iowaherkeye (2703) - 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.

Crushed with Jakebra at Falling Rock. Average brown. Some substance but not much to it. A very drinkable brown just not that exciting.

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.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, 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.

Stine (1761) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Tap at the Falling Rock. Pour of creamy, dark toffee appearance, layering a thick, frothy head up the sides of the glass. Aroma of cream soda, vanilla cavendish, salted taffy, fig, and raspberry. Nutty, sweet and soft. Flavor is a sweet mash of old bananas, cinnamon, caramel, red licorice, vanilla, and toffee. Palate is cool and very soft with an earthy, woody texture and lots of residual sugar; finishes long and dry with raspberry bitterness and some gummy iced tea. Underattenuated throughout, but pretty smooth and easygoing enough to be pleasant.

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.

waolsen (1375) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2008

ttoadee (1297) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Notes from recent Denver trip: at Cibo on Boulder St. medium brown pour, creamy off white head. Nose is dark malt. Bittersweet. Middle is brown sugar, malt and treacle. Finish is sweet, maybe a little too sweet.
