Pours dark brown, smooth and translucent, cream head, spotted lacing. Aroma of roasted barley, chocolate and brown sugar. Tastes medium roast bitter, roasted barley, chocolate, brown sugar, fruity hops come in the after taste, and balance this ale very well. Medium body, soft carbonation, very easy to drink, lot of lingering roasted taste. Very enjoyable. jmgreenuk (10692) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle at Tap Craft Beer Bar, Robertson Quay, Singapore. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy off white head. The aroma is roasted caramel malt, grassy light fruit hop. The flavour is moderate sweet light bitter with a dry grassy, red berry fruit, nettle, spicy, molasses, woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average to soft carbonation. I'd have preferred a little more carbonation but I guess I'm just a black IPA junkie. Not sure this is a brown Ale tho!!

Pours from 12oz bottle a clear deep brown with a small head of foam that doesn't last long and doesn't leave any lacing.
The smell is of roasted malt and some citrus hops.
The taste has huge roasted malt up front that smacks you in the face...just as I remember it. ;^) As I take more sips, there's a more than ample infusion of hop bitterness and some dark fruit notes. Man, this is great stuff! So much roastiness and there's some toffee also hitting my taste buds. And just a little bit of warming in the back of my throat that reminds me to sip and take my time with this gem. What a Brown Ale!
Bottom line: This is a top notch example of the style that is a *must* try. FatPhil (17719) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2017
355ml bottle (Ebrowarium.pl) (5:4:4:2:9=2.4)bth122 (1720) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2017
Very savoury aroma, soy, but also very sweet. Dark red, persistent small tight beige head. Dead palate, slickish from sugars, carbonation does nothing to lift it. Nasty soapy taste, some savoury soy mushroom and sugar mess. Only plus is that it covers the 7.2% behind the mess, but deep down this is a terrible ale.
Draft in Pittsburgh before the Ed Sheehan show. Pours a dark brown with generous head. Roasted malt, floral hop, brown sugar, caramel. Medium body. Medium light bitter. Nice texture. It's been awhile since I've he this one but it is still good.

12floz bottle, no date, $1.75 paid as a single, pint glass. Appears a medium-dark brown with some amber glow at the bottom. Head forms a small layer and retains it character. Firmly a brown ale in the nose, aromas of brown sugar and mild roasted malts noted. A fine American brown, resin, tree bark, pine, and faint cocoa flavors comprise this fullish bodied and fairly hoppy dark ale. Ktwse (5861) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2017
Pours deep cloudy brown with low tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, sugar, citrus. Taste is roasty, mild lingering bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.
