Enjoyed on tap at the 3 Floyd’s brewpub in Munster, IN. This was a pretty intense brew, so intense that I really couldn’t finish my imperial pint. Appearance is a dark murky brown with a moderate slightly off-white head. Aroma is pretty hoppy with chocolate and toffee notes. Taste is very pine hop aggressive (as the description states), almost a bit too much for me and at points it was like I was drinking hop resin with a bit of chocolate and caramel. It’s not bad, just too much. Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Not like most browns that you would have. Had at draft at 3F pub. Nose and taste has caramel and toffee, with hoppy taste and finish. Not a bad beer, but had the 3F tendancy to be a bit over hopped. rxeight (3215) - Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Very hoppy for a brown. Pine citrius aroma. Starts like a classic floyds ipa. Finishes like a brown. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Draft at Cigar City during Humahpu Day 2012.
Pours a dark chocolate brown color with amber/hazelnut hues and a half finger beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing left behind.
Sweet, slightly roasted aroma with chocolate and caramel malt notes along with subtle lactic cream and earthy hops. Hints of toffee, hazelnut and toast followed by a resinous, grassy pine character.
Medium bodied with a strong hop presence up front that provides a dry bitterness that dominates the flavor. Dry grassy pine needle flavor is very prominent, overpowering most of the malt notes. The hops are slowly countered by sweet and roasted dark malts. It tastes more like an India brown ale with subtle notes of toffee, chocolate, caramel and nut. Pretty good but too hoppy for the style in my opinion. HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2012

Pint draft at R.J. Grunts. Cinnamon, brown sugar, and hops pop out. It wasn’t too bubbly on my tongue, and it had a stronger abv presence than most brown ales I’ve tried. Medium-to-heavy bodied. It’ll fill you up. hopscotch (11180) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft… CCB’s Hunahpu’s Day 2012… Pours a clear light brown with mahogany highlights and a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is roasty and lightly smoky with a nice, piney hop nuance. Lightly toasted, heavily hopped flavor – no nutty or chocolaty notes here. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with modest carbonation. Crisp, snappy finish with lingering bitterness. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2012
On draft at Hunahpu Day 2012. Pours a sienna brown color with a white head. Nose is some toffee, some caramel, some hops. Flavor is similar- easy-drinking malty beer with a nice hop addition. Medium in body and nice overall. daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Brown pour at Huna day. Nice creamy head. Aroma is simple but delicious...hops, toffee, caramel. Flavor is really hoppy up front and settles into some nice biscuit, caramel notes. Good stuff. Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2012
On tap at the pub. Nice brown color with a finger length head that dissapears. Aroma is slight, Carmel and citrus. Flavor is Carmel, toffee and malt. The hop addition is perfect. Slight bitterness and very smooth blend. Mouthfeel is medium to light. This beer is very good.
