Pours a nice mahogany red brown in color with a light tan head that has great retention.

Smell is a mix of both malt and hops forward. Malt smells lightly roasted, husky and grainy. Hops smell mainly piney and herbal.

Taste follows the nose with a mixture of malt and hop both coming through on the front end. Malt is semisweet and lightly roasted letting a little bit of the husky grain flavor come through before it is overridden by a big oily herbal and pine hop presence that is pretty bitter.

Mouthfeel is good. medium to light body is offset by a big resiny oily hop presence that has mild bitterness. Mild carbonation helps soften the bitterness but not by much. (673 characters)

This is a big brown being offer by Solemn Oath. The beer poured a clear brownish amber with white head. The scent had a maple base with fresh hops that leaned toward pine. The taste was a good mixed between bread and pine needles. The mouthfeel was full in body with ok carbonation. Overall this is good and I would try it again. Proabably could be classified as an India Brown Ale. (382 characters)

2015 Release (6.6% ABV)
Reviewed on May 4th, 2015
22 Fl. Oz. bottle
Served in a Nonic Pint Glass

Poured a clean mahogany body with a nice amber glow. A light tan head formed (roughly half of an inch in thickness), collapsed, and left a sparse amount of lacing.

Toasted grains. Caramel. Burnt toast. Trace of nut. Tart, roasted tone overall.

Heavy hit of toasted malts hit the tongue first. Carmel, toast, and roasted nuts. Sharp notes of coffee, dark chocolate, and charred toast quickly built up, giving this a dry finish. Notes of alcohol broke through every now and then. Medium-bodied. Low/moderate carbonation.

Amped-up brown ale. Great spread of flavors but too burnt for my liking. (715 characters)

The beer looked fine and appeared to smell like a typical brown ale. The taste was definitely off. I've my share of many brown ales and this tasted like something could have been wrong but wasn't sure. Think for a brown as well. I wouldn't recommend but would try it in bottle or on tap again to compare. (308 characters)
