Leighton (9851) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Tap at the brewpub - Amherst. Pours clear amber with a light, foamy head. OK beer, some brown bread, faint cocoa, dirt. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, some lightly toasted bread, hints of coffee and cocoa, toasted leaves. So so.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Reddish copper, you know the deal. Sweet, red fruity nose, light roast. Flavor is lightly smokey, some peat, light roasted malts. Probably the best of the Amherst brews I tried this time.

DiarmaidBHK (3165) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a nutty caramel quality on the nose. Lots of caramel notes on the tongue with some hop balance. Finishes clean. Nice example of style.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Appearance: pumpernickel bread with no haze and mahogany hints along the edge.
Nose: chocolate front and center – chocolate cake, bars, and malted milk chocolate. Godiva hot chocolate. Chocolate wafers. Chocolate covered walnuts for some dry crunch.
Palate: chocolate shines but never overwhelms – good balance. Hint of burnt dark fruits, grapes and plums specifically, in the back with stones and seeds included. Chocolate and walnuts mingle. Something indiscernible in the back.
Final Thoughts: never could lay my tastebuds on that final flavor at the back of each quaff. Overall though quite the tasty sessionable brown ale. I’d drink it again.

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Growler, thanks to LuckyDog. Nice malty aroma with roast and light cocoa. Mouthy, lightly sweet, slightly roasted, the bitterness is light and it would be better characterized as tangy. Toast/roast finish. Pretty drinkable.

On cask at brewery. Pours a murky/ cloudy moderate to light brown with no head. Flavors consist of cinnamon, clove and bread. Very thin and watery.

Christian (10779) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2009
Cask at GBBF. Amber with a small off-white head. Nutty malt aroma, with caramel, and a slightly roasted note. Sweet malty flavour with some yeast character.

ShawnMalloy (130) - Auburn, Massachusetts, USA - APR 5, 2008
Pours a light to medium brown. I couldn’t get an aroma from the sampler glass that it was poured in. High in carbonation compared to the other brews I sampled at the brewery. Sweet malts. A bit toasty. Reminded me somewhat of a root beer.
