Pours a nice dark slightly hazy mahogany with a VERY thick tan head - my sample fizzed like crazy. Decent aroma is malty, fruity and a little yeasty. Malty flavor has a faint caramel undertone as well as cloves and cinnamon hints. Texture is smooth and somewhat fizzy, leaving a tingly and malty finish.

A medium brown pour with off-white head. A malty aroma with some mild chocolate notes. The taste is lively with semi-sweetness and a medium body. The finish is fairly dry, a little astringent, and surprisingly bitter. ruyehara88 (49) - Killeen, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Light brown color. Thin head. Nut, roasted aromas. Dry finish. Surprising bitterness on the back end. Wears down over the course of a pint. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Red-brown, lasting beige head. Aroma is nutty, toasty sweet malt. Taste is chocolate, cocoa, nutty, sweet brown malts. decaturstevo (6240) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Brown/red pour with very light off white head and lace. Aroma of roasted malt and light chocolate. Flavor is light chocolate with a hint of sweet. A bit thin and fizzy, but very drinkable.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep, acorn brown with a thin tan head. Malty, slightly woody aroma with a hint of hops but not too much there. Flavor is light and crisp with a a bit of chocolate malt and a bit of a hoppy bitter finish, but much like the aroma there isn’t much to it. The best thing about RJ Rockers’ brews are their patriotic names. bubbleflubber (2210) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2009
On draught at the High Country Beer Fest, it pours a nut brown into the glass, with a creamy tan head that leaves window-wash lacing. The nose is nice, of chocolate malt and roasted, toasty notes. The flavors follow somewhat in tow, with a malty front, maybe some hints at dry-roasted almonds mid-palate, and closes a bit bitter toward the finish. The mouthfeel is thinner and light-bodied, with aggregate carbonation. Decent brew, but doesn’t stand apart from the "brown ale" crowd as anything special.

nickd717 (4644) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Aroma: Nice malty nose, caramel, honey, chocolate, toasted malts
Appearance: Nice brown color, clear, tan head
Flavor: Like the nose, malty sweetness up front, sweet, roasted characteristics too
Palate: A bit watery/thin, decent mouthfeel
I’d seen this one in the store a few times, but never bought it. This beer is fair, I would like a bot more body in a brown, but it had a decent taste, and a nice enough nose.
First rating from the great state of South Carolina, bottle sampled at Brickskeller in DC. Clear medium brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is malt and a little chocolate. Flavor is caramel malt, brown sugar, nuts, and a little chocolate. A little thin on the palate. Average overall.
