Deep brown appearance; small, off whte head and light lacing. Roasted malt aroma, some dark fruit, and layers of chocolate. Chocolate malt taste with modest sweetness, some characteristics of pine nuts; hops more noticable as it finishes. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel. Dry nutty aftertaste. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2007
12oz bottle. Filtered with a deep ruby brown hue. Syrupy malt y with a cocoa cookie aroma. Medium bodied with smooth malts. Nice bright hop finish. Caramel and cookie malt flavors. Zesty and zippy malts. Medium effervescence. Piney and spicy hops. Touch of that cola nuance. Hint of dark dried fruits. Good toasty flavor. Good stretching dryness. Balnced between the malts and hops. Between the initial palate to the finish, from the sweet to the dry. Enjoyed this brew! bryandhargrave (165) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2007

Pours a deep brown chestnut with a bunch of amber notes and a medium creamy bubbly tan head that left lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, toasted malt, caramel, nuts, light citrus notes, vanilla and some dark fruits. Flavor of caramel, milk chocolate, toffee, toasted malt, nuts, light spicy hop character along with some citrus, vanilla and some hop bitterness. This may be my own opinion, but with American in the title I want to see more citrus floral hops in the nose and a touch more bitterness. Dont get me wrong the malt character in this beer is nice. The chocolate notes in the aroma and flavor are both really nice. So in the end...a really solid beer, just want more hops in my American Browns.

Dragon pack bottle. Pours deep brown with 1-finger off-tan head. Nose is roasty dark malt, cacao, nuts, peaty brown sugar. Tastes malty, earthy, with brown sugar, walnut, and cacao in the finish. Nice balance and complexity, and yet another winner from St. George, as far as I’m concerned one of the premier brewers in Virginia, or anywhere else for that matter.

Robust chocolate malt aroma. Very dark amber color with a medium tan head. Sweet chocolate taste with a light bitterness mixed into the finish. Creamy palate. TheBeerGod (6253) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Had this at St. George Brewing in their sampling room. Nice dark brown body. Nose was great! Cocoa, strong nuttiness, rich malts and faint hops. Taste was just as good as the aroma. More nuttiness with a dark chocolate hint and a strong malt backbone. Body was full and almost creamy in parts. Finishes with light hops, more malt, and light nuttiness. Good stuff!

Bottle: By far the better of the trail pack so far. Poured a dark brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is enough chocolate to cover the alcohol. Taste is really smooth with a slight bitter choclate aftertaste. Airlifter (134) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Pours a watery dark brown with big bubbles. Looks just like a cola in the glass. Nice malty, earthy aroma. Good flavor. Lots of chocolate, coffee, and some sweetness. A hint of fruit...prunes?! Thin mouthfeel for a beer this dark, but overall a good brew. Capa (3397) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Deep brown pour with a thin brown head. Chocolate, molasses, toasted malts, milk aroma. Medium, smooth body. Chocolate flavor with toasted malt, molasses, biscuit, and a lightly herbal, fruity hop finish. Light bitterness. Very nice, full fledged brown.
