Pours a dark copper color with a large off-white/light brown head. Aroma of coffee, spices, and wood. Flavor of spicy coffee, sweet malt, and very faint alcohol. Decent. dettma (1) - Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2012 does not count
Love this local brew. Brown ales are typically kind of a middle ground beer for me, heartier than the lighter fare but never the satisfaction or depth of flavor of the heavyweights. They can get boring very quickly. This one is different. While it may be lighter in color, it's not lighter on flavor...or alcohol. If you like the idea of brown ales but haven't quite found one that bowls you over, give this one a shot.

Pours dark brown with some almond head. Aroma is sweet malt with some nice smoky nut notes. Taste is very smoky with some java notes and again some sweet malts. Very nice beer. smith4498 (3641) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2012
Pours medium brown color with off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and oak. Similar flavors. Medium body with moderate carbonation. rdixon77 (2763) - Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 Wonderful Georgia Beer. Pour is nice brownish-copper with a thin white head. Aroma is fresh roasted coffee. Has an earthy taste to go along with dark chocolate, and coffee. A touch of woodiness (oak?) and sweetness camouflage the alcohol. Great rich and creamy mouthfeel, especially for the flavoring. Excellent brown. Definitely want to give this brewer another go round.

Savannah, Ga - World Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling dark copper with a slight off white head that leaves just a bit of lacing. Very fragrant aroma with hints of fresh brewed coffee, a hint of pepper. Full-bodied flavor with some sweet toffee notes, a whiff of chipotle peppers, a bit of brown sugar. Belly warming - alcohol is noticed - but sits right. Sticky mouthfeel. Rather impressed - nice surprise. ratebeef (4) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2012 does not count

Pours deep amber, with some lacing. Has a blend of earthy tones, nuttiness, and is somewhat savory. Very malty, tastes a little like carbonated sweet wort, hides the alcohol well too. jwr07 (113) - Decatur, Georgia, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours a relatively clear reddish brown. Wood and nuts on the nose. Competent carbonation and mouthfeel. tastes of dark malt, some caramel and toffee, a bit more nuttiness, and a pleasant bit of sweetness. quality imperial brown. maekchu (3847) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle. Contract brewed. Sweet, caramel, roast aroma w/ some floral hop bouquet. Dusky, dirty brown color w/ steady carbonation. Little head. Light sweet caramel flavors w/ some hops in final. Light body, somewhat thin, mild carbonation. A sticky mild aftertaste. Very mild, the alc. is not apparent. Quite sweet and could use more flavor hopping. Is this brewery name a nod to an R.E.M.song? teorn88 (7671) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 22, 2012
Cask at GBBF2011. Pours clear brown with a small off-white head. Foam dissipates quickly. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and nuts. Hints of wood too. Flavor is similar with roastiness, some grains, wood and caramel. Good carbonation. Overall, a bit above average, nothing more.
