Seemed pretty bitter for a brown ale. More like a really hoppy IPA. Without that it would have been a flavorful beer. Nowhere near as good as their Pluff Mud Porter.

Very earthy, almost rank finish. Good initial toffee but then tons of alcohols, diacytls, and fussils with a hint of sourness. Could be infected but overall not good.

12 oz can, poured into pint glass

medium brown in color, not much head. as for the smell and taste - it's okay, but can't put my finger on it, but the high level of hops don't seem to blend well with the malt flavors. on the thinner side for a brown ale.
