FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2012
12 ounce bottle- Pours out a beautiful translucent mahogany with a stout-like head, thick, khaki and long lasting. The aroma was caramel and toffee with notes of malt. Palate was absolutely perfect, scoring a 5.0, mouth filling and incredibly smooth. Taste was sweet, sweet, sweet, with caramel and dark berries. This would make a perfect desert beer with hot pecan pie. Thanks, Todd, a good addition to the fridge.

Pours a dark brown. Thick two finger khaki head. Nice retention. Nice lacing.

Aroma is chocolate malt. Toffee too. There’s some coffee in there. Smells like a typical brown ale.

Tastes a little sweet. Little chocolate, little toffee. It’s a little creamy. Its also a little watery. It is malty sweet and hopped enough to be slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium. Not as heavy as you might think. Its light enough to be drinkable anytime and also refreshing. Finishes bitter and dry.

Overall, its really tasty. Its not heavy. Its refreshing. It has good flavor. You can’t go wrong. Totally worth it if you can find it!

WVHouseofBeer (931) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Pours dark brown with a small khaki head. Leaves some lacing. Aromas and flavors of chocolate, molasses, nuts, and perhaps a little bit of caramel. Body is pretty light and watery. Overall it is nothing amazing but certainly not bad and very easy to drink.

This was okay. Not exceptional, but certainly drinkable. I wouldn’t mind trying it again.

Deep brown with thin beige head. Roasty malty aroma. Slight astringency. Mild choc and malt. Middling at best. Narp.

Samma (128) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2015
From bottle: Very dark brown in appearance. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel. Curious combination of malts and hops. Is almost like a black IPA. I’d like more chocolate notes.

Iznogud (1549) - CROATIA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle, 355 ml at O’hara, Zagreb. Shared with JFK10000. Pours dark brown with beige head. Malty, milk chocolate, very drinkable. Light sweetish, bit watery. Nothing spectacular, but really liked the drinkability, would be nice as everyday beer.

swannycellars (43) - Swanbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2015
Pours deep brown with thin beige head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, a little coffee, earth. Very thin in the mouth with clean flavours of vanilla, choc, black olive, spice. In my opinion it’s very thin and short but has potential if revved up a bit. Potential session option and still better than a lot of dark beers.

UXO (823) - CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
Pours clear brown with one finger of loose light beige head demising gradually to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Nose is roasty malt, coffee, chocolate, toffee, dark fruit, slight nutty. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium body tending a little to the watery, lively carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5) Not much to say here - fairly typical English Brown. The body is a little on the watery side, and the carbonation a little on the high side, as compared to more conventional browns - which actually makes it pretty drinkable, so there’s that? (12/20)

Marko (4305) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 30, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015 At Pivoteka. Dark brown body, slightly tinged with amber with a big, thick off white head. Gusher too. Raisins in the aroma. Taste... Raisins, slightly watery, diluted... sticky raisin water with light roast basically.
