Pours a nice dark brown with a thin beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is nicely balanced between roasted malt (chocolate, nuts) and hops. Taste is almost dry with nice dark chocolate and coffee flavors along distinct nutty notes. Definitely bitter but that is not the main focus here. Body is fuller than your usual brown ale and mouthfeel really smooth with a well mastered level of carbonation. Really nice!

RickTheRick (947) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
La George a des caractristiques qui se rapprochent plus dun stout avec ses fortes notes de torrfaction au nez et en bouche. Brune trs fonce ne moussant que trs peu, une forte prsence de houblons donne un kick incroyable en bouche, mais nattnue pas le got fort agrable de noisettes. Bien malte et bien ronde, cette bire est presque parfaite, jen voudrais plein!

Bottle @ RBWG Fart Share. Pours a brown appearance with a light brown head. Somewhat piney, spicy hoppy, chocolate, a touch nutty aroma. Creamy mouth feel. Moderately bitter. Nice toasted malty. Petes pretty good.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Sample from a 750ml flip top. Mostly clear color. Thin off-white head. Dot or two of lace. Bigger citrusy c-hop for a brown. Nice hoppy brown. I like a hoppy brown. Good earthy chocolatey malt. "Its Toasted.". Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice mild zest. I want to look for a reason to not like HF. But this is an awesome, sort of hoppy brown ale. No way to not admit that. Great stuff, yet not over the top in any way.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Pour is dark brown with a light tan head. Nose is heavily roasted malt with notes of roasted coffee, hint of vanilla, dark chalky malts. Taste is a touch less roasty, more malt richness with some fudge and a hint of vanilla, fairly clean and no sugars left over. Rich body, not heavy, nice carb, great feel.

OmegaX (1372) - Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2014
This is a nice brown ale. On tap at CCB brewpub. Nose is fresh hops, chocolate, some roast, well water. Great. Pour is dark brown, khaki head. Flavor is similar with a big hop presence and tons of roasted malts. Very drinkable and nicely balanced for being so hop heavy compared to other browns.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Growler... Clear dark-mahogany pour with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is a malty melange of cocoa, vanilla and toasted nuts. Medium-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. The bittersweet, toasty flavor presnts layers of cocoa and tree nuts. Finishes tangy, roasted and a bit tongue-numbing. Ridiculously nice brown ale. Shaun even found a way to give this one a little viscocity. Not usually one of his strengths. This one pulls up just shy of being world class. Thanks to landhoney for his generosity!

Had on draft at Cigar City Brewpub in Tampa. Poured into pint glass. Moderate to dark brown appearance. Taste is solid, with a bigger hop presence than I was expecting. Nice body that filled out the taste, in contrast to the many brown ales that taste quite thin. As far as brown ales go, this was quite good, and would be in my top ten. When compared against the entire world of beer, however, it's just so so. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
