Toasted grain nose, brown color. Nutty grain flavors at first, caramel sweetness. Like the Schwarzbier there was a butter note that I didn’tlike.

EithCubes (5187) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle. Roast and slight toffee with nuttiness with some white wine notes. Nice toast malt. Amber body with heavy visible carbonation and rich, rocky, soapy beige head. Fruity, slightly sour taste with a strong dry yeastiness. Medium body. May have suffered a bit from advanced age; not really a worthy take.

BREWMUSKCLES (2339) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2007
thinnish flavor which is quite nutty and somewhat bitter with a mildly sustaining flavor. refreshing and watery at the same time! a bit scotchy in the aroma. touch of quality sweetness which has not been overdone. nothing to brag about but quite enjoyable indeed! creamy consistancy.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2007
sampler at the brewpub. Vanilla and caramel in the aroma. Taste is stale malts, vanilla and butter- pretty bad diacetyl, not good.

biznizness (1121) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Ick, not good. Sort of a sour flavor, thin body, really lacking the full flavor of a good brown ale. Bitter finish... will pass on this next time.

TaktikMTL (6290) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2007
Verre de dégustation, provenant d’un fût, dégusté au Atlantic City Beer Festival 2007 (Atlantic City, NJ). Arôme: Odeur de malt et de noix. Apparence: La couleur est brune translucide. Présence d’un mince col crémeux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe d’houblon. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est mince avec une texture légèrement crémeuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel sucré en arrière goût. (Rating #902)

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Draught @ Camelback mountain ski lodge (right down the road from the brewery). Darker brown with an odd, but acceptable darker malt aroma. Taste was passable. but a bit too grainy and unrefined. Drinkable, but not very good at all. These guys don’t seem to put that much effort in - maybe Iron Hill will open up a place nearby and straighten these guys out.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - FEB 25, 2007
A hollow, acidic, green-apple tinged mess. Bizarre spice notes and a very thin body, little to no sweetness nor even a firm dry backing to the finish. Bleh.

had this beer on tap in Dunmore Pa. I swear it smelt like a deer. And even tasted a little bit like one. Not a good beer. I won’t rule out the brand .....yet

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2006
"Fresh" bottle, less than 30 days old. Glossy, mossy brown pour; cocoa red in the glass with a small foam halo. Clear as crystal. Shy bouquet of toffeeish malt and gingerbread spice hop. Mild buttery and breadcrust malt flavor, accented by Target allspice and EKG nutmeg character. Gently carbonated. Finish barely suggestive of citrus, chocolate, and cola. Light palate, but not watery. Clean aftertaste. An alright attempt at a northern English brown/session beer, just needs more personality. Still, the best I know from Barley Creek.
