DiarmaidBHK (3170) - 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.

sonnycheeba (3049) - 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.

Cybercat (2993) - Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Pours a deep, almost opaque, almost sable brown with a fine-bubbled tan head. Aroma is rich and smoky with strong coffee overtone and spicy hints. Malty flavor is well-rounded with a considerable burnt coffee component and hints of chocolate and hops. The sweetness nicely balances the hoppy bitterness. Texture is smooth, rich and pleasing.

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

iowaherkeye (2686) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUL 29, 2009
On tap @ Falling Rock. Clear copper brown with a small beige head, fading to a thick film. Buttery toffee up front with some light toasted malts behind. Flavor is a little roastier and has less buttery notes, though still faintly present. Finishes semi-dry, lightly roasty, and nutty. Bitterness was @ a 2. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. OK brown.

drjay44 (2488) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Draft. Pours a thin off white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 25) body......nose is light toffee.caramel, light cocoa, chocolate.....taste is cocoa, chocolate, nuttiness, slight toffee/caramel, finishing with a light bitterness......mouth feel light of medium, slightly astringent, carbonation low. This is a mild take on a Northern English Brown Ale. It is, overall, rather simple in its construction with minimal complexity, but it does fall into the style. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7
