Sample at GTMW. Brown like a stout with a great nutty, roasty aroma and a little hoppiness. Very smooth, drinkable brew. 7% ABV but wasn’t readily apparent.......a good thing!!! It was a hot day in Madison last Saturday, and I can’t wait to try this brew during football season. Great stuff from Peoples Brewing. bagalagalaga (161) - Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2013
I would have called this one Mr. Black since pretty much no light can pierce it through the pint glass. Very malty, a little chocolatey, and a bit oily consistency. Tastes and looks kind of like a toned-down imperial stout more than a brown ale to me. Very good overall, I was kind of disappointed I just got a single after trying this one. 574deadzone (1419) - North Central, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Pours deep dark brown to black with a thin mocha head. Nose is toast, some chocolate, some earthy grassy hop notes, perhaps a bit of tree bark. Taste is fairly sweet but there’s some bitterness to balance: it’s really quite well balanced overall. Palate is definitely medium bodied, pretty rich but not too heavy, maybe a touch oily, with a pleasant toasty finish. A nice brew, one to sip on and enjoy but smooth enough to knock back if that’s your thing. Good stuff. jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2013
A - Chocolate color with a tan head that dissipates quickly.
S - Again chocolate with some caramel notes.
T - A lot hoppier than most browns. Has a slightly sweet taste upfront and then the bitterness from the hops follows. Good tint of alcohol throughout.
M - A bit lighter than similar beer in this style, but still has a bit of bready thickness to it.
D - Browns aren’t my normal style, but this beer went down incredibly smooth. Would’ve gladly had another if I didn’t have to drive later.

Bottle. Lactic chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown color with small head. Sweet chocolate coffee malt and lightly bitter herbal hops flavor. Full body. Very nice - a great brown ale.

Pours reddish pour with a thin wispy tan head. Notes of chocolate, light roast, toffee, and fruit. Medium bodied, lightly sticky with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty. AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Courtesy of x_Rex (reddit trader), thanks Corey. Pours a murky brown (almost like brown chalk) with a tan head that leaves just a little lacing behind. Aromas are weak but basically what you would expect from a brown, malt, bread, maybe some chocolate. Flavor is like a BIG brown ale, with lots of roasty malts and some bittersweet chocolate, just a pinch of floral hops. The mouthfeel is perfect for a brown, not sticky or thick like a stout or porter. I don’t usually like browns but I can dig this one as it is big enough to keep my interest. nwiseman (202) - Norwich, Connecticut, USA - OCT 1, 2011
From Growler. Pours, well, brown. Relatively little head. Faint nose of coffee and malt. Roasted flavors blend with bitter hops and warm malt. Decent amount of carbonation with a lingering warmth and bitterness. Very respectable beer from a young brewery. Block (2727) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2012
I thought this was a great beer to do nitro. The beer already has a lot of sweet malts, caramel, and alcohol. The nitro definitely adds body and creaminess. Really nice.Patrickctenchi (6590) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2013
