4a verguiada consecutiva a las pajaritas lloronas. Quien es su tata? ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has an awesome aroma of toasted malt.
Appearance- A beautiful brown color that has a thick light brown head on top.
Taste- An excellent toasty malt flavor with a caramel finish.
Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation and has a semi-creamy feel to it.
Overall- Excellent brew, first time drinking this and it won’t be the last.

Thanks, Suttree. Pours a big tan rocky froth that left some excellent lace. Full nose of toasted malt, biscuits and hardwood. Lovely deep cherry color. Great hickory nut, oak and chocolate malt. Not at all sweet to my palate. Dry and quite drinkable. Nice hoppiness, that may be off style, but I like it. The best brown ale I’ve had. I’d love to get more.

12 ounce bottle- poured out a translucent, chestnut brown with a very strong cola head. Aroma was sharp and a little sweet. Slightly thin, but smooth, in the palette, but the taste more than makes up for it. A surprising citrus tartness with a pleasant bitter finish. This one will be added to the beer fridge. oobawa (1858) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Looks acceptable but by no means pretty. The waves of deep, roasty, chocolate malt wafting from the pint are amazing, but be warned: the nose doesn’t prepare you for the massive hoppy attack within. Tastes like a terrific brown ale that uses its IPA longings to keep the beer clean and tight. Starts with caramel and toasted bread, eases into nutty pastry, and then the hops slowly, steadily creep in, like the rising tide, until they’ve eliminated any chance of this Brown Ale getting too sweet. Beautifully done, super tasty, and gone from Charleston, for some reason. (5/30/09)

Bottle from Ingles grocery store during a wedding weekend in Lake Lure. I’m excited; can’t get this stuff in Florida! Pours a large tan head with half-a-minute of retention. Lacing is initially tight, then spotty towards the middle of the glass. Bulbous nose of toffee and roasted coffee. Flavors present a clean, yet obvious fruit, perfume, and citrus hop presence with dark malty backbone. Metallic finish. Medium carbonation and medium/full body. Highly enjoyable. Shared a Duck-Rabbit brew that Solan got in a trade some years back and I’ve been craving this brewery ever since. obguthr (6826) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Strong tobacco nose with maple syrup highlights, wood, fig, and molasses. Awesome. Clear brown, medium tan head. Robust wood and nutty notes. Walnuts are prominent, with a pleasurable bitter char finish. Excellent hoppy ABA. Oakes (19370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2006
Hazy dark chestnut colour. Head rises huge but gently falls to a rich, inch-thick layer. Great aroma of fresh toasted grains, layers of chocolate malt and earth and an appetizingly dusty yeastiness. The body starts creamy then gets fizzier. This means the front is dominated by sweet but simple brown sugar & deglet noor-ish malts but the end features deep dark chocolate, mocha and bitter, rooty hop textures. As brawny and complex a brown ale as I’ve found that still remains true to the style. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2007
Rich mahogany in colour, thin quickly dissipating beige coloured head, some patchy lacing. The aroma is malty - the chocolate and caramel jump out at you, earthy and toasty. The flavour is of dark chocolate, a bit chalky, lightly sweet, some mocha coffee, quite nutty. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and roasty, good bitterness. A brown ale that makes you think. Good stuff.
