Bottle. Pours a murky brown with a thin tan head. There’s a bit of a phenolic aroma with is off putting. Not much to the flavor, its sweet and malty up front with nothing at the finish. Brown’s are one of my favorite styles and this is just okay. I wouldn’t purchase it again but would drink it if offered.
Can from Brewfest Bev. Brown with small tan head. Roasted woody aroma with caramel cola and booze. Medium heavy sweet burnt brown sugar caramel maple syrup and fruit syrup and nuts with medium woody herbal ashy slightly medicinal bitterness. Medium-heavy body medium-low carbo. Pretty close to cloying but the unpleasant long herbal bitterness balances it. Need to give it time to warm up. Yeah, unpleasant. Might have been the rage in 1995. shawnmurphy (617) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2017
12-ounce bottle pours cloudy amber-brown with no head or lacing. Aroma: raisins, brown sugar -- both faint. Flavor: the above, yet more noticeable; with brown bread and lots of nuttiness. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, slight slick, yet with a dry finish. Kleg (417) - The Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2017
Draft at Tuckerman's Tavern in Intervale, NH. Mislabeled on the menu as a brown ale. Clear mahogany color with an off-white head and fair retention. Looks and tastes like a strong amber ale. Okay. yespr (48061) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2017

6-pk at Stiffler’s. Lively carbonation and a bit of sweet nuttiness come through. Apart from that forgettable on the whole; bit of light wheat or corn, sugary and dark bread. Thin body. Could drink a bunch but eh.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2017 Draft at Macs Tavern in Philly. Clear very dark brown amber pour. Not much head or lace. Modestly hoppy Brown Ale. Not much aroma. Tastes of browned citrus rinds, damp cocoa, cola, sassafras and melon. Semi-glossy finish. Meh. ehaak26 (725) - - DEC 27, 2016

APPEARANCE- alex0295 (2) - MERRIMACK, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 22, 2016 does not count
light brown with red tones. Great ’fluffy’ head.
slightly hoppy in an earthy (not resin or fruit/floral) way.
little bit of hop in the brginning, giving way to great malty flavors and carmel notes. Very thin body.
NOTES- billed as a hoppy brown, I think it meets that well.
It’s have a high alcohol content and very smooth. A non IPA taste. Not a huge head which I like. I read the reviews but I really like it. I’d like to try the other offers of SHED brewery.
