Pours a translucent mahogany from the bottle with an off white head that dissipates quickly but leaves some lacing. Aroma is kind of weak coffee. Aggressive carbonation in the mouth with notes do roasted malt and coffee. Feels a bit bitter because of the carbonation. This is a good brown ale but not great.

From a bottle. A clear brown body with a thin off white head that had some retention. Aroma was of heavy roasted malts a nutty quality too it. Two dimensional for the most part but very rich. Flavor had a nice balance between the malty flavors and the nutty flavor. A nice slightly dry finish. Easy to drink with a full mouth-feel.

Probably is the best brown ale out there. Great taste and finish. Aroma is really pronounced.

On tap. Pours a dark brown with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel sweetness, bit of chocolate and grain. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate and some caramel sweetness. Light bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Medium body, smooth and quite creamy with a nice malty backbone. Enjoyable beer, good for a few.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegmans. Amazing aromas of malty sweetness, slight notes of cocoa, and most importantly it smells like beer. Tastes like an above average but with a nice caramel sweetness..

One I like better as it warms. When it was colder there was a tingling on the tongue that seemed to mask tastes. As it warmed a bit (30 mins out of the fridge) the taste came through. Toasted malts at the back end. A bit of a hop presence. Still...a bit thin. Brown ales are not my favorite, but this one is pretty decent.

Pours a clear dark amber color with an active, foamy cream-khaki head. Aromas of medium toast malt, a little fruity, and an effervescent quality even after the head attenuated. Mouthfeel more creamy and thick than I would’ve expected. Flavors very closely approximate the nose.

"agreed on the "best" part of the brown, or almost at least. wonderful roasty malt aroma and even better flavor. smooth, but thin like most browns. VERY well done for the style. another winner from John :)"
