Bottle: Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma and flavor of malts. Not a bad little beer. I would drink again. phaleslu (10452) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2011
12 oz. bottle from Root Cellar. Pours a mostly cloudy cola brown with a small khaki ring for a head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, brown sugar, earth, and roast. Flavor of toasted chocolate malts, brown sugar, nuts, earth, and just a wee bit of coffee. Light-medium bodied, with mellow carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Hell of a brown ale.

Do you like New Castle but wish it had more flavor? Then this beer is for you. Aroma is nuts, caramel, and light resin hops. Taste is smooth and sweet with nice nutty flavor and subtle roasted notes. Great representation of a brown ale. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Bottle at Kuma’s in Chicago. We were pounding down big fat burgers, my brother, friend and I, and I ordered the raspberry and he got the brown. Roasty aroma with hints of roasted nuts and malts. Slightly sweet, brown sugar. Easy to drink and quite pleasant. yngwie (17101) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle. A whole bunch of microfloaties in this one, else it’s see-through. Brown in color and with a small, beige head on top. The aroma is roasted, with a nice blend of chocolate and coffee. Sweet, roasted flavor with some dried fruits. Coffee and chocolate. Roasted finish and a full body. Slightly sticky. A beer that starts a bit boring, then the middle is nice, but the end is a bit dull and short. 110107

Reviewed from notes. On tap at Dark Horse.
Pours a nice brown color that is slightly opaque. Off white head with a pretty good amount of retention and some nice lacing. The nose brings sweet malt, caramel, toffee, a bit of fruit, and some nice earthy hops. The taste is a good blend of hops and malt, with the combination really shining through in the mouthfeel. Drinkability is quite good and it was a nice brew on my first trip (finally!) to the brewery.
Serving type: on-tap
