Pours a dark brown color with a thin light brown head. Good aroma and flavor of nuts, burnt caramel and malt. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation.

Aurelius (4322) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Very smooth drinking. Aroma is cold mocha and herbal/grassy. Initial swig is a bit acidic, but then it buffers out. Choco-chalky, lightly sweet, lightly-to-moderate bittering. My guess is American hops. Borderline porter. Thanks to DW.

Whelk (123) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2007
On tap at the brewery. Strong coffee aroma and flavor. Some nutty flavors, smooth bitterness, and definitely maintains its positive qualities after a few pints.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Smells better than it looks. Brown beers are generally one of my favorite styles, but this one is weak and thin. Bitter - no hint of caramel like the description promised.

ericnixon (740) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2006
On tap at the Barrington Brewery. Nice dark brown, so dark it’s almost black, color. Kind of bitter, but otherwise no real perceptable taste. Very watery!

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Tap at the brewpub. Brown, clear, thin tan head. Roasty carmel fruity aroma. Smooth carmel roasty flavors. Medium body. Malty finish.

mkobes (2141) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Deep dark brown in color with a nice tan head. Malty and hoppy. Well balanced. Nutty. Subtle roastiness. Enjoyable.

OldGrowth (2730) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2004
Bottle: Good nose, cream, Malt ball, coffee, almond. Nice orangy/reddish brown color. No head, though ok carbonation. Sweet and bitter, Chocolate, some grapefruit, some metallic. Creamy smooth, a little bitterness on the finish. Tasty, my pick of the four i've had, kinda stouty. Might be a tad out of style with its bitterness.

MaBeer1972 (1361) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2003
On tap at the brewery. Very dark purplish brown color. Little head fades quickly. Very smooth drinking, nice malty flavor. Somewhat "woody" flavor too. Finishes just as smooth as it starts.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 30, 2003
Every time I think I've gotten completely bored with an overdone style like the brown ale, I stumble on something unexpected. This strongly malty-sweet, hazelnutty-maply smooth fruity concoction dried out nicely at the end and left an excellent impression; I knew after this (my 2nd sample) that this brewpub would be special.
