Pours a dark brown, glows red in the light, with a small tan head that falls quickly. Great roasty malt flavors and aroma with a well balanced taste and smooth body. Slight toffee taste towards the end with some nice finishing hops to balance. pineypower (3350) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Pours a dark brown with a medium sized tan head. It has a good roasted malty flavor with some notes of sugar and hops. This is a very well balanced brown ale. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 24, 2004

Deep brown with a lacy tan head. Lots of roasted malt in the flavor without being overpowering. Sweet and sugary with a very mild hop aftertaste. Very smooth and tasty. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, not much of a head to speak of. Roasted malt aroma. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth. Hops are not overwhelming but present. Very nicely done.

Nice brown color, with a short lived head. Sweet roasty and caramel aromas. Taste is also roasted malt, sugar, coffee and nutty as well. Very enjoyable experience. snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Pours a dark brown, iwth a nice toffee colored head. Has the caramel aroma that I expect from a brown ale, but there are hops hiding there as well. Shares the roastiness and coffee notes of a porter with some pretty agressive hopping. Very nice. ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2004
A hopped up brown ale. Dark brown color. Good caramel malt aroma coupled with hop aroma. Good deal of bitterness in there also, but not too much. Full mouthfeel. jtw (1170) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2004
