dark brown color, lots of cherries and malty. Earthy. Very nice and smooth definitely not west coast. Excellent

Tap at Pizza Port. Pours a translucent amber brown with a smaller creamy off white head. Aroma of nuts, tobacco and chocolate. Flavor of the same. JohnnyJ (5569) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2010
On tap at PP Carlsbad. Pours a dark brown, creamy light tan head. Roasted malt, bread, sweetness, nuts, chocolate, and light bitterness to balance. Really very drinkable and quite tasty. I’m not a big fan of the style, but this is one of the better examples. nbutler11 (1305) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2010
On tap at Papago -- thanks to hellbilly for the reminder. Pours a chalky brown color with a trim tan head -- looks more like Franklin, actually. Smells and tastes caramel, sweets malts, muted cocoa, cream, and dry hops. Very drinkable -- good grief! hellbilly (3306) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 28, 2010
charlie brown on tap at papago 2/4/10.
mostly opaque chestnut-y brown with a somewhat tannish head which sticks around as a film.
the nose is really nutty... full of caramel, dark grain, roasty coffee, woody vanilla, cream and some herbal hops.
it tastes a lot like canned coffee drink with caramel and cream... side notes of toasted nuts, roast, vanilla, wood and herbal hoppy dryness... this is just a step away from being a porter... delish.
full body, luscious mouth feel... very creamy, rich yet hoppy and terribly sessionable! 8/4/8/5/17/4.2

This was a fine brown ale. Looks good, sweet aroma. Definitely not a nut brown flavor to this, but a bit hop heavy, like many PP beers. Good guest beer at Big Dogs SuperDave (2555) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2010
On tap at Pap. Deep amber brown pour with a foamy head. Roasted nuts, malt, coffee and chocolate aroma. A touch of sweetness. Pretty good brown ale. yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2010
From tap at Carlsbad. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small white to light tan head. Aroma is mild fruity and yeasty. Smooth roasted and light caramelish. Smooth toffee dark malty finish. Nice one. User29624 (1687) - - FEB 15, 2010
Feel weird going to Pizza Port and not drinking something hoppy or a Stout. This beer pours brown with minimal head. Aroma and flavor of coffee, chocolate. It is a bit thin, but is still a decent brown. Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2010
On-tap at Papago bar. Very dark brown and lacey, though was only a whisp of a head. A bit watered down. Some licorice taste. Sweet and essentially uninteresting, did not pick up the unique use of hops.Average mouthfeel.
