Dark brown in color, slightly cloudy with a thin head. Nice lacing. Malty aroma. Good flavor, but not quite as robust as I had hoped. Similar to a dark brown ale, but thinner in taste, almost watery. Not bad, but not great.

Doesn't strike me as a brown ale, much more like a porter: dark brown, coffee and chocolate flavor, and malty...pretty nice.

Kind of a cross between a pale ale and a brown. It's a bit more hoppy than the average brown. Pretty good. But if I'm judging it as a brown it does not match up to the greats.

Poured a very deep brown color with a fluffy tan head. Some chocolate comes out from the aroma. A hint of molasses on top of the malt flavor. Some roasted coffee as well. Overall not a bad beer!

My first reaction upon pour was "wow!, this looks serious". Pours a dark mahogany with ruby highlights. The monster tan head is very tight, dense, and long lasting, with nice lacing, the cascade upon pour was beautiful. The nose is spicy alcohol and roasted coffee. After the brew breathes though, there is a noticable dropoff to almost nothing but a hint of cereal and yeast. The flavor has a very nice balance. Lightly roasted with a hint of anise in the front, followed by low acidity in the middle and a deep roasted coffee finish. Not sure of style while rating but tastes like a good porter to me. The medium creamy body is soft to lively and finishes clean. I don't normally like browns too much but this one is nice.

Little aroma but what is there is Malty. Great appearance with a big tan head on a deep mahogony beer. Flavor is fairly light but has the flavor of roasted grain primarily. Similar in taste to a light stout. Not overpowering and fairly refreshing. NOt bad

JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Woody nose from an odd looking licorice-black, oily brew. Peated malts and anice in the first sip, and turning sort of chocolatey as it warms in the middle. Mouthfeel is oily and flat. Finish goes sour, with strange nutty, woody notes mixed in. Vinegar lingers... what the?

Old wood soaked outside. Tangy and sour flavors. Some rustic smoke flavors buried deep within.

NJBeerman013 (1052) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2003
A very rich, dark, strong brown ale. It pours a deep brown with a tan head that rapidly fades to a tiny ring around the glass. The aroma is that of burnt chocolate and roasted nut. The flavor has a strong coffee tone to it. Very malty.

Very dark brown ale with very little head. Has a nice thick palate and is not as sweet as most brown ales. Has a rich, strong flavor that is bitter like coffee. Overall, This seems to be a decent beer.
