poisoneddwarf (1622) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Bomber into dimpled mug. Pours dark brown with amber highlights showing through when held up to the light. Has a small beige head that dissipates into a resilient blanket of foam. Aroma is bready, nutty, syrupy, milky; has faint notes of anise. Taste is lightly sweet and just a tad bitter. Has a nice nutty flavor but the body is thin. Enjoyable.

johnnyoski (415) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Draft. Medium brown color with a small tan head. Earthy aroma. Bitter, roasted nut flavor. There is an odd earthy flavor as well with an unpleasant, lingering sour taste. Nasty syrupy texture with average carbonation. Thought my taste buds would adapt to the flavor as I drank more but it only got worse. Couldn’t finish the pint.

DuffMan (6163) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle. Medium dark brown, light tan head. Aroma is caramel and light cocoa, marred a little by some metal. No metal in the flavour thankfully, just the same dark caramel as in the nose, but no chocolate or fruit really. Bitter hop note in the finish, but no real flavour from the hops. Mouthfeel is rather thinnish. Underwhelming.

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2010
draft. clear chestnut brown. clean nose of roasted nuts, grain chaff, light roast and cracked just-burnt toast. medium body, medium to heavy dryness, very clean profile - snappy toasted grains with crunchy walnuts and toasted bread. clean, enjoyable, snappy with tight carbonation and medium- hop bitterness. this is a surprisingly good brown ale given the ratings, but it may benefit on tap and suffer in the bottle.

Bottled, from Bozeman, MT. Clear nut brown, brief head. Syrupy nose with a bit of roastiness. Light-medium bodied with sloppy mouthfeel. Syrupy with notes of cranberies. Low bitterness. An unconvincing brown ale.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2010 Dark brown, fading beige head. Aroma of nut, caramel, bready malts. Taste is mild with toasty malt and lot of sweetness. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Brewery visit- seems more rich and roasty with more nut, burnt malt and chocolate.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Received a 22-oz bomber from kyzr via in person trade back in 2007. Pours a semi-clear brown colored brew with an average sized beige head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted dark malt, a hint of chocolate, roasted nuts and some toffee. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of dried roasted dark malts, some chocolate and a hint of fruit. Finish is semi-sweet that slowly turns into a dry dark malt aftertaste with minimal bitterness.
