Tap @ Swift w James Streets and E. Dark brown with smooth almond head. Nutty chalky taste but not too harsh or uneven. Good solid silky brown. jredmond (8335) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Draft at Swift with streets, Brendan and Erica. Pours a deep, deep brown with thin chocolate brown lacing. Aroma is light coffee roast and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet malts - wow pretty plain. Somewhat disappointing, but not bad. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Draft at taps 25. Not much aroma and thin tight head. Caramel and malt flavor. Very smooth. Strykzone (7430) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Draft at Bigelos. A black beer with beige foam. This was interesting. It was kind of soggy funky in front. Chocolate, roast, and citrus hops mixed with the soggy notes. This is definitely not an American brown. I liked it. jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Pours a clear brown in to a no nic glass with nice head and decent lacing. Smells like a typical brown ale but had taste of a porter with roasted flavor. Medium carbonation with full mouthfeel. Fairly easy to drink and not too bad.

Pours a very pretty dark reddish brown color with a mall tight head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is nutty and lightly roasty with some mild chocolate. It’s a pretty mild aroma all together.
The flavor is nutty with some mild coffee.... what I mean by that I suppose is like good coffee grounds, that you attempted to do a second press on in a French press. Like it’s not a rich coffee flavor, but it’s nice too.... kinda weird... whatever. There is some light vanilla, and the beer is not particularly sweet, but not especially dry either.
It poured a brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of chocolate, caramel and some vanilla. The taste was of caramel malt, chocolate, light roastiness, some florals and brown sugar. Very tasty. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Tap at Mekong in Richmond VA. Pours a clear deep amber. Giant yellowish beige head. Huge retention and lace. Nose is a bit vegetal, celery, sweet cherry. Taste is metallic, coppery, small chocolate. Still quite vegetal. Very bland, papery, mealy, minty. brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2013
On tap. Head and lace are pretty, dry aroma is nice I suppose. Malts are plain and unassuming, trying their hardest not to make that much of an impression. Bleh, nothing special. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Serving: Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a medium brown color with a small tan head. The nose has a light nuttiness. Light to medium body with notes of nuts, brown malt, and a slight earthy bitterness. Clean finish. Fairly standard brown ale fare, but clean and tasty. Nice session brew.
