mkel07 (3297) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2014
330ml bottle from Slow Beer. Rating from May 2013. Great looking beer when poured and the thick brown head hangs around for a while.

boxofrane (2085) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Can from Mariís. Pours an ugly murky brown, fizzy like a coke. The aroma has plenty of roasted malt, chocolate notes, a bit of espresso. The taste has a nice mix of milk chocolate, coffee bean, fairly sweet but easy enough to drink. Not a bad beer from a guy who isnít big on brown ales.

BelgianBeerGal (3137) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2014
TJ Tallahassee can. Good enough where I just drank the whole can and completely forgot to write notes. Reminded me of sweet, rich, milky, coffee with a hint of nuttiness.

rollinsr (383) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours dark caramel brown with no head (I had the can on ice). Aroma is nutty with chocolate malt. There is also some smoky java character as well. Flavor is sweet and smoky with a predominance of the nutty flavor. The aftertaste is nutty and sweet as well. Very nice.

desurfer (1212) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Canned. Mahogany body with a small beige head. Chocolately at first with some doughy notes, then a sweet lingering roast character. Thin but flavorful.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2014
12 oz can. Vacation in Tampa. Almost solid dark brown; big, light tan head. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, roast, vanilla. Medium body. The absolute most killer "standard" brown ale I can remember. Really great for 5%.

hopmelt (172) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Pours medium brown, finger head that dissipates quickly. Aroma roast, chocolate, caramel malt, slight earthy hops. Taste follown nose, a a bit nutty that was not detected in nose, slight sweetened coffee as well. Mouthfeel creamy, medium body and carbonation, balanced finish. Overall very well made beer, one of, if not the best American brown ale Iíve had, wish I could get this in Ohio.

Frank (2814) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2014
This is one of those browns that veers toward being a porter w/ strong roasted grain notes. It pours mostly headless into the glass and is a relatively clear brown color, There is a good amount of roast in the nose, lots of chocolate and a sort of slight metallic tinge I donít find anywhere else in the beer--and you kinda gotta dig to find it so itís not the end of the world. This is slightly sweet and very slightly tart which brings out the chocolate notes and also a bit of dried cherry and raisin. This is medium to full bodied and has a good prickle of carbonation. The finish is lightly tart with a lingering bit of sweetness and roasted malt. This is a pretty good beer but I think it could deal w/ being a bit dryer. it strikes me as a very ordinary example of the style even w/ its strong roasted character.
