3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark cola brown with a thin bubbly head of a light beige hue. Nose is sweet and earthy with loads of toasted nuttiness, like pecan and almond with just a wee hint of cocoa. Flavor is earthy with a wee touch of molasses, especially on the finish, but also with a dark earthy sweetness of nuttiness and light cocoa.

Pour is ruby brown with a beige head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavor both remind me of cracker jack - caramel, nuts, roast, brown sugar. Darker fruits come out near the finish. Medium bodied.

Pours a very dark but translucent reddish deep brown. Smells of nuts, coffee, a bit of malty fruit. Flavour is on the thin side - could be much stronger - watery and a little bit sour. Body is also thin but with small lively carbonation. Not bad and very drinkable but would be much better with more to the taste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Deep brown color with a nutty aroma and a bit of bitter English style hops. Bit watery palate with quite a bit or carbonation. Flavor is subtle - nuttiness, bitter hop, malty backbone. Not sure it lives up to standards set by Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown which is similar but bigger in almost every sense.

A quality brown ale. Pours a deep chestnut brown with mocha head and great lacing. Aromas of roasted walnuts and some bitter chocolate. Flavors are roasty but smooth. Nuts and chocolate. Good stuff.

Dla mnie jest to dobre piwo ale sadzilem ze bedzie o wiele lepsze. Mala piana rubinowy kolor, lakierowana butelka. Brown Ale w stylu Angielskim, prawda ale angielskie sporo lepsze i smaczniejsze. Zbyt ostra i gryzaca nuta odczuwalna na jezyku. Troche za slodkie dla mnie

A reddish brown ale with a thick frothy brown head. In aroma, sweet nutty malt with caramel malt, coffee notes, and resinous hops. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with light nutty and coffee, lighter than expected but good.
