A fqir Brown Ale. Godd taste on first sip but the finish is not very good. Slightly dry. Good color, head but an average beer for sure!

joejames (312) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours reddish brown, two finger beige head, some lace and decent retention. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is mainly sweet with just a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, mouth feel is a little thin. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of toffee, roasted chocolate malt, nuts and brown sugar. It’s alright, nothing out of the ordinary.

Big healthy white head, Aroma is brown sugar, cinnamon bread, malt Taste is sugar cinnamon, bread, (do I taste beignet). Very full, sweet and tasty. Medium carbonation that lasts. Very pleased. I’ll buy this again.

Hard to tell looks, from bottle. Light caramel aroma, but good bitter taste, caramel and toffee tones. Nice beer. (New Orleans 201505)

willisread (621) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 25, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of grain, chocolate, brown sugar and molasses. Taste is fairly sweet on the palate. Great balance. Rich and full-bodied flavor with average carbonation. Solid brown ale with a nice malty finish.

Eructoblaster (3294) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle - 355ml. Very dark brown body with a thin beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with roasty and woody hints. Its good malty/hoppy taste carries woody, roasted cereals, and some subtle liquorice notes. Ends with a decent bitter/roasty finish. Enjoyable.

Pours a clear dark brown with auburn hues and a small light-brown head. Aroma of nuts, roasted malt, caramel and a touch of chocolate. Flavour pretty much follows the aroma but is milder then the aroma leads you to believe. It has quite a dry finish. Body’s a little flat and light.

Drjohnrock (545) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2015
Poured from 12 ounce bottle purchased as part of an Abita variety 12 pack from Jeff’s Marathon, tasted on April 5, 2015. Dark brown hue, strong malty aroma, moderate malt flavor with chocolate, coffee and toffee elements. Some chemical notes keep this from getting a higher score. Still, better than I remember it from the mid 90’s at Abita’s brewpub.

This shit brown. Got head, not like a BJ but foam. Smells like some swwwweeet lousiannnnn sugahcane and a little bit uh mohlahsis. Smells finer than miss Louise’s sweet tea, who eee. Roll tide. Tastes like somebody done toasted something tasty and made it a beer, but with caramehl. Uh huh. Caramehl. When this gets in mah mouth, it makes me wanna dance a jig. I reckon this would be great with squirrel and dumplins. Or maybe during a date with mah sister. Roll tide.
