DiarmaidBHK (3688) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a thin brown head. Slight caramel note on the nose. A bit of malty goodness on the tongue with a hint of nuttiness. Clean finish. Hoping this would be stronger.

kevd193213 (927) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Draught. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of caramel and grain. Thin mouthfeel with an even smooth finish. A little boring but not too bad.

sonnycheeba (4192) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Tap. Pours clear brown with thin, creamy beige head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malt, floral hops, dates, apples, and faint cloves. Flavor is sweet malt forward with some supporting hops and light fruit esters; semi-sweet finish. Medium body, low carbonation, and low warmth.

dnstone (2360) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Not much aroma. Deep brown color. Mild maltiness with a bready-nutty finish. Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Pours brownish with off white head on tap, aroma has nice sweet notes of toffee, nuts, molasses, some burnt toast, with a touch of roast. Taste is nice with notes of toffee, molasses, some dark fruit, nice nut notes with a slightly roasted but mainly sweet finish. Good brew, but needed a bit more.

onceblind (5312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Chestnut brown, with clear ruby tones. Aroma of light cocoa, sugar cookie, and assertive nutty notes. Texture was a bit bland, a bit too light bodied with not enough carbonation. Not punchy enough. Lots of smooth nutty brown malt on the flavor. There is also some light cocoa tones, but little else. Finish is very fleeting.

adnielsen (10037) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Tap @ brewpub. Somewhat translucent brown appearance. Fairly string nutty characters on top of brown maltiness in the nose. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel with below average carbonation. Quite nutty brown malty flavor that’s very smooth and very easy drinking. One of this place’s best beers.

Sammy (9447) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2011
On tap at the Fallen Rock. A little astringent English brown however dead on style.

bigbish (596) - California, USA - JAN 12, 2011
I was excited by this beer since I love brown ales. I am disappointed. The flavor is good, but the beer is very thin and watery. Needs more body. Kick this up another notch and it could be great.
