Poured from the bottle in Show Low, AZ. NICE dark red crimson color. Nice head thin lacing. Aroma is nice caramel and roasted malt. Flavor has to be one of the best brown ale Ive had in a long time. Really nice roasted notes with coffee flavors. Which the bitterness blended nicely. Pretty darn good.

Pours a rich dark brown with foamy tan head. Aroma is dark prunes with light smoked malt. Flavor is smooth with more light dark fruits and some glassy off-flavors.

Very perfumey taste. A little dry, bitter, not my favorite. The perfume like taste just ruins it for me

maxwelldeux (4357) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a very small head on there. Nose has hints of nuttiness to it, but is not particularly fragrant. Taste is also just a bit sour, and seems like its spoiled a bit. Not very good.

Forgettable brown. Chocolate brown colored. Nutty and chocolate taste. Slightly bitter finish. Not horrific, but just another brown.

10/5/14. 12oz bottle from Exit 18. Nutty aroma, mild chocolate, smells very much like the red of theirs I just tried. Chalky flavor, tannic grains, some nuttiness and chocolate. Meh

Tastes like a sour and a brown ale smashed into one. It's tasty, but sort of bland.
