12 ounce can canned in April 2013. Thanks Brandon!
Pours clear, deep reddish brown in color, with a small but durable tan head.

Aroma: a balanced and very appealing mix hops and malts.
The flavor leans more to the hoppy side, and is certainly a bit hoppy for style.
Medium body; crisp, medium+ carbonation.

Local brew from Savannah, GA. Popular with several of my friends but I am not a big fan of brown ales. This may grow on me if I drink it more often. Has a good dark smoky color.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, roasted malts. Taste is hops up front, nutty, malts at the finish, just a touch of chocolate. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Sampled at the Distillery from the very first keg available to the public. Excited about this new brewery opening in my backyard!

Poured a dark brown with reddish highlights and a creamy ivory head that leaves nice lacing as it fades. Nice Brown Ale aromas of roasted nuts, chocolate, caramel, and some nicely bitter hops. Flavors follows the nose nicely, lots of expected Brown Ale flavors of chocolate, coffee, and roasted nuts but again the finish is a nicely bitter blend of espresso and resinous hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with a medium body and good carbonation. Overall a very solid Brown Ale, I'm gonna re-visit this many times!

A: Dark brown with a ruby tinge, slightly cloudy and you can’t see any carbonation. Three whopping fingers of beige foamy head.

S: Coffee, chocolate, dark toasted malts, vanilla, orange candy, citrusy.

T: Dark toasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate with citrusy notes, orange candy and vanilla, then a metallic note on the end. Light bitterness. Light sweetness.

M: Thick bready, lightly syrupy body. Medium foamy carbonation.

O: The dark malt and light citrusy combination remind me of a lighter version of a black IPA. Really enjoyable. Got this at Whole Foods in Savannah, drank it in Tampa July 21st, 2014.

Nose of malt, earthy, metallic, faint nuttiness, bready, burnt nuts, . Taste chocolate, hops, chalky, watery, roasted malt, pine, slight bitter finish. Not the best Brown!
