Malty brown ale smell...Taste is malt..Lightly sweet...Even lighter smokiness...Maybe even some grape on finish but light...Pretty smooth ...In Clemson at symposium 2017 Suttree (6415) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2016
Very dark brown with a lot of creamy beige foam. Smells like cola and iced coffee, with some notes of chocolate. Taste is more iced coffee and cola. Seems pretty lightly hopped, which I actually kinda like in this style. Travlr (25264) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2016
Draft at the original Brixc location. Clear brown color white edge head. Aroma of toasted cocoa. Taste is sweet nutty cocoa with light body and a lightly bitter finish. Nice. nearbeer (5461) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Pint on tap. Dark brown with a lasting ring and spots of foam. Nose is dark roast, toffee and a hint of apple. Flavors of toffee, cocoa, coffee, a bit of lactose, dry grass and toasted nut. Light-medium body has a nicely sessionable balance and low-medium carbonation. freekyp (2336) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2017 On tap at Brixx for featured brewery night. This one was disappointing. Light bodied English brown. Some earthiness, smoke and coal in the nose. Very laid back flavors. Fleeting brown sugar malt fading into lightly spicy hop, then disappearing. Craft beer for non crafties. Pours medium brown with zero head. Original score 2.2. / RERATE. Tap at the source. Tremendous improvement since my original sample. Dark brown with a small tan head. Brown sugar nose. Roasted nuts. Mild chocolate. Round mouthfeel with a medium-dry finish. Yummy.

Not bad for the ABV. Drinks fairly light with an appealing bitterness at the end. Definite nuttiness and chocolate notes. Average but sessionable. LuckyDog (615) - - NOV 2, 2014
I liked this brown quite a bit. Malt forward, with a light roast. Smooth finish. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Draft in a flight at the brewery. Poured a dark brown with a small head. Very easy and tasty brew, with subtle hints of nuttiness over a warm and great brown ale. One of their better beers. magsinva (1326) - Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Reviewed from notes, tasted 12/22/2011 at the brewery - Pours a clear mahogany with a thin white head. taste is mildly bitter. Palate is a bit thin, but expected, considering the 3.8 ABV. Aroma is nutty with a touch of chocolate. hellbilly (3248) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2012
on tap 7/13/11 at the brewery.
walnuty brown with orange at the edges and a tannish ow head.
the aroma is nutty... along with notes of caramel, toast, mild choco and some lemony tartness.
the flavor is the same. the tartness shows up on the finish. odd... but tasty.
it is quite crisp but i’m sure the lemon is lending a hand....6/4/6/3/13
