Bottle, total wine. Dark brownish black rootbeer color. Smells malty, and then a little metallic nose. Taste is darkly dull and seems to have more alky than 5%. Leather, then perhaps a tiny amount of baking cocao in thar. Overall, not bad but for only 4%, you’d think it would be more civilized.

It pours dark brown with a light tan head. It has aromas of nuts, toffee, and dark fruits specifically plum. It has roasted flavors with some nut flavors, toffee, and hints of dark fruits (Plums). It has a moderate feel with a slight bitterness. It has a fairly high level of carbonation.

English -styled mellow brown with lots of toffee and powdered chocolate. Some lightly spicy hop notes. Easy full flavored sessionable brown. A nibble of plays into the finish.

CharmCityCrab (244) - Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Pour is a dark brown. Smell is very sweet and malt forward, reminiscent of some Oktoberfest brews. Taste is nutty and bready (caramel malts in here, among other malts, I’d guess) with a hint of dark malt and chocolate.

Taste- Has a mild roasted malt flavor that is not overpowering. Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with mild carbonation and a thin texture Overall- Not a bad brown ale, I would drink this again if I was out and wanted a brown ale.

malvrich (264) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2015
A: Very dark garnet brown. Very little beige head. Fair retention though and a bit of lace. S: Sweet chocolate and raisins mainly. A little roast T: Bitter chocolate with just a faint sweetness. Also a very faint fruit note on the finish. Pretty good if not exceptional flavor. M: Light body. Low carbonation. Easy drinking to be so dark. O: Not a bad brown ale. Thin bodied but I like the low ABV. Worth buying at least when on sale for $7/6.

Pecan nose. Brown, thin tan head. Sweet nutty, grainy flavor, a little cardboard. Medium body. Has issues, but it was quite enjoyable.
