Bottle… Pours clear, dark and dirty orange when held to light. Mid-sized, fluffy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma is a happy, American-style marriage of caramel malt and light notes of chocolate, grapefruit and spicy hops. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor leans just a touch toward the bitter side of balance, offering moderate notes of caramel and milk chocolate intertwined with citrusy, spicy bitterness. Finishes crisp and lightly bitter. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Dark brown with a slight burnt malt bitterness. A decent tan head with some hops that make the ride balanced. Livid (49) - - JAN 7, 2012
22 oz bottle. Pours a deep brown color, 1/2" of pale brown head. Roasty and nutty, malty sweet with a nutty finish and lingering hop bitterness. Medium body. Smells of roast malt and nuts. Very complex and flavorful for a brown ale. 1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Tap at Pelican. Pours to a mahogany brown body with a starch white head. The aroma is of caramel and grains with a subtle milk chocolate. Flavor of deep roasty malt with a nice toast and lemon zest like hops. Chewy medium palate. Nutty. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011

Flavors are pretty hop forward, spicy, American hops, pine, chocolate forward over dark roast characters. Nutty. Takeaway: nuts and pine. Medium to lively bubbles, medium bodied. Good.

Pours a dark dark chestnut brown, fairly clear with a slow dissipating head. Is it suppose to be a Dark Mild an English Brown Ale or an American Brown Ale? A touch of sweetness, a bit of tobacco, some savory mild character along with a fair bit of piney aroma make this a very drinkable "brown" ale. Hinting at tobacco, yet full enough to be a pleasing session beer. Northwest hops play a prominent role, lending a distinctinve finishing note. Pleasing to the palate, not overwhelming.

A sweet and roasty brown ale. Very delicious. Almost like a Scottish ale in sweetness and flavor. JorisPPattyn (10137) - BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2011
Chestnut-brown, but clear ale; tan head. Bit soapy nose, lots of melanoidins suggested. Smells malty, if thinnish, but some C-hops in evidence. Bit dullish chocolatey flavour; (autumn) leaves too, but soon gone; straw. Very sticky, gristslick. If a bit dullish at first, it might well grow on you. peteinSD (1468) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Pours a clear brown with a nice sized tan head. Aroma is clean, sweet malt, soft hops, minimal chocolate, and perhaps a small bit of roast although it is very subtle and hard to pick out. Taste is dominated by sweet malt up front (but not too sweet) followed by light caramel, soft chocolate cocoa and a small amount of hop bitterness into the finish. Well-made and perfectly enjoyable brown ale.
