Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark brown color with a large head. Has a strong malt aroma and has an excellent hop/citrus flavor. The palate is a medium bodied American Brown Ale. Excellent beer with an eye-catching can. Highly recommended

Man this stuff is really good; weed flavorEd brown ale. Poured At a perfect temperature with a short-lived light tan head, good lacing And a clear brown color. Aroma is very fresh hops and dark Malt. Flavor is like aroma very well balanced between the three major flavor characteristics. Body is chewy & excellent. There is just an ever so slight hint of medicinal flavors between hop malt combination here but basically it's just an excellent beer. Like to try drying it out & smoking it.

this happens to be my current favorite. although, I will say the last 6 pack I bought was a little off, irony tasting, and waaaay over carbonated. each can I opened nearly exploded as if someone had stood and shaken it for 30 mins. im giving them the benefit of the doubt though since I like it so much. ive had black ipa's that taste pretty close to this but the cleanness/smoothness ive experienced with this beer in the past (not this last 6 pack) has put it above and beyond all others. it pours really well, in the past, and typically has a really nice head on it similar to a good porter.

From a can. Gift from a friend who was down South recently.

Appearance: Deep hazy brown. Thin head with very little lacing and a small white cap that didn't last long.

Smell: Sweet, hoppy and herbal. An almost soapy aroma, but not in a bad way.

Taste: A little thin and semi-sweet malty flavor up front, followed by a unique bitter hops flavor from the Amarillo and Nugget hops. This is a unique tasting beer, and I like the originality of the flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and a bit thin. Semi-sweet with a little bitter bite on the finish. Not bad.

Overall: This is a good and original interpretation of a Brown Ale with the extra hops thrown in. The use of Amarillo and Nugget hops give it a unique and herbal flavor profile that I like. I would drink this again.

A: Had this beer on-tap at Gene's Haufbrau, poured into a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick consistency. There was a thin creamy head that quickly dissipated. Good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of malt, something sweet and sugary, and a nutty quality.

T: Tasted of malt, the ubiquitous brown ale nuttiness, light hops, and a hint of toffee as well. A vibrant, well-rounded, surprisingly forceful flavor.

M: A fairly well-carbonated beer with a slightly dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A bit different than the typical American Brown Ale, but tasty nonetheless. Drinkable.

Single finger slightly tan head on a hazy brown body with nice lacing. Aroma is excellent with sweet toffee, caramel malts, brown sugar. Flavor is simple but incorporates the brown ale caramel malts and brown sugars well without being too sweet with a subtle earthy hop presence. Medium body's bad light to moderate carbonation. I admit I had this after a very piney and tart pale ale so it is hardto judge but it was excellent overall.
