22 oz bottle - big and brown and spicy, with tons of nutty caramel flavors. at what point does a brown ale become a Strong ale? this is about the limit, and it’s very drinkable despite its weight. alcohol non-existent in the flavor and very pleasant overall.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light chocolate colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a semi-opaque dark red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was malty and brown malt. The mouth feel was smooth at the start and mediumly tingly at the finish. The yummy flavor contained notes of hops caramel brown malt and chocolate. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Bottle. Aroma is straight-up coffee. Pours a deep, deep brown with a thin body and minimal head. Taste is sour nut with a slight corn finish. Palate is thick and it spreads the bizarre taste. If this is fun, shoot me.

This is a very good brown ale, but from the hoopla from the brewer, I was expecting more. Deep mahogany body with a one-fingered light brown head that rapidly settles down to a thin layer of fizz, this does has a deeper malt aroma, more chocolate, a light toasty scent, a nutty bitterness... a bigger American brown ale smell. Seems like there’s some molasses added to the flavor, a fairly sweet drink. Sticky finish. Pretty good - Big, but nothing exceptional.

Much more intense than your standard brown ale. Lots of roasted malt, nuts, and butter in the flavor. Aroma is lighter with dry roasted malt. Hops are lacking in this beer, but that is ok. Alcohol is well hidden and I am surprised to read how strong this beer is.Very sweet, rich and heavy, nearly cloying, but overall it works. At the top of its style. Black with a thick khaki colored head.

Very dark, almost black color, nearly opaque, with a small off white to light tan head. Aroma is malty, slightly fruity, with notes of cherries, molasses, vanilla, figs, and a touch of bananna. Flavor is malty, slightly nutty, hints of caramel, maple, molasses. Finish is mildly sweet.

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2006
A very dark brown coffee type body. There was just a slight hint of very dark orange on the edges. The head was medium khaki and lasted a long time Th aroma had some vanilla, coffee and some maple. There was a hint of some fresh cut wood. A nice aroma, especially for a brown. The taste had some roasted old coffee and a bit of almonds. The taste also had some strange old cherries. That fruit character was not nice. A weird brown. This could use a little more hops.

Courtesy of Santa. <!-- P --> Aroma is rich and malty with lots of nutty notes and some mild chocolate aroma. Body is dark brown and holds a thumb thick tan head. Flavor is pretty nice. Solidly a brown ale, but the intensity is upped so that the lightly roasted malts, nuttiness and mild chocolate notes you’d get in your average heavier brown ale are all much more concentrated here. I think this one is getting a bad rap. I thought it was damn nice.

Nice! Dark brown pour with a white head. Nice malty nutty flavor with a very smooth mouthfeel. And the large size bottle is a good value!

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 is reminscent of honey roasted peanut butter, spread over some dark wheat bread, with the smallest bit of fruitiness on the side. Tasty!
