Draft sample @ BBQ, Brews and Blues. Pours a clear brown color with a medium beige head. The aroma was mild; mainly light caramel malts, very slightly nutty, a hint of herbal hops. The flavor was pretty standard for a brown with a slight nuttiness and light herbal hops. Medium light bodied; nothing very special here.

Clear chestnut brown, surprising initial aroma of earthy pot (is this the power of suggestion?) gives way to sweet chocolate. Mostly chocolatey palate, a slightly grassy/earthy quality, smooth mouthfeel with medium body, clean finish. I thought this was an excellent brown ale. marcus (10560) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 21, 2008
This black ale poured with decent tan head and a malty aroma. The head disappeared quickly and so did the flavor - a bit of malt with a sour bitter finish. There are surely better hemp products out there. phaleslu (10546) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Draft at The Bridge. Pours a cloudy, light brown color with a small, creamy off-white head. Aroma of chocolate malts, earthy hops, toast, nuts, and faint herbs and citrus. Flavor of crackers, earthy hops, chocolate malts, nuts, toast, and grass. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a malty, earthy mouthfeel. Really smooth and easy to drink. Nice. onceblind (10290) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2012
On tap at Cheeky Monk in Denver. Clear dark mahogany amber with a beautiful full and foamy light beige head. Aroma of earthy toffee and some light herbalness with a sight dank tone I can’t put my finger on. Flavor is full bodied on a nice sessionable palate. Roasty and earthy toffee with a gentle herbal bitterness, and pleasant malty sweetness on the finish. Not shabby, but kinda forgettable.

Tap at ChurchKey. Into nonic pint, the pour is a cola ruby with a small, tan head. Small lacing. Aroma is sweet, roast, milk chocolate, muted character overall. Taste is cherry, roast, milk chocolate. A decent, light porter. A little heavy and rich for brown ale. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Highly disappointing. Pours dark brown/black with off white head, aroma is some chocolate and roasted notes with a bit of resiny hops. Taste is resiny hops up front with some chocolate and coffee ending roasted and bitter. Not at all hemp-like, with more porter like qualities. bb (9697) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Bottle. Ruby brown beer with a nice off-white head. Slightly fruity and caramel aroma. Clean malt, caramel, and slight fruit (stone) flavor. Touch of cpise. Medium bodied. Easy drinking. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2013
20oz pint on tap at Cock & Bull in Hyde Park, for $6.75. Clear dark red / slightly brown color. Thin khaki head retains on the surface. Leaves decent bits of lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Good toasty, slightly nutty malt profile. Kind of spicy hop, good amount for a brown ale. Bit of herbal, earthy, hemp-type flavors here, hint of chocolate. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Solid, kind of spicy-hoppy brown ale. blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Draft. Pours amber red with an off white head. Light sweet malty aroma with some lighter grainy and chocolatey notes. The flavor has sweet caramel malts with a hint of semi-sweet chocolate. Pretty good, not great.
