Aeneas (21) - Port Jefferson Station, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Pours a dark brown with a rich thick tan head. Aroma was all about the brown malt flavors, a nice balance of caramel and chocolate with slight hints of sweetened coffee. Flavor was big for a brown, rich in english malt flavor balanced with some brown malt and chocolate. Pushed almost into a porter, but not quite. Mothfeel was very pleasant... rich full body with appopiate carbonation. Residual sugars provided a silken feel to the beer and complemented the hint of dryness at the end. Really a well crafted beer. A bit big for a brown, and not quite a porter, but an "imperial brown" like this is fantastic!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 21, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2007 Bottle from Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Pours a dark brown with some ruby hues and a dissipating off white head. Aroma of brown sugar, hazlenut, and cocoa powder. Initial flavor of caramel, brown sugar, and wet grains- all with moderate sweetness. Mid palate has just enough hops to balance it out but is quickly overpowered by astringency. Some vanilla on the finish that is then is dominated unpleasant fusel alcohol Messy and unbalanced. Improves at room temperature.

waolsen (1367) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2007
bottle. dark brown/black pour with tan milkshake head. lacing. aroma of roasted malts, fresh hops, coffee and brown sugar. medium body. sweet and sugary. sugars mellow as it warms altough I feel they are too dominant. sour malts, roasted nuts, fresh hops, molasses. Nice effort. The 417 is about all I look forward to from Breck.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 7, 2007
22 oz bottle served at cellar temperature. Poured a clear ruby brown color. Head was two fingers high and light tan in color. Aroma was of toffee, molasses, and husky grain. Delicately sweet on the tongue with lots of biscuity malt and caramel flavor. There were also a strong vanilla accent and a hint of milk chocolate.

tennisjoel (1191) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Average looking brown ale. Thin cocoa colored head. Aroma is buttery, roasted nuts. A little thin bodied, even for a brown ale. Not too impressed with this...Iíd choose Bells Best Brown or Rogue Hazelnut over this one. Fairly simple and one dimensional. Middle of the road given the style. The one positive here is there is a nice warming feeling without the alcohol bite.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Medium brown-mahogany no head. Buttery nuttiness in aroma, faint chocolate. Flavor is all chocolate and toasted nuts, through and through. Residuel sweetness. Only a brown, but enjoyable, if your in the mood for huge malt.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Dark, but not quite solid, brown. Medium light brown head. Lots of roasted malt and a bit of brown sugar in the aroma. Very sweet malt taste with some chocolate, roasted malts and some hops on the finish. An overall very nice sweetness...I really enjoy this beer. For a brown, done very well and packs a good amount of taste in while still leaving it extremely drinkable for 7.5%.

Pailhead (5330) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2009 Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. The aroma is loaded with roasted nuttiness alond with some light chocolate. The beer pours a transparent reddish-brown with a minimal off-white ring for a head. The flavor starts with moderate nuttiness with some faint burnt flavors. There are hints of sweet chocolate throughout. Thereís minimal bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is a tad flat and thin. A decent Brown Ale. 6-3-7-3-14 (3.3)

Re-Rate: I figured Iíd re-rate this since I bought it thinking I hadnít tried it before. After the first sip, Iím figuring the beer has improved in three years or I have a fresher bottle. The aroma is a nice combination of roasted nuts and chocolate. Thereís a slight hint of caramel in there too. It pours a transparent mahogany, with a one inch head that fades to a thin film after a minute or so. The flavor starts with some roasted nuttiness and some light caramel. The chocolate is much more pronounced than my previous rating and the sweetness of the chocolate really becomes more pronounced in the finish. It leaves a pleasant chocolate and roasted nut aftertaste. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and soft mouthfeel. A 3.3 beer usually means the beer is okay, but I wouldnít purchase again unless itís on tap and Iím strapped for choices. However, having purchased this thinking Iíd never had it before, I canít say I regret it. Certainly no world beater, but pretty tasty and a "session" beer that I wouldnít mind seeing in 6-packs. Iím using "session beer" rather loosely as it is 7.5% ABV, but it feels/tastes like a session beer.
