Pours brown with brick red hints. Full brown head that dissipates slowly. The aroma is burnt malts with a bit of nuttiness or molasses, but mostly burnt malt. The flavor was a bit sweet and a bit sour. You get burnt malt, a slight nuttiness (that you would expect) but really overwhelming burnt malt and an astringent body. I suppose the dryness is hop presence but they come across as overly acidic. I was disappointed by this one, which is sad as my expectations were low to begin with.

You like sweet molasses?! Well here ya go - tons of it in the aroma - very nice, but almost overwhelming. Taste is also very syurpy sweet, but luckily, it has a dry hoppy finish to add some kind of balance. A well made brew, but not something I’d drink much of.

Very dark, reddish brown and thick. barely a head. What an interesting aroma! Pleasant and floral, slightly earlthy. The flavor is odd and unbalanced: more hoppy than most brown ales and less nutty. Alcohol is pretty evident, and even tastes more than 6.3%. Bitter and astringent finish.

Darkest brown pour I’ve ever seen on a brown ale (I’ve had porters that were lighter) - sticky, sweet aroma of brown sugar, clove, molasses - surprisingly bitter at first, settling into a much milder sweetness than the aroma suggests - more brown sugar and the distinct nuttiness you’d expect from the style - finishes a bit bitter and somewhat chalky and ashy - the finish kind of ruins it for me.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Pours to a beige, creamy, quickly but not fully disapating head. The body is a hazy dark mahogany. Decent lacing. The aroma is heavily nutty, sorghum, light brown sugars. The flavot is melted brown sugar, sorghum, toasted hazelnuts and walnuts. For a brown, this isn’t bad. I’m still not a huge fan, but this seems to be well made. The palate is lightly creamy yet slick and medium bodied. Lingering flavors.

Man, this is getting bad!
I already forgot who it was that sent me this bomber just a short while ago????

Rating # 840
Pours a bursting brown body with a frothy khaki colored head. The aroma is filled with chocolate and mixed nuts, walnut, hazelnut, almond, cashew, peanuts… valiantly nutty! Suggestions of Coco Puffs and cola; loads of caramel and the burnt smokiness of toffee… Sugar Daddys… the candy; not those that snobbish chicks request! Chewy and luscious… a biscuity finish….. a Great Brown Ale!

TheBeerGod (5924) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown with splashes of ruby. Small tan head that deteriorates into random bubbles. Nose is malty and sweet with a lot of nuttiness and mild earthiness. Mild hop notes and cocoa as well. Taste has a nice caramel sweetness along with light choco notes. Some strong nuttiness and light hops. Mild bitterness to this as well. Body is lighter than expected but creamy. Mild carbonation feel. Finishes with more chocolate and nuttiness (like chocolate covered peanuts) and light earth tones. Some lighter hops and hints of dried fruit. Not bad.

Had on tap at the brewpub in Healdsburg. Pleasant, cola brown pour with a creamy mocha colored head. Aroma is earthy, some chocolate and caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet, with some caramel, and chocolate and has a bit of a roasted back end. Mouhfeel is just a bit on the thin side.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Courtesy of Slob. Strong roasted malt aroma with a tinge of brown sugar in it. Deep brown with a beautiful thumb thick mocha head. Roasted malt and some sour/citrus components that seemed out of place. Crisper and more carbonated than anticipated as well. Was a bit of a let down for a beer I was really looking forward to.

Dark brown with some ruby highlights. Nice creamy light tan head. Aroma is nutty, roasted malts, milk chocolate and brown sugar. Flavor is heavy on the roasted malt but with a spicy, hops backbone that carries through to the finish. Body is light to medium with a bit stronger carbonation than I expected. A good brown ale with plenty of roasted malt to go around. Pete Brown would be proud (whoever he is)
