A German Style brown ale brewed with dark, rich Belgian specialty malts and domestic whole hops. The alt will have a dark copper color and will have a slightly fruity, bittersweet flavor. It is a beer for the more adventurous, for people with an appreciation for a beer with a rich malt character and a balanced hop finish.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle thanks to Ericandersnavy. Pours brown with some ruby hue’s, beige head. Not much aroma, some very slight fruit and hops. Flavor is more bitter then sweet, faint hints of fruit. Palate is light body, high carbonation. Overall, not bad but not very good. Pretty dry.

SpringsLicker (3501) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this one. Dark brown, ruby tinged body that throws up an off-white head. Leathery malt aroma. Sweet overall with some sourness that leads to a tangy finish.

Shag (2879) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2008
A dark brown appearance with a beige head. The aroma contains some nutmeg, caramel, and chocolate. The flavor is a bit dry with some caramel, chocolate with a nutty presence. This seems more like a brown than any alt Ive had but it was pretty good anyway.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Thin brown pour with no head, looks like a coke. Juicier bodied brew with toasted malts and caramel and vanilla touch. Dusty malty fruit character, with a souring, quiet finish. Decent brew.

puboflyons (3231) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 25, 2008
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle with am expiration date of September. Presumably this is September 2008. Pours dark brown with a little ruby red mixed in. But it mostly brown. There is a beige, creamy head that stays around for a while. Aroma of cocoa, malts, and hops. Feels bold in the mouth. I can notice some hops in the flavor but it is not overpowering at all. Overall it comes across as crisp and clean. This was a nice brew.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle, courtesy of hopscotch. Pours a dull brown color with a small tan head. Nice bright, lively sweet malt nose with bread crust and date sugar notes. Lots of bread crust in the body. Thin dry finish. A bit gassy but good.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a cloudy dark brown, with a medium, well-retained light khaki head. Very mild aroma, tough to pick out much at all, although it wasnt offensive in anyway. A touch of light fruits, maybe some caramel malt, and a little biscuity. The flavor was of typical alt style, fairly mild, with not a huge amount of flavor. A little musty, some grapes and light malt flavors arose. Pretty forgetable, but drinkable.
