BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
[355ml can] Pours brown, with a decent head. Nutty, caramel aroma with a heavy carbonation. Sweet and lozengy. On the flavour, the oatmeal really comes to the fore, the aftertaste is long and smooth, lots of caramel and toffee. The alcohol is really well hidden [18062015]

Pours medium brown, thin tan head. Aroma is faint, some toffee. Taste is great, lots of nutty roast, caramel, toffee, chocolate, an average dose of hops in the American style. Smooth but not creamy palate. Quite nice overall.

EyeAmBaldman (379) - Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours mahogany with a khaki head. Aroma is toasty nut with chocolate and coffee. Taste is dark chocolate at first and then some sweetness on the backend before the coffee hits. Darn good brown ale.

BillWyce (841) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Pours clear red-brown with a 2-finger light tan head. Aroma of nutty malt with a lot of char. Medium body, very slightly oily. Soft finish. Flavor of roasted nutty malt up front, giving way to a brief note of citrus. Mix of caramel and chocolate in the finish.

Tessic (934) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
This brown ale poured a deep amber colour with a big, tan coloured, creamy head. Scents include very ripe fruit, sweetness, caramel/molasses, coffee and paint remover??? First swig was sweet and slightly weak. Flavours of syrup, caramel and fruit juice. Finish is too much old fruit and a little too sweet.

CBC Yellow Session. Keg. Almost clear amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Caramel malts, trace of cardboard. Modest tangy fruits Light dry finish. Passable but disappointing.

Gurthnar (3027) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 10, 2015
Can from Amersin. This beer lives up to everything it declares about itself. Rich malty aroma, chocolate, plums, roasted notes. Slight tobacco. Clear dark brown colour. Only flaw in this beer is cosmetic, quickly disappearing head. But the beer remains easily drinkable, indeed silky mouthfeel. Lots of malty complexity going on, chocolate, caramel, biscuity, dark malts. And this all while remaining at a session level both in ABV and flavour intensity - not overwhelming. Very good.
