This beer has a frity undertome to it. Not what I’m looking for in a nut brown. Pours a deep dark rich brown which lead me on the think this was going to be something special. Little bit of a let down.

Bottle shared at the Big Black Beer Bash 2011. Don’t know who brought it, but thanks! Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a small khaki head. Lots of roasted malts in the aroma, along with some nuts, chocolate, and sweet caramel. Flavor is more of the same, with the sweet caramel coming in earlier, followed by roastier malts, chocolate, nuts, and toast. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Very ncie brown ale.

This was a great little brown ale. Honey sweet aroma that is almost borderline nutty. Some tasty chocolate notes, along with a malt profile that remindsme of honey roasted peanut butter, spread over some dark wheat bread, with the smallest bit of fruitiness on the side. Tasty! butterscotch,

A: The pour is a nice dark brown color with some light red highlights to it. A big off-white head forms with the pour. S: Nice and malty with plenty of toffee and nutty character on the nose. Perhaps a hint of chocolate and caramel, too. T: Nuts and toffee right up front with maybe just a hint of acidity for some unknown reason. Perhaps it’s the subtle fruit flavors I detect. In any case, fairly sweet and malt forward, like a brown ale should be. M: The body is medium with a lively carbonation to the beer. D: A pretty nice beer overall. Good flavor and aroma profiles, and easy to drink.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a huge foamy brown head. The aroma was bitter, tangy and faintly roasty. The flavor was creamy malts, cocoa, vanilla and faint dry roasty malts. The finish was medium length and malty with a lingering vanilla presence. Medium body. The alcohol was well hidden. Decent.

22oz bottle. I got it on sale at Cork & Barrel really cheap or else I probably would not have purchased it. Drinking it in a New Holland pint glass. This should be nice after working for several hours on he yard. Chocolate, cocoa, slight roast and malted milk aroma. Brown with ruby highlights and a smallish head. Taste is malt sweetness, nutty, milk chocolate, light floral and fruity notes, dark caramel and an ever so slight roastiness. This is a nice example of a brown ale, more akin to a Northern English Brown than a typical American Brown. It generally hits the mark for the style, although obviously bigger than most. Still, I would be hard pressed to purchase again.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle 650 ml
Aroma soft fragrant nose , hint of cocoa , touch of rose.
Appearance brown brew with garnet light. Mid white top , some lace shown.3+
Flavor and Palate : mid bodied , soft curve with slight sourness on sides. I am not sure if that sourness was intended. Alcohol itself was well covered. Some roast finishing. Nothing special , felt to be flawed.

65 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA. Dark brown with a ruby hue. Roasted malt and caramel aroma, brighter flavor than the previously tasted Rogue Hazelnut Brown. Sweet flavor, some alcohol detectable with a nice banana caramel finish.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Bomber. Very dark brown with thin very thin white head. Aroma is bland malt of dark caramel and booze and light earthy hops...boring. Flavor is too sweet! Also, molasses and light earthy hoppiness. Finish is sweet and not really bitter at all at the end. A total let down!

ben4321 (4019) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Location: 22 oz bottle from Wine and Beer Westpark, 2/25/10

Aroma: Roasted malts, chocolate, a good amount of cherry, some nuttiness, and earth
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with a fizzy beige head, some lace
Flavor: The taste is somewhat sweet and fruity, with a fruity sourness to it as well
Palate: The carbonation is fairly lively, with a somewhat sticky feel, and an astringent finish
Overall Impression: Wow, this one is not at all what I was expecting at all. It looks like a brown ale, it smells like a brown ale, but it tastes like sour fruits. Man, a total surprise. I’m not even sure how I feel. Did I like this? Did it work? I can’t decide. I think it is interesting, but ultimately I wouldn’t say it is making me pumped to rush out and try it again. Weird stuff...
