superspak (2540) - Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy dark reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, chocolate, light roast, light nuttiness, herbal, and slight raisin. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malts. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, brown sugar, light nuttiness, roast, herbal, and slight raisin. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, light nuttiness, and brown sugar on the finish for a short bit. Very nice malt flavor balance that is fairly robust, with good complexity; and zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good brown ale. Nice balance and robustness of malt flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Pours a deep chestnut, medium beige head with okay retention and decent lacing. Nose is malt, caramel, molasses. Mouth is medium bodied, dry with an underlying bitterness throughout, mildly creamy on the palate, malt, pumpernickel bread, not really complex. A basically boring, slightly sub-par brown.

Shark_Pants (162) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2014
Dark brown coke colour with a small beige head. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, a little vegemite and toast. Taste is fairly low on bitterness, vegemite, coffee, toffee, a little hazelnut. Much thinner bodied than I’d like. Not bad but doesn’t scale any great heights.

Pours a clear day mahogany. Not much head or lacing. Roasted malts, oak, hints of vanilla on the nose. Hints of bourbon, caramel. Overall, a decent brown ale.

Transfer from BA review on 7-16-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a hearty deep brown color with a huge tan head. When held up to the light a reddish hue comes through the glass. The head fades slowly to give a medium level of lacing. Smell – The smell is of chocolate, roasted coffee and some caramel. Mixed with this is a light spicy hop aroma with a somewhat peppery spice. Taste – A semi-sweet milk chocolate flavor meet the tongue. Hints of caramel and some lighter coffee flavors are mix nicely with the chocolate malt flavor. As the taste advances the caramel fades with some very light hoppy flavors that come in. Overall it leaves a lightly spiced chocolate flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The carbonation level is on the lower side with the body slightly above normal. Both suit the chocolate and roast flavors nicely, really allowing them to soak into the tongue. Overall- A rather tasty and enjoyable brown ale. It has a nice slightly sweeter flavor and a good mouthfeel.

Looks identical to a glass of coke. A typical watery and boring brown ale. Darker than most but this doesnt add to its complexity or flavour.

The aroma nutty and chocolatey. He taste isn’t as good as the aroma, it tastes like it’s missing something. Pretty good brown.
