on tap @ Pizza Joint. Much darker than most brown ales... this knocks the socks off of New Castle. Has a nice frothy tan head. Slightly sweet, but not too sweet. Great black malt at the start, and finishes with a sweet but a slight hop to prevent the sweetness from being too much. Excellent Brew

beerbill (3615) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, dark brown with a thin to moderate head that disappeared somewhat quickly. Light caramel aroma. Flavor is caramel and lightly roasted malt. I didnt get any of the creaminess listed in the description. Ok, but not great.

GTown (127) - New York, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Draught and bottle. Heavier on the hops than other browns. Chocolate and coffee come through nicely. Smooth mouthfeel. A very decent brown ale.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2005
After sniffing a couple of times one is able to detect a hint of nutmeg infused in the aroma. This beer is bronze in color and hosts a good head. This beer enters the mouth smoothly and with a soft tingle as a mild bitterness creeps in. To finish, this beer leaves a nutty taste lingering on the tongue.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Bottle-Poured deep deep red w/light brown head, almost looked like a root beer. Had a nice malty flavor w/traces of chocotate & molasis. Had some hops to back it up, but didnt overpower the flavor. Nice balance, long finish, I enjoyed it. Refreshing, I would drink this again.

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2005
On tap at the Flying Saucer. Bark brown with no head to speak of. Aroma was so light, but part of it may have been the smoky bar. Flavor was also barely there. Just sweet, sort of nutty, and light. Finished very clean, with a hint of nut. 84th percentile? Really? This was just sort of boring to me. Id rater have a Newcastle if I was gonna go brown. Not bad, just sorta bland.
