DiarmaidBHK (3821) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Draft at top hops beer shop. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves trace lacing. Nice nuttiness on the nose. Very crisp and flavorful on the tongue although the flavor fades a bit as it warms. Still it’s a solid example of the style.

Nice chalky bitterness, crisp mouthfeel; not much aroma--easy to drink enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap pours with a slight head. Brown chestnut color. I'm not a brown ale aficionado but this does grow on me. First sip is transitory, aligning my taste buds for what is to come. Settles into a nice mellow ashen ride. Aftertaste is not smooth but I don't expect this from a brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WLG423 (201) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Aromas of coffee, toast and pine. Pours out a dark brown with flavors of toasted peanuts, coffee and chocolate with a bitter, slightly piney finish. A bit over carbonated for the style but overall pretty enjoyable.

tap at Alewife as part of the Nacho festival. Pours clear brown with white head. Nose of mlat and nuts. tastes lightly nutty, of resin, malt, earth, leather, and berries. Ok brown ale but a little light bodied

Growler from Brouwerij Lane. Pours a dark brown with mild head. Nice caramel and light malt aroma. Taste is a bit of sweet malts and hint of bitter. A very good brown ale, sort of like a darker newcastle.

English pint (tap) at Rattle N Hum with Erica. Pour is a dark brown - almost black - with minimal head. Aroma is nuts and chocolate and palate is more of the same, but with a roasted malty undertone that kind of takes over. Smoky and bold. Was never a huge fan of the brown style, and this beer is not delicate or balanced enough to get me to reconsider.
