Can. Pours dark brown, touch of mahogany; tan head doesn't last long at all. Smell is chocolate and toffee. Taste is chocolate, some sweetness but not too much, no coffee but there is something darker and roasted. Smooth and very good texture. Not sure what brown ale is supposed to taste like ideally, but this is an enjoyable beer.

Pours a dark muddy brown with a light tan head.

Smells of chocolate, oats, and roasted malt.

Taste is chocolate up front with a burnt caramel middle, roasted malt with a touch of herbal hop bitterness. Mouth feel is largely a malt bomb with a lively carbonation. .

12oz can poured into Styrofoam hotel coffee cup. Clear deep brown with thin tan head. Aroma is toasted malts, nuts, dark fruits, coffee, brown bread, and toffee. Taste is light malt sweetness including caramel, toasted bread, nuts, and a new chocolate note. Some roasted malt, espresso, and tobacco bitterness. Medium body, great mouth-filling creamy texture, moderate carbonation, and a drying roasty finish.

This is a rich, complex, malty heavy hitter. Great by the fireside

Had this beer many times always delicious. Pours dark like a stout and smells chocolatey. Lots of chocolate flavors along with vanilla, oatmeal, and toffee.

Can purchased at Total Wine in Jacksonville, FL.

Pours a golden rusty looking brown, with a half inch off white head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like chocolate, leather, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted bread, and a little bit of roasted malt.

This is a really solid brown ale. There's a bit of a leather and tobacco note, with a good amount of cocoa powder, toasted doughy bread, caramel, espresso, and toffee. Really well balanced, drinkable, and tasty.

This is medium bodied, but pretty light on the palate, with a medium level of carbonation. It's very drinkable.

One of the better browns I've had.
