Slight light brown head. Clear brown color with a touch of red.
Taste is sweet with medium body.
Average carbonation; nice malty finish.
Overall a good, pleasant beer, though a touch simple.

Bottle from mikem409, thanks Mike! Pours a muddy brown with an off-white head. Aroma is lightly dark fruity, certainly sweet with brown sugar and caramel. Taste has peat and is very sweet; brown sugar, caramel, some molasses. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly malty with a touch of late peat. Shrug? Somewhere between a scotch ale and a brown, not great. 13.4

It’s like everything.... But in the same thing... One of those rare moments when it really is good to be human. ColovianTrader (464) - - JAN 3, 2015
A nice mesh of styles. Brown ale meets IPA. Flavors of citrus hops, toffee, caramel and cider. Undertones of oranges, nutmeg and cinnamon. Nicely carbonated. Hophaze (192) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with minimal head or lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and alcohol. Taste of coffee notes, chocolate notes, and floral hops. Reminds me more of a porter or stout than a Brown but a decent beer.

Pours a mahogany color with a foamy white head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, toffee, and hops. Flavor is malty, toasty, sweet caramel, toffee, some chocolate, and light bitterness. I really enjoyed this. arrric423 (2) - - DEC 12, 2014 does not count
Moderately dark brown/amber appearance, small eggshell head on aggressive pour. Nose is coffee, chocolate, toffee with mild floral hops and some boooze. Taste is way less hoppy than I was expecting for a dry hopped imperial brown/american strong ale. Booze, chocolate, and floral notes on palate. Finish is a bit off sweet. Not what I was expecting, but drinkable. OK, but would not buy it again.
