Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose some some roasting to it with a slight malty sweetness coming through underneath. Taste is actually a little toasty with some elements of coffee to it. Definitely has a bit to it, but is fairly inviting. Interesting... jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 19, 2013
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate and toffee malts plus some light floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average to smooth texture. Borders on a stout a little bit for a brown ale, but a good brown ale. AirForceHops (8033) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 13, 2013
12 oz. can courtesy of queenholly. I was really surprised by the color, couldn’t believe it was brown!! No head. Toffee and chocolate with underlying nutty nose. Similar flavors as the nose; caramel, nuts and some chocolate. The flavor is bold for a brown ale. If there is a “Imperial” brown ale this is close. Carbonation is real low yet the texture is lightly creamy. Pretty damn good. rondphoto (4514) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 14, 2016
bottle @ Whitey’s / Lawrenceburg IN --- Opaque black/brown color, heavy beige head that sticks around, sheets of lace. Taste is toasted malt that adds fizz and dark chocolate on the swallow, then changes to bitter black coffee and light hazelnut in a lingering finish. How is this a brown ale? Regardless, a solid, complex, well-balanced brew. patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 10, 2010
tap at Indiana winterfest - Pours medium brown with a small tan head. There’s a caramel malt aroma. Flavor is the expected caramel malt with good roastiness and a robust taste that makes this medium bodied brown ale work well.

Draft. Small tan head that was mostly lasting, no visible carbonation, fair amount of lacing, and a brown hue. The aroma was malty, nutty and earthy hops. Ditto for the flavor. The mouthfeel was tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, the hops were more upfront than the malts considering this is a Brown Ale which caught me off guard. That being said, I truly enjoyed drinking this beer as it is definitely worthy of a try and one I would drink again. AndyW68 (1641) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Good, not great. Dark brown with tan head. Sweet malty almost fruity aroma. Taste is sweet leaninv toward brown sugar with a light bitterness. Hophaze (192) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a ruby color with little head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Decent balance finish with slight bitterness. Higher abv than most browns I'm accustomed to but no complaint. It warmed me on a cold Early March night!

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a fairly transparent brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; sweet and malty with notes of toffee and light hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A solid example of the style. dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours clear brown with a tight and perfect nitro head. Aroma is nuts, toast, caramel. Taste is nutty caramel, cocoa, toasty finish, definetly some Goldings hops for sweetness. Body is medium, creamy, long nutty finish. Overall, an enjoyable brew.
