Rusted copper brown. Crystal clear. Head starts big, fades at a moderate pace. Toffee and big roasty toasties. A little grainy to the nose.

Well-balanced. Malt layers on coffee shop flavors -- Starbucks beer-a-mocha-caramel-o-malt-achino or something. More or less straight-forward English ale flavors with an emphasis on the coffee bean roastedness and healthy burnt flavorings.

Super quaffable ale. Between the funny premise and the ease of consumption, this ranks up there among "conversion beers."

3.86/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12 ounce bottle with a very colorful label. Has the words “HE’BREW The Chosen Beer”, with a lot of other Jewish and Biblical references. No Freshness Date or Strength, but it is stamped as “KSA” Kosher Certified, Rabbi Approved.
Described as a ‘Rich & Robust Dark Brown Ale’.

Appearance: A lovely dark brown lucid body with chestnut hints. A huge tan brown head forms and stays. Smooth looking, the head leaves massive lacing and settles with a smooth, but pot-marked look. Not much conditioning when the beer is swirled.

Nose: Light hints of roasted malts, but it is rather reticent to reveal itself, even when deeply inhaled.

Taste: Lovely malts that are never invasive, laid back with hints of roasted coffee beans, caramel, with some dark fruits mingling in the background that occasionally wake from a deep sleep and raise their heads. A very nice laid back dark brown ale that has a well-balanced profile and an incredibly refreshing, yet very tasty, feel in the mouth. Crisp and clean.

Mouthfeel: A medium body that feels much bigger than it really is. Very smooth malt blanket in the mouth, it fair caresses the tongue!

Drinkability: Deadly Serious. This beer just goes down far too easily. Better buy a couple of these if you are intending on trying it, scrub that > get a 6-Pack!

Overall: Just like the earlier Genesis Ale, I found this to be a highly enjoyable and an extremely quaffable dark Brown Ale. Check this one out if you get chance.

The beer pours from the bottle with a rich and thick kind of sound and it produces a gigantean semi-creamy light tan head to sit a top the translucid deep brown body and the lace a glutenious sheet that welds itself to the glass. A sweet malt aroma dominates this crisp and fresh nose with the start sweet and interfused with malt, top is middling in feel. Finish is mellow in its acidity with the hops delectate and the aftertaste dry. A quite nice beer, easy on the palate and one you might have several of, so let’s call it a candidate for a “session beer”.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

The beer pours a deep nut brown, topped with a thick off white head. Slightly chill hazed, clearing somewhat towards the bottom of the glass. The head dissipates into a thick ring around the glass about 1/4 through, and maintains with a bit of blobby lacing.
The aroma is richly malty, with some toffee, dark roasted coffee, and a touch of chocolate. Nice mild esters, with hints of plum, peach and pear. Minimal hops, with only a slight citric aroma. Slightly phenolic as it warms.
The flavor starts with a rich chocolatey toffee maltiness. Some very light coffee towards the middle, and reappearing in the finish. Some pear and plum esters in the middle, very tasty, and just enough to cut through the malt. The hops are rather bold, with a sharp citric bite, particularly at the very end. As the beer warms, the hops seem to grow in strength. A slight coffee malty aftertaste, with a lingering citric bitterness.
Very robust, I'd say this is more of a dark ale, rather than a drown. The hopping seems way too much for a brown ale, but perfect from something in the class of Ipswich dark. Tasty, and a pleasure to drink.

3.64/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear, deep-mahogany body with a ruby cast beneath a tall head of frothy light-tan foam. The retention is quite good and it holds well, maintaining a thin cap throughout the glass and leaving some thick streaks of lace. The nose is clean but somewhat uneventful considering the rich color of the brew, and it's slightly fruity but only hints at the dark malts beneath. In the mouth, its medium body combines with a fine, moderate carbonation to give a gently crisp start that warms to become somewhat creamy and smooth. Very nice! The flavor delivers a clean, lightly fruity and mildly caramelish malt with a hint of chocolate. It's well-balanced by a low-key bitterness that leads to a refreshing, short and dry finish. Well-brewed and easy to drink.

Appearance: This one's unique pours with a massive sized tan head chunky texture to it sort of marshmallow like sounds weird I know this is a new phenomenom opening up this beer. Well the the body appears a deep ruby brown very nice appearance lacing is even webbed patterns all around nice. Aroma: Caramel tones from the malt with a nut finish in the air not bad at all. Taste: Creamy fruit tones with a nut finish this one is "Bold" has a great amount of well balanced flavors, awesome taste. Mouthfeel: Nice fluffy texture slow carbonation perfect mouthfeel silky smooth. Drinkability: Suprisingly very good I could buy a six pack of this stuff and enjoy each one of the beers thoroughly.
