Muddy, dark nut brown color, creamy brown head. Chocolately and nutty nose. Light palate - brown ale -like light chocolaty malty flavor with some woody hoppyness in the finish. A bit plain, but drinkable.

Tap at Barcade. Dark brown cloudy beer with a thick off-white head. Very persistent. The aroma is very unusual... lots of soft coffeeish character over heavy husky roasted malt. No real roasty bitterness, just a pronounced roasted barley aroma over some soft carmel base malts. Coffee and bitter chocolate. It seems like a whole load of carafa malts were used to get such a prominent roasted character without any bitterness or astringency. Flavour is quite nice, but completely unlike any other brown ale Iíve ever had... dark crystal, a bit of roasted grainy character that I kind of like. It seems quite rustic, but itís still balanced. A very unusual take on the style... and for a style thatís usualy so boring, this is a good thing.

Cask at Brazen Head. Gloriously murky brown with a beige head. Aroma kind of like a sugar daddy pop or milk duds--buttery caramel with a touch of milk chocolate. Flavor of nutty and toasty malts, caramel, light chocolate, with some íbutterscotchinessí which could be a bit of a defect, but otherwise forgiveable given the fact that itís a cask ale. Almost there.

On cask at the Blind Tiger with golubj; hope he entered it right. Color was nice; looked like caramel. Not much head. Aroma was light, but better than the flavor. Some nuttiness and caramel. Flavor was not assertive enought, even for the style. Palate was a bit off as well. Overall this was not a great version of the style.

Cask at the Blind Tiger. Pour is muddy orange brown with no head (as expected). The aroma is sort of faint, but definitely peanuts and a little caramel malt. The flavor has a little nuttiness also, but the palate is watery and the malt is almost non-existent. Nice appearance / aroma, but bad taste.
