This is a stellar brown ale. I had this beer a year or so ago and didn't think much of it. I thought it was over-hopped to be a brown ale, and didn't have much as far as flavor was concerned. I also had it right out of the fridge. At the advice of a friend I tried it again, but I let it warm up a bit before tasting (68 degrees or so). Man, what a HUGE difference!

Fridge cold, it smells hoppy, tastes hoppy, and doesn't cut it as a brown ale.
Let it sit for a few minutes and it turns into a whole new beer. Along with the prevalent but soft flavors listed above, it has an excellent mouth feel. It's smooth, fairly light, and while the flavors linger, they're not overwhelming.

Awesome beer. Don't drink it cold.

Appearance - cream colored shallow pebbled head, mahogany brown

Smell- not much, very light chocolate with a little hop

Taste- pleasant chocolate and toffee sweetness with some toasted grains middle tongue, the sweet darker malts come out at the end

Mouthfeel- medium bodied with lingering malty sweetness

Overall- a nice american brown, good to the style and full of flavor. I'll have another pint when I find myself with another layover in Atlanta
