Bottle while at b-laws house. Aroma of dark roasted malts, caramel. Taste is slightly tart. Pretty good mouthfeel. Medium body. Ok.

Best part of the beer... an impressive head. Light hop aroma, taste is slight hop unbalance and astringent grain very light. Thin on the tongue, not much body. Light sweetness. Craft beer Blah. bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Good not great but brown ales are not my favorite anyway. Dark brown in color small to medium off white head. Aroma is lite not much to say here. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
10/8/13. 12oz bottle from a mix 12pk from Warehouse. Opened this and a Patriot Pale Ale and they were both gushers. Ugh. Original pour was about an inch of hazy amber beer with 5 inches of tan head, even after a careful pour. Eventually it settles and we have a smaller head that fizzes away fast. Lightly tart, dusty apple aroma, like fresh, warm apple cider, with a bit of cardboardy caramel. Mediocre flavor as well, apples and caramel with a dash of cardboard. This really reminds me of inexperienced extract homebrew.

1/11/2010. From bottle. Dark amber color with a white head. Caramel aromas with sweet malt. Chocolate, caramel and fruity flavors. Kinda bland. DCLawyer (2845) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Draft->shaker. Medium brown with foamy offwhite head. Malt, wet hay, grains, cereal. Messy and too sweet. VenomousViper (25) - Oak Hill, West Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Pours almost a ruby red when held to light. Took me 5 minutes just to get it poured, lots of fluffy head. Smells of nut, caramel, and malt, the malt being the strongest. Tastes sweet, with caramel and dark chocolate with a roasty finish on it. Not very dense, pretty smooth actually. Not bad but nothing stands out to make it fantastic either. Not bad overall though for my first RJ Rocker brew. thechandler (593) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Pours a medium-dark shade of brown with a nice thick foamy head that sticks around. Aroma is sweet...smells like crystal malt, rather than chocolate or brown. Not that that’s a bad thing. Flavor is sweet. Not much depth. Just a little bite on the tongue of hops. Very smooth and drinkable.
