SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2011
hazy mahogany, dense creamy lasting beige head, full body, medium-high carbonation.

aroma: bright leafy funk, toffee malt, nutty malt or oats, and bready yeast.

taste: stale coffee, leafy hops, bit-o-honey, nuts, toffee malt, some bready yeast, and a hint of charred and chocolate malts.

there’s either coffee in here mingling oddly with leafy hops, or a mild infection. the oats give a nice creamy head and body, as a well as rich nutty taste.

madvike (2917) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle shared by Alexander - Pours clear rosy brown with a thin brown bubbled head. Smells of spicy cedar, lightly nutty with sweet malt. Taste is sour lactic, nutty and dry malt, light roast. The acidic cedar finish melts together with the roast and sourness to form a coffee-like finish. Nice mouthfeel, and a fine-bubbled body make this a smooth treat.

On tap at the hotel bar for a conference in Ft. Myers. Outstanding. Pours a clear dark brown. Nice pillowy beige head with great retention and lacing. Mild aroma of toasted bread and roasted malt. Flavor has a good amount of coffee malt, crystal malt and earthy hops. Clean, slightly dry finish.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Dark but clear, reddish-tinged brown pour with a thin, quickly-dissipating light tan head. Aroma is nutty, with caramel, brown sugar, and cocoa. Nutty flavor, a touch of molasses, and a very mild bitterness on the clean finish. Palate is really velvety smooth, but a bit undercarbonated. Pretty good, somewhat average. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Draught at the brewpub, on January 21, 2011
Hazy dark brown color, tan head. Sweet, hoppy, spicy taste, roasted aftertaste. A bit moussy mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Some alcohol, root beer (Jenka), sweet, hoppy scent.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Chestnut brown with a thinnish head. Metallic choco hinted aromas mingle with a touch of bittering earthy root vibes for smelling. The body itself is easily quaffable with a delicate velvety texture that reveals a potently complex flavor without being overly cerebral. It has content with smoothed drinkability and yeilds a great session brew and one that can be good in cold or warm weather. Slight deviations from the norm are noticed in a slight plantain, cinnamon smoked out finish. nice

cheap (4210) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2011
From a bottle. Let me tell you, I thought I was not going to like this beer because its so highly rated and was expecting something really bitter & over the top; but I was pleasantly surprised. Nice black pour. Staying head with big and small bubbles. Smells good and friendly. Initial roasty mild taste. Good flavor thru the session. Has a medium to mild somewhat pleasing bitter backbone. Ashy good flavors permiate. Easy going and one of the better brown ales I’ve had, refeshingly gentlemanly. Civilized brown ale fer sure. Good overall beer experience.
