On draft at Mellow Mushroom. Pours a brown mahogany with garnet highlights and a fair ring of tan head. Sweet raisins and caramel malt aroma. Some nuttiness shows up in the flavor. A bit cloying in the finish but overall, pretty good. nearbeer (5563) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2008
12 oz, bb Jul 08. Uncloudy mahogany with a large and enduring creamy head that leaves nice lacing. Molasses, cocoa, caramel and occasional sour-metallic notes in the aroma. Flavor is molasses, cocoa and dark-toasted walnut with a slight lactic acid twang and light metallic hops. Medium body is lightly carbonated, smoothish and sufficiently dry on the finish to make a great session ale. DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle. Clear with a redish brown color and a big soapy head. Faint nose of sugary malt. Mouthfeel is too soda-like. Flavor’s are simple coffee and nutitness with a sharp, clean finish. Tastes very much like a homebrew with minimal complexity. Quite drinkable. MaltOMeal (1094) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2008
12oz bottle thanks to jrob_21. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head which dissipated quickly. Smell is of malt and roastiness. Taste was of malt and vinegar. A bit cola-like. Mouthfeel was medium-to-thin with a bit of dryness. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Draught, from a CASK at the WBF in Raleigh. Pours dark brown, with tan head. Aroma is malty, sweet, roasty. Flavor is similar, nice beer, but nothing extraordinary about it. A little thin in flavor, but otherwise, okay.

Dark brown with an amber hue. Some chocolate and roast aroma, but nothing overwhelming. Good bittering hops, although I wouldn’t mind seeing more aroma hops used. Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2008
On tap at Sportstime in W-S. Pours a dark brownish red color with a small light tan head leaving some lacing. Aroma is a dark brown sugar malty nose. It has a little bitterness, but the flavor brings a strong metallic flavor at the beginning. Once you get past that, there is some roasted coffee malt flavor with a touch of nuttiness. Very watery. Not terrible, but probably won’t search this out again. mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Tap at Natty Greenes Pub. Small tan fizzy head into dark brown body. strong brown sugar in the aroma as well as light hops and some light spices. good brown ale. jrob21 (3774) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Wife brought this back from Greensboro. I love my wife. Pours a deep brown with purple tint color with a really thin off white head. Roasted malt flavor and hop bitterness. Candi sugar and caramel aroma. Leaves a faint sweetness on the backside. Long finish and full bodied. Very interesting brown ale. NachlamSie (3536) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours brown with a small head. Aroma is very nutty, hints of toast and baking chocolate are noted. This is a pretty straight up brown ale. Nice and nutty, not overly sweet, It’s toasty all around and the finish is doughy. There is a strange, almost vegetal aspect towards the finish. This may have been my least favorite out of the Natty Greene’s bottled lineup.
