FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2011
12 oz bottle thanks to 17thfloor, apparently a bottle from Sept 2008, so pretty damn old. Pours dark brown with a huge billowy beige head. Aroma of cocoa, nutty with some toffee and dark fruits. Flavor follows suit, a but more of a roastiness, mostly in the finish with some nutty notes and caramel. Slight metallic flavors that linger with the cocoa and roast. Light medium to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Interesting, never had a regular 5 percent beer aged like that.

Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home recovering from frustrating work. Meh, this isnt very good. Appearance is a syrupy dark brown, relatively clear, not much head. Aroma of chocolate malt and caramel. Taste is more syrupy than anything, moderate carbonation, like a light chocolate soda, its just not very good.

brokensail (16328) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
On tap @ Provisions Market. Light brown pour with a small khaki head. Chocolate syrup and club soda on the nose. Yum... Light roast, some coffee grounds, and maybe some toffee. Flavor is basically like a soda. Very watery, though... Carbonic. Some roast, coffee grounds, dirt, and a bit of toffee sweetness. Some walnuts and cocoa powder. Meh.

Bottle. A- Blood, iron, watery, dough, malty. A- Rich mahogany color, clear liquid, tan head. T- Dough, watery, malty, weak. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- This one smelled like a ball of dough that someone was baking then sliced their finger and bled into the batter. Besides this it felt like an all around run of the mill brown. Pretty generic.

Ernest (7517) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Poor metallic aftertaste, unbalanced flavor, simple boring aroma, trademark tiny SKA head, ultimately soulless...these guys really need to work on their chops.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 30, 2005
in the bottle. looks like a coca-cola. not much a head, whats there has big bubbles and dies quickly. Aroma of diacyl. finishes with a little bit of a tongue bitterness. Medium carbonation. Overbearing chalky flavor. This style of beer seems to consistently for people who want to drink a beer of style and distinction, but dont have the tastebuds for it.

Terminus (3634) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 13, 2005
bottle-pours a crimson amber hue with a small white head. aroma of carmel, toffee, and honey roasted cashews. The flavors were terrible-wet carboard and sourness. tastes like the malts and hops were old when this beer was brewed. body was thin and flimsy like most ska beers. probably the worst beer i have had from this brewery. Squidget must have got a good bottle of this (fresh?)

fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2007
It is brown. Smells a like caramel. No nut flavor or smell to be seen. Way too much carbonation. This beer foams like crazy in your mouth and interferes with any tasting much.

Bottle courtesy of aplusbreaks. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells nutty and earthy. Tastes of yogurt and tarte. Meh.

plinythederek (22) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Cracked this rude boy open out of a standard 12 oz bottle. Pours out a dark copper brown. Very slight sweet malt aroma on this one. The taste is standard for a nut brown. A lot of malt right away with a little hops to finish it. But really not a great finish with this beer. Once you swallow it the taste is gone. Thats it. It doesnt linger leaving you wanting more. Very light and not much to it. If you love Browns, you could slam a bunch of these jokers. But that would be all theyd be good for. Slamming. Not a great beer. Ill be skanking away from this one in the future. IMO son.
