12 oz. bottle to lager glass. Amber with small tan head that laces nicely. A little touch of coffee, with chocolate and malty aromas. Somewhat thin in the mouth, but taste is a balanced sweet with a subtle bitter finish. Leaves a nice aftertaste too. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised, a good beer from the land of the fundamentalists.
Three Blind Mice has a thick, mousey, ivory head, a semi-clear, copper appearance, lots of big and small suspended sediment, some lazy ascending bubbles, and fairly heavy glass lacing. The aroma is of slightly sour brown bread crust and some light caramel. Taste is the same, with a bit of char and a touch of bitterness. Everything, here, is mainly a muted affair. Mouthfeel is watery, and Three Blind Mice finishes medium wet. RJT Cavie (4760) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Tap at the pub. Clear reddish brown color. Beige bubbly head. Nutty aroma. Malty sweet, dried leaves, bit of toast. Flavor is toasted malt, nutty, dried leaves, light malty sweetness. Malt forward balance. Finishes lightly bitter. Clean.

Pours a deep brown from the bottle with big fluffy tan head that dissipates slowly to leave good lacing. Aroma of mild roast, a hint of nut and chocolate. Taste follows with an earthy middle and a touch of sweetness. Pretty solid brown. Airlifter (134) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - NOV 8, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish-brown with a lot of off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is malty with some yeast. No bitterness. Great roasted malt flavor, with hints of dark chocolate and slight hoppiness at the finish. Some lingering smoke. Light mouthfeel and a moderate amount of carbonation. This is a great beer. seymour (2076) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Tasted on tap at the 2016 Tanglefoot Fest, it poured a brown colour with weak off-white foam. Malty and a little toasty, caramelly, not much else. Vague hoppy balance, nothing special in this nor the yeast department. Definitely drinkable, not deeply flawed per se, but lacks the body, fruitiness, complexity of a good brown ale. Forgettable.

Bottle pour. Slightly hazy brown pour with a small head. Fairly straightforward nose. Baked apple. Hershey’s chocolate syrup. A bit of leather. Flavor has some light dry toasted nut. A bit earthy. Sweet chocolate and caramel. Medium body, strong carb. Decent enough brown ale. TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle shared by Jackl. Pours a lighter brown with a ring of white head. Aroma is caramel and some dark fruits. Taste is sweet, nutty, lots of malt. Pretty basic brown ale. Ibrew2or3 (8743) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2015
12oz bottle, courtesy of gregwilsonstl, pours with a deep amber colored body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up a bit of nuttiness and then a mineral sensation heading quickly into sweet malts and a dash of chocolate malts. The taste quickly attains a pleasing roastiness with dark roasted malts, roasty earthy tobacco like malts and then a thin burnt malt note. To midway the sweeter malts and chocolate make a move forward adding a nice counter to the roastiness. This comes together nicely. Fun brown. vyvvy (6563) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Pours brown with a good sized beige soapy head. The aroma has toasty malt, bread, mild spice and dry toffee. It has a medium crisp body with a lot of carbonation, but not intrusively so. The taste starts with dry toasty malt, some metallic notes, minerals and mild hops. The finish has more earthy hops and more mineral heavy. Very drinkable, but missing a lot of what I dig in a brown ale. mjmoen (573) - - OCT 30, 2015
Drank from the bottle. Medium body with flavors of caramel and toffee, same aromas
