A sweet dark ale, medium body with chocolate and coffee overtones. Full flavored, but not as rich and heavy as most stouts and porters.

Had a quick sample of this at the Fenway location. Pours a translucent, dark brown with ruby edges and a creamy white head. Aroma was faint, some nutty malts, crackers, slightly sweet. Flavor is similar, sweet and chewy, nutty, bready. Finish is watery. Forgettable.

TeamBigEvil (13) - , Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2008
On Tap At Fenway brew pub. Poured a dark brown with a small head. Had a strong bad aroma. Smelled as if there was a bacteria issue. Taste was very sour, maybe they should call it a belgium brown ale. Could not finish the glass.

Page 70 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and I had this at the Boston Fenway Park location. This might be the best Brown Ale I have had and I even ordered a second one. Only 156 of MJ’s 500 Classic Brews to go.

On tap at brew pub. Not bad but my least favorite of some great beers I tried. A bit sweet and lacking a real nutty backbone.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2008
Tap at Fenway location. Pours a deep dark brown with a decent head and some lace. Aroma is light coffee, nutty chocolate and some light solvent. More dark chocolate in the flavor, toasted malts, nutty, light pineyness, caramel malts, and a thin body and weak aftertaste.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 26, 2008
From the Fenway location - Poured a clear, dark reddish brown in color with a small light tan head. Aroma was of dark roasted malts with a hint of some chocolate and mild of hops. Flavor was slightly sweet with notes of caramel and flowery hops mixed in with the roasted malts. Palate was surprisingly thin, but overall a very drinkable beer.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Had on tap at the Boston Brookline location at the suggestion of the bartender. Appeared a brownish red. Had a sweet smell of nuts and malts. Taste was also of sweet mal and nuts with some mild hops coming to the front in the finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Tap at Canal Street Location: Amber/brown pour with a thin tan head. Chocolaty, roasted aroma; reminiscent of tootsie rolls. The upfront flavor is slightly flowery, soapy, almost mildly tart, which leads to a roasty brown sugar like finish. The flavors aren’t really harmonious or balanced, but it’s still not bad.
