How do you say NO when you are the only one in the room? Almost no head on crisp medium brown. OK malt scent. Wow, pretty good brown ale flavor. Creamy body. Roasty. Nice!! Voodoo (659) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Pours a deep cola colored brown with a medium head which disappears quickly.........aroma of chocolate.....taste is smooth mouthfeel of coffee notes, chocolate with light bittering in the end. airrick2003 (872) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Appearance: pours with a small tan head, the beer is practically black except when you hold it up to light you can see amber hues
Aroma: dark roasted malt, some flowers, coffee, a bit faint
Taste: dark roasted malt but not overpowering, some sweetness, minimal bitterness
Palate: lively carbonation, leaves mouth wet, lighter mouthfeel for style, not much after taste
Overall: seems to be a pretty good session beer after I check the abv, easy drinking, not overly strong in the flavor department

Pours a bright mahogany colour with light lacing. A nose of discreet nut and dark chocolate. Notes of roasted hazelnut and hints of dark chocolate on the palette. Enjoyably crisp for a brown ale and not at all sweet. With grateful thanks to a friend who carried this bottle carefully from it’s home in Texas across the pond. Talcagirl (25) - - AUG 30, 2014
A souvenir from crazy Texas expedition.Lovely, long lasting creamy head.
A bit sweet aromas,but the taste is well balanned, very velvet, smooth.
Coffee and toffee taste, but not to sweet. I am sure this is an excellent beer for long winer months...

Nutty aroma that goes with the smooth nut and small amount of chocolate malt on the palate. Deep brown in appearance and overall very tasty brown ale with a touch of bittering hops. Pleasant on the palate and could be considered sessionable. Travlr (24333) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Draft at Flying Saucer San Antonio. Clear amber maroon color, tan head. Aroma of nutty toast. Taste is plain caramel. DearBeer2013 (94) - - AUG 3, 2014

Pours a nice chocolatey brown color with off-white head. Cocoa, caramel, and some roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice chocolate note. dfinney23 (3255) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Really nice brown with nutty, caramel and chocolate notes. Yet another beer I should be drinking more often.
