I'm trying this at the brewery. It poured a rich mahogany with white head that is leaving a very nice lace. The scent had hints of dense bread. The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink. Good bread base with touch of sweetness. The Mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a great beer.

Poured into a pint glass it has a dark brown body with a quarter inch thick slight beige head. Smell of rye, spice, orange, slight citrus, and lots of bready malt. Taste is much the same with a nice toffee and vanilla flavor as well. Mouth feel is full as well as carbonation and body. Definetly looks a bit too dark for a brown ale and has some characteristics of a porter , but tastes like a very flavorful brown and I would buy again.

Can pour. Half a finger tan head. Beer is extremely dark and the body is very thick. This beer looks and smells more like a porter than a brown ale. Taste has a lot of malt and the rye is there too. Very smooth, but relatively thick mouthfeel. Pretty good, but it feels more like a porter than a brown.

On tap at Magic City Brewfest, Birmingham. (Nice meeting you guys. Thanks for the tattoo!)

A: Medium brown with a half finger tan head that lingered.

S: Toasty malts with a rye punch.

T: And I can say the same for the taste. There's malt/rye battle for superiority going on and the taste wins. Smooth and semi-sweet. Highly drinkable.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: This one was recommended and I'm glad I got to try it. Cool brewery.

Thanks to RichJ1970 for including this in his NBS BIF #3 box. 12oz can poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a nice clean brown, with a bit of a reddish tint, and had about 1/2 inch of tan head that very good retention and light lacing.

The aroma was mostly slightly sweet malt, with just a touch of Rye. Pretty similar on the tongue, with the rye popping through a bit more noticeably. No real hop presence.

The body was smooth, even and had a semi-dry finish, something of a surprise in the style. Drinkability was very good, I could easily see knocking off a couple of these. Overall, a nice, solid brew. enjoyable, and worth a shot if you see it.

On tap at the brewery. From notes. Reviewed 30 July 2015.
4/3.5/4/4.25/4
My favorite Trim tab beer. Interesting and complex, with a velvety-rich mouthfeel. A bitterish, roasty sort of brown ale. I enjoy it!

24 March 2016 EDIT:
Freshly canned first batch. 5.5%
Pours dark and smooth. Smells malty metallic, with a little something else. The rich, smooth mouthfeel is still there, very little metal, nice bitterness, moderate roast. Velvety indeed. Completely stand by my initial review.
