$1.99 can from Total Wine, West Richmond. Pours cola-colored brown with a soft beige to tan head. Aroma is lightly smoky, definite chocolates, and some coffee. Flavor is incredibly smooth. Lightly sweet hazelnut, light milk chocolate, hints of creamy coffee, perhaps vanilla ice cream buried deep down. Wow. For a brown this is quite complex without being pretentious.

jjsint (2670) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2016
Can at the Columbia, Ybor City. Deep chocolate fudge brown with a bit of translucency. Large khaki head. Chocolate malt aroma with a metallic note and some caramel/toffee. Sweet taste with an earthy hop backdrop, supplying a medium to long bittersweet finish. Notes of cherry cola and chocolate in the aftertaste. Decent enough brown ale.

BlazerT (835) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Can. Sensoric. Deep brown with moderate, dirty white, semi-thick head. Poor head retention and lacing. Moderate malty aroma (caramel, bread, toffee), lightly roasted (chocolate), moderate toffee notes and light to moderate tobacco and woody accents. Lightly fruity. Taste is moderately sweet and moderately bitter, long and constant. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, finish is lightly bitter, semi-dry, astringent and woody. Summary: Brown ale is not very interesting, neither knocking down beer style, but this one is quite interesting. Rather simple in aroma and flavors, but everything is perfectly paired and balanced. The slightly woody and tobacco accents makes this more enjoyable. Podsumowanie: Niezłe Brown Ale, wyrżniające się ponad inne nutami tytoniu i beczki.

Thanks altonbrownd for the can! Poured into a wineglass showing rust brown with big thick translucent rims and a finger of tanned foam. The nose shows nice cigar-box like smokiness. This is very nice. The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors of moderately smoky malts with apple-like malts on the mid-palate. Finish shows light cigar tobacco and light astringency. Drinks very easy and with good flavor. I would never drink something this normally but am pleasantly surprised.

(from can) Near-zero head retention. No objectionable aromas, but not much aroma in general. Flat-tasting. Not good. Just a chocolate malt graininess and thin body. Tastes like below-average homebrew. Going to pour the whole sixer down the drain and I rarely do that. Date on can is 11/03/16.

On tap at BBF 2016. The aroma has caramel, nuts, earthy hops. Bit hazy, brown coloured beer with a medium sized off-white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter and has caramel sweetness, bit nuts, yeasty tones. Bit dull, but okay.
