Dark brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate malt, nutty, light roasted malt. Flavor is that and a light hoppy bite on the finish. Really enjoyable malty brown with a light hop background. Good. nathan30533 (1022) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Brown ale? Maybe black. :-) Had this brew on draft. Dark brown and rich. This brown ale is stout and hides the 7% alcohol well. Enjoy! DialSquare (5130) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2014
12oz can from Pace High Carryout: copper-brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of nutty, roasty, grass, wood. Tastes are roasted malt, chocolate, sweet toasty. caramel, coffee. Nutty, herbal, bitter finish. Not a huge brown fan, but this is solid stuff. bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2014
12 ounce can, canned on 11/10/2014. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a clear brown color with some reddish tints to it. Head retention is good, and there’s a lot of lacing. The brew smells like brown sugar, nuts, vanilla and some coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some toasted malt and a light bitter hoppiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and coating with moderate carbonation. I think this is a good brown ale, I wouldn’t mind buying this again. Nice to see the MadTree cans finally come to Columbus! $9.99 a 6-pack. arn8897 (447) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Pours a dark brown, taste a little smokey light brown sugar taste. Half way between a porter and a brown ale.

Tap at champps. Brown nut pour and medium head. Hints of vanilla and light smoke. Medium body. Smooth but not anything to write home about. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Can, as pictured. Definitely a lot bigger and bolder than a standard brown, I was pleased with this. Heavy on the brown sugar I thought. Packed a little bit of a punch. Travlr (26075) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber brown color, beige head. Aroma of nicely hopped toasted caramel. Taste is lightly spiced cocoa powder. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Thanx Vic for bringing some of your home turf up here.
Reviewed from notes, this was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance had a nice dark brown color with a nice looking one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute.
The smell had a nice roasted nuttiness coming across a caramel/toffee-like maltiness.
The taste took those flavors and added a nice creamy coffee-like substance lightly in the background.
On the palate, this sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. It leaves a decent creamy aftertaste and finish.
Overall, good brown ale I’d have again. steelhead3686 (270) - Jacksonville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours a cloudy gold with a thin white head. No real aroma to speak of. The taste is bland. It’s almost like flat soda. The body is light and the texture tickles the tongue.
I had this on tap during Ohio Brew Week. So maybe I got a bad batch.
