brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Draft at Falling Rock during GABF. Brown nut shell with a medium off white head. Brown roasty malt that is very stereotypic to the style but good. Lightly roasted flavor. Simple with very light malt sweetness. Nothing off and well balanced. Smooth mouth feel, medium body. Nothing fancy but well made and sessionable.

Ratman197 (9036) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2007
On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of sweet toasted malt, cocoa, carmel and toffee. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of toasted malt, light cocoa and a hint of nuttiness with a smooth malty finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9094) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Draught at brewery. Pours clear light brown with a small fizzy off-white head, mostly diminishing, spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, caramel), light hops (flowers), average yeast (dough, earth) with notes of cola. Light bodied, thin texture, flat carbonation and a bitter finish. Short duration, light sweetness, acidity and bitterness.

Draft at the Falling Rock. Mildly hoppy, sweet toasted malt accented aroma. red/brown tinted body with a firm pinky thin tan head. Fore is slightly tangy. Toasted malts. fairly estery with some perfumey notes. Finish is again somewhat tangy. Nice mouthfeel.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2006
This was quite yummy, with a really strong chocolately malt ball flavor like you used to get in the movies. Rich and lightly roasted, with a medium bodied mouthfeel, and a tasty bit of nuttiness and toffee in the finish. Highly enjoyable

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2006
On draft at Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver, 4/15/06: Reddish-brown with little aroma but a yummy malt-ball flavor. Nice and smooth. Excellent.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Draught. Wonderful roasted malt and chocolate aroma, with hints of fudge and fruits. Flavor is rich, malt accented, and a bit unorthodox for a Brown ale, considering it had significant roast and burnt malt flavors. Very rich in body as well. Bull & Bush has impressed me thusfar. I should visit the brewery soon.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Thin minimal head. Medium tan color. Light buttery aroma. Taste is buttery, toffee. Lots of roasted malt, nuttiness. Finish has this tinge of burnt malt, which fits very nicely. Good stuff.

Pours nice dark brown. Aromas of molasses and light floral. Sweet taste although lightly bitter, which I enjoyed.
