Poured from bottle. Pours a clear red-brown with little visible carbonation and a soft, pillowy head. Nose is date, maple, and roast. Strong caramel on the flavor, backed up with a certain hops bitterness and an underpinning of coffee and chocolate. Good mouthfeel. An excellent sessioner.

On tap at Flying saucer. Pours a dark brown with a small creamy beige head. The aroma is a sweet roasted malt with coffee and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a rich chocolate and nice dry finish. A good brown ale from Independence.

mmmbeer (1429) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Pint glass at the brewery- semi transparent dark brown, aroma of a malt that had just a touch of caramel added to it and a faint note of nuts. Hits the mouth with a low medium body, malt is there and has been just lightly sweetened, holds up well in the middle, finish is complete with a note of dark chocolate.

This is the best brown ale that I have had in a while. It has some characteristics of a porter but it’s very drinkable. Lots of coffee and roasted nutty flavors. Just the right hint of sweetness. Overall a really great beer that reminds you why you like beer.

Reviewed 1/3/2010 (Bottle): Pours a clear roasted brown color body, small tan head, pretty quickly diminishing. Roasted aroma, some chocolate. Coffee, almost burnt. Some sweetness, but only a little. Coffee taste, strong coffee. Roasted, but not burnt. Some ashiness, but only a little. Light body, very drinkable. Surprisingly tasty. Some nuttiness.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2010
The beer pours a dark brown, with some reddish highlights on the edges when it is held up to a light. The beer smells of nuts and malt. The taste is similar, but also very creamy.

Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Sample at the Texas Beer & Brats tasting 10/11/2009. The beer is a dark brown color with a thin light beige head that recedes to a film eventually. Roasty malt aroma with notes of nuts and hops. Medium, smooth body with flavors of roasted malt and nuts, hops and a bit of chocolate. The finish is roasty with a lingering malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle shared by Dogbrick. Pours cloudy brown with a big tan head. Caramel malt nose with some roasty character and a bit of hop. Caramel malt flavor with some nice creamy coffee influence and roasty bitter finish. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black with a thin head. Aroma is not bad - dark malts, etc. I couldn’t enjoy the flavor, though - it has homebrew twang. Maybe I got a bad batch or something, but this just wasn’t that good.
