16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Hop Alley in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Appearance: Displays a dark brown body, though there're some amber-gold hints at the edges. Foamy, faintly beige head.

Smell: Heavily toasted bread, there's a thin edge of coffee roastiness. Minor cocoa powder, faint caramel. Lightly fruity, low herbaceous hop notes.

Taste: Falls in the middle ground between toasty and roasty, with inclusions of lightly sweet chocolate and caramel. Soft fruitiness, a little raisin and cooked apple. Light herbal hops with sufficient bitterness to balance. Drying, toasty (oh, but still a bit roasty) on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Solid, likable brown ale.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
A: Pours clear dark brown with a small tan head that soon reduces to a partial coat.

The aroma is a bit weak and earthy for style. A suggestion of an offensive musty component seems to come and go.

The flavor is better. It seems like an average brown ale until the finish and aftertaste where a more generous portion of hops becomes evident.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt. The taste is surprisingly full of hops that go well with the malt.

Pours an effervescent & ruddy brown with a thumb of tan head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Toasty, not much else

T: Follows the nose, some dryness and nuttiness up front. Dryness, woody bitterness, & more toastyness as this warms, a touch of vanilla & hazelnut too. Finishes dry, toasty

MF: Light/medium body, firm carbonation

Easy enough drinking brown, would like more body & flavor complexity

From the 12 oz bottle in a pint glass via a friend from work---Thanks Randy!
This toasty beast pours a brown with light cola highlights and a very nice head of
dissipating off white foam that subsides to a thick ring, thin sudsy layer, and features
some very nice sudsy lacing. Nose of toasted malts, chocolate, and nutty malts
with a touch light coffee. Flavors hit the right notes for the style with a deeply roasted
nutty malt flavor that has light notes of dark cocoa and hints of light coffee bitterness with
a subtle herbal hop on the rear of the taste. Very nice mouth feel with medium carbonation
that is lightly crisp, medium body, and a malty finish. Overall a fantastic little brew from a new
brew to me and the little lady.

Cheers!

Great smell and look to this beer. Not really a brown ale guy, so don't necessarily love the taste. But certainly better than some that I've had.

Nice aroma and sweet malty flavor. Nothing exceptional going on here but a decent brown.
