BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2006
Bottle and served in a Newcastle Brown Ale pint glass: Cola brown with a nice frothy tan head and very good lacing. The aroma has notes of walnut, pecan, rye bread, dry powder mocha, and moderate earthy yeast esters. The taste is slightly twngy with a nice acidic background supproting the mild and nutty malts. There is sort of a metallic undertone to this beer. Smooth and simple but never boring which so many brown ales can be. The feel is chalky and short, the weak point of the beer. Just above average brown, an okay session brew good with simple foods.

Bottle. A very dark brown color with a light brown head. A nutty malt and caramel aroma with a smooth palate and smokey flavor.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 22, 2006
bottle-pours deep brown with a caramel tinge around the rim of the glass with a nice beige topping. aroma is chocolate, nutty, somewhat salty and somewhat sugary as well. some husky and alcoholic astringency which makes it less pleasant. flavors are farily harsh malt husk with a big splash of alcohol when cold, but rounds out qutie a bit once it warms up. palate is full but somewhat boring with not much character. I like the idea of an imperial brown, but this one doesnt do it. some light earthy hops on the finish. ok, but not something i would pick up again

Pours mid brown with slightish tan head. Slightly fizzy. Nose os mild caramel/malt with slight underlying biscuit character. Medium to light body with flavors of mild malt and caramel/chocolate goodness. Finishes wih slight dryness. Fair.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2006
Bottle: Deep brown with ruby-red highlights. Chewy, medium body. Somewhat flavorful, with notes of milk chocolate, bread, nuts, brown sugar and caramel. Pinch of sourness. Aromas of toast and roast (nice at first, but they seem to fade to the point of being well in the background). Mildish bitterness follows. Nice -- yet common and predictable -- flavors and aromas.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Deep translucent wine-like red-brown, thin-medium creamy off-white head. Toasty, chocolatey aroma with grapeskin notes. Sweet body with chocolate and toast, brown sugar, and prickly alcohol. Red grapes add a fruity character. A surprisingly harsh brown ale; the flavors simply don’t meld well. I’m glad I’m not drinking the entire bomber.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown color with a tall tight tan head. A very dark, but good looking brown. Caramel and simple malt aromas, with hints of cooked greens as a mild disturbance in the background. Lots of sweetness greets the mouth. A mild dark candi flavor, with lightly roasted malts. Starts to get cloying in feel toward the end of the quaff. Some licorice and vanilla flavors mingle with the sweetness, but add little to the "enjoyability" qualities. Unlike Ernie, I am not getting bored with this, rather sick of this and I have a bomber bottle, so the experience is extended. A mild dry roasted malt finish help slightly. The deeper I get into this bottle, the more I appreciate it (perhaps still not like it). A strong brown ale. Perhaps a brown strong is to be simple and strong. It just doe nothing for me.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
Nutty malts in the aroma with a strong boozy character. Clear, dark, ruby-brown body with a low, off white head that rec to ring. Strong alcohol flavour over nutty malt character with some herbal hops apparent in the lightly bitter finish. Light body with gentle carbonation that is perhaps a bit on the low side. Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

Ratman197 (9036) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2005
On tap @ Falling Rock poured a dark brown with a lasting amber head. Aroma was malty and fruity. Palate was medium bodied and dry. Flavor was malty, grainy and vegtal with a dry finish.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Draught, Breckenridge by Coors Field, Denver. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, nuts). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. I was kinda hoping this would be a more substantial brown ale, but it’s not got a lot going on...simple malt aroma and an almost syrupy sweet flavor profile that needs more bittering hops to be drinkable. I got fatigued (and bored) less than halfway through a 10oz pour. That shouldn’t be. Other than that, not bad, pretty substantial mouthfeel for the style.
