Bomber. Dark chocolate aroma. Dark brown color with a three finger beige head. Medium body with fine carbonation; almost chewy. Flavor is lots of chocolate, dark roasted malt, and bitter (probably burnt malt and hop). Finish is dry, and the bitter is persisting. Seems to be really good for a brown ale. Damn near crisp. djd07 (15330) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2016

Bottle. Medium brown pour, with an aroma of mostly roasted malt. There’s a hint of nuts and caramel in the nose and flavor as well, but mostly roast. A little thin on the palate, but pleasant overall. BVery (11209) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2014

Medium sweetness, modest bitterness and light acidity. Finishes well-roasted, balanced and lightly tangy.
