nutty alcohol aroma, dark brown color. Very nutty sweet malt, almost burnt taste. Not my favorite.

I thought this beer was one of the better TX craft beers I’ve had. It was a really nice brown ale with lots of caramel and roasty ("burned pizza crust") flavor. This beer poured a rather flat-looking reddish-brown into a pint glass. The head materialized rather late after I’d poured the beer. Aroma was pretty nice; a lot of brown sugar caramel-ness. Flavor was also good - a nice blend of caramel and burnt roastiness. I thought this beer had a lot more flavor than many other brown ales I’ve had. Mouthfeel was a bit boring and thin, but not bad. I’d have this again. Definitely recommended.

Garnet red beer against the light with a thin light greenish head and a dusty chocolate nose. Burnt coffee, dark chocolate, some ash and caramel sweetness. Decent for a brown ale.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with bu11zeye (thanks!). Poured a deeper and cloudy brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, and caramel. Tastes of roast, chocolate, nuts, and had a light coffee bitter finish.

(Bottle) Pours a mahogany body with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma of roastiness, chocolate, caramel, and nuts. Flavor of roasted malt, cocoa, and caramel with a dry finish.

Pours a dark brown/ruby color with a very bubbly off-white that disappeared quickly. Aroma is chocolatey and nutty with a little roasted character, too. Tastes nice and chocolatey with a roasted cofee flavor as well... very nice. Nice aftertaste where the roasted flavor comes out more strongly. Would love to have this one on tap. 12 oz. bottle.

I couldn’t get a good head going on this one, must’ve been a bad pour. Anyways, smells potently of coffee and a strong but not over powering chocolate taste (the carbonation combines with it nicely). The body’s not too heavy, I could easily have more than one in a sitting.

Bottle courtesy of lb4lb. Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of dough, some sweet malt. Taste is of chocolate and sugar with some dryness. On the boring side of the brown ale spectrum.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown color with dark malty aroma. This is a great brew. I am really impressed with this one. I was not expecting much from these guys, but this is great.

Pours a dark brown color with a thick khaki head. Smells like coffee grounds. Tastes like water and hints of coffee grounds and rosated malt. Not good dont buy very weak. Kind of tastes like dirt.
