gorditoabd (629) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2011
12 oz from Al’s beer store in Dupont Circle area DC. Pours a warm reddish-brown hue with little to no foam head. Aroma is malt, sugar, nuts and oats. Taste is smooth, mild, and oaty. Tastes a lot like a traditional oatmeal stout. Nice beer.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2011
Pours deep brown with a creamy head. Nuts, brown sugar, alcohol, and spices are in the nose. Loads of nuts on the palate, sweet sugars, spices, and a pleasant amount of chocolate make this fairly tasty.

maneliquor (3412) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2011
Most dissapointing beer of the night at the rattle n hum. Pours a dark red brown with a small head. Dry nuts on the nose. Sweet in a not so pleasant way. Nuts and spices with an almost coriander like finish. Not my favourite

AndyReynolds (1038) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Aroma is sweet malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Notes of cedar, aged tobacco leaf and some american hops stand out. The body is much lighter than expected. Flavor is a little sweet. Impressive, but not mot imkpressive.

DialSquare (3270) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2011
Just assumed I’d rated this one. I’ve tried many times now - base and variations. Brown ales in theory aren’t my thing -- the sweet brown sugars the culprit. This is one of a few that are starting to break the personal stereotype. The sweetness in this one comes more from the malts -- brown sugars are balanced out well with bitter spice and tea vibe. Makes this one of the few drinkable browns for me.

good malt flavor, drank from 12 fl oz glass bottle, mild pleasant aroma, beautiful brown appearance, fleeting texture on palette

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2011
One of my favorite brown ales. Pours dark brown (almost like a porter) and shows nice notes of malt on the nose. The smooth mouthfeel drives a really deep and decadent note of malt and grains. you get an almost roasted nut/cocoa flavor that drives into a smooth finish. Loving this beer.

sepia5 (237) - Connecticut, USA - APR 11, 2011
Pours a dark brown, more like a stout than a traditional brown ale. Strong malt nose with whiffs of coffee. Taste is also somewhat similar to a stout--chocolate, coffee, malt, and a bit of hops. A really nice beer that is essentially a toned down version of the Bolita Brown Ale.

Beerdedone (2901) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2011
Draft. Pours dark brown with a small lingering light tan head. Aroma of toasted malts, oats, caramel and a touch of chocolate. Flavor was earthy with caramel, oats, light caramel and some nuttiness with a dry finish

Draft @ JP Henleys. Mahogany brown. Rich in color & taste. Sweet w/ hints of oat. Session.
