Bulk_Carrier (3706) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass at the brewery. The appearance was a fairly decent hazy brown color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white film of a head. The smell had a fairly decent earthy to sweet to bitter to somewhat rolling roasty nutty to even just a tad of vanilla in there. Yeah, its there, super slightly, but its there. The taste took those previously stated flavors and combined to taste. Mmmm....it ended up coming across pretty good as it combined. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation left a bit to be desired, but no worries as it came across super smooth rolling over my tongue in a super smooth sort of way. Overall, just an absolute wonderful Brown Ale. This is the kind of brown ale that brown ale fans could get behind!

Ibrew2or3 (8155) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2007
On draft at brewery. This beer poured sort of dark copper to amber in color with thin off white to tan head. There wasn’t much aroma to speak of. I think I smell a bit of sweet malt and a touch of hops. The flavor had a slight caramel to nutty maltiness mild hop bitterness. OK beer.

This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent uncarbonated brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of mild malt and crisp hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Dogbrick (11467) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2006
Sample at the brewpub: This brew is dark brown with ruby around the edges. Thin light beige head with fair retention. The aroma is nutty and hoppy. Medium-bodied and rather smooth with caramel, malt and hops flavor, with a touch of nuts. The finish is bitter and hoppy, moreso than is usual for the style. Still this is an above average beer.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2006
Draft at Black Forest Brau Keller in Frankenmuth, MI. A very small tan head that mostly diminished, decent amount of lacing, no visible carbonation, transparent, and an orange brown hue. Nose was hoppy, malty and somewhat sweet. Flavor was malty, hoppy and some chocolate. Hoppy mouthfeel. Medium body.
