Growler. So fucking dark brown w/ a deep khaki head; its almost stouty. Slight roast & toast w/ dark fruity hints. Stouty. Chewy and beautifully complex, but still very drinkable. Thumbs up all the way.

Near black pour, good sized head. Char, dark chocolate, rye in the aroma. Slightly smoky. Dark chocolate and rye bread up front, woody, charred malt, lighter spicy note. Medium body, smoky aftertaste.

Part of Local Flight at Craftmen Taphouse, Charleston. Really solid for a brown -the style stuck in no mans land. Pours nice brown, not much head. Suprised how much the coffee notes come through, but nice earth, roast and chocolate in there as well. Medium mouthfeel. Hint of spice from the rye. Somewhat off flavor/ dryness in the finish. Decent, especially for a brown.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Draft at Coast. Deep brown pour with a frothy tan head. Chocolatey aroma with roasted nuts, snappy rye spices, coffee, and cocoa nibs. Flavor is similar with a rounded body that boasts more chocolate, toasted rye bread, caramel and coffee. So good and so drinkable.

DiarmaidBHK (4442) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle from Greenville Beer Exchange. Pours coca cola brown with a thin khaki head. Some solid nutty notes on the nose. Ryes kind of muted on the tongue but the nuttiness is strong. Finishes clean. Solid!

phaleslu (9777) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Draft at Charleston Beer Works. Pours a deep, semi-cloudy amber that leans brown and has a beige head that leaves a sheet of lace. Aroma of toasted malts, rye, earthy hops, and chocolate. Flavor of cocoa powder, rye, nuts, toast, dry leaves, and plastic. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty, dry, plasticky mouthfeel. Odd beer but good.

22 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color, aromas of nuts, light chocolate, caramel, and some toast. Flavors are the same as the aromas. Decent brown ale overall.

ben4321 (6064) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Location: Draft at F.I.G. Restaurant, 12/8/12

Aroma:This one has a nutty and chocolate malt nose to it, with earthy notes too
Appearance:Pours a brown color with a red hue, and a long lasting head heavy, and coating lace
Flavor:It has a roasted malt flavor, some nuts, and a later medium-plus bitterness
Palate: this beer has a medium-plus body, a creamy feel, a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I found this too be a really solid, well-made brown ale. It drinks quite nicely, and has very nice components to it. Solid stuff.

Wow! Opaque rich brown color with nice brownish head. Wonderful malt and molasses smell. Really fantastic taste of roasted grains and malty goodness with the perfect sweetness. The best brown I can remember and one of the best overall beers Ive ever had. Cant wait for them to increase their availability so I can get it in my home state.

Bomber courtesy of ERNESTO987! This one surprised me a ton. Aroma of milk chocolate, rye, piney hops, coffee, and toast. Taste is very smooth, roasty and complex with a great lightly bittered hop finish. Sweet, smooth, hoppy, roasty, and really the best brown ale ive ever had.
