Medium/dark brown color, medium head. A medium bodied brown ale. Roasted malts, slightly sweet. Slightly spicy and somewhat floral hops. Good balance. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer. Etched/painted beer bottle.

Please God, make me a porter! That's what this beer says to me. Very dark but not quite heavy enough to be a stout or a porter. A good beer for those who maybe don't want the intensity of a really dark beer but still enjoy the flavor. An acceptable beer, I'll have it again.

A nice hybrid, but not the best I've had. Nice for the price................

Medium everything - colour, aroma, palate. I'll go with Axemaster on this one, as it really did little for me.

I actually like the eccentricity of this beer - the roastiness and the hops - quite a bit. The body is a bit weak, perhaps, but the sweetness that builds through the rougher features is very nice. Sean (hennes) says this one borders on a porter, but I don't like porters and I like this brew a lot.

Hmmm, a style challenge here. These guys have pushed the brown envelope somewhat with their strongly roasty (coffee even) malt action and their edgy hops. Maybe so much going on here that it ads up to not enough. If that doesn't make sense, consider that I had quite a few really amazing brews at this session ...

22oz. bottle. Cellar temperature. Clear dark copper. Creamy yet foamy tan head. Trace carbonation. Aroma of caramel, roasted chocolate, spicy and bitter hops. Clean and smooth tasting. Medium light body. Fairly dry. Delicate roasted chocolate malts with a light toffee aftertaste. Smattering of spicy and bitter hops. Well balanced but the malts could use a little more oomph to them, as the hop bitterness tends to smother the malt flavor. Lingering aftertaste is more bitter hops than smooth malts. Finishes with an upturn in chocolate maltiness. A brew to quaff, not savor. A more than decent Americanized Brown ale.

It's a real good American Brown Ale. Very subtle aroma; woodsy, dark malt, roastiness, some hops. The taste is a bit strong in both the roastiness (edging in on burnt territory) and bitter hops departments, but challengingly so.

Very little aroma, a nice brown color, the flavor was surprisingly mild, really a little too bland for my taste
