Among this brewery’s uninteresting bottled beers with goofy names, this one is actually the best. Totally good brown ale worth the buy. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Pours dark brown with thick off-white head and spotty lacing. Brown sugar, malts, chocolate, and caramel upfront. Slight coffee flavor combined with hops on the finish radagast83 (8690) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle thanks to badnloose. Pours a medium brown color with a small dissipating head. Aroma is that of a typical brown ale with a small note of dark chocolate. Flavor is about the same, creamy, with coffee and bitter chocolate. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2007
tap @ Natty Greenes: Poured a clear brown color with a creamy beige head. Light roasted malt makes up the aroma. Some notes of fruit and hints of coffee. The flavor had a decent roast to it with fruitiness and hints of coffee. DragonStout (1418) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2007

Tap. Incredibly dark brown, tettering towards black in the right light. Tan head slow to dissipate. Full aroma of chocolate and nutmeg, creamy and strong taste. Flowed so well I didn’t want to stop drinking. Great with a meal. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Pours mahogany brown with beige head. The aroma is slightly spicy with some raisin and charred toast. The flavor is caramel and bitter chocolate with a dose of burnt toast. Raisin and wood come in the middle, then a toasty and slightly nutty finish. Not bad. jcwattsrugger (12579) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2007
on tap-pours a disappearing tan head and brown color with red tint. Aroma is dark malt-nutty/roasty/faint caramel. Taste is dark malt-nutty/roasty/caramel/chocolate. Hint of hops waived over brew kettle. Smooth. Mild carbonation. bubbleflubber (2244) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2007
SIlver medalist at the GABF.... (one of the brown divisions). Pours dark, an almost black mahogany with tan webbing. The nose is excellent, of caramelized honey-roasted nuts. This well integrates caramel, espresso, semi-sweet chocolate, roasted grains, almonds and walnuts. After all of this complexity, the finish resides somewhere in the semi-sweet chocolate and almond realm. The mouthfeel is round and comforting. A nicely put together brown ale.
