On tap at brewery, I thought this was a good offering, it pours a browny colour, light head, roasty malts I would say, finish almost nutty, didn’t notice the oatmeal but good flavour

I really enjoyed this one. Good, toasty malt on the nose and palate. Slowly diminishing head, and layers of complex and toasty malts. Browns are not usually my favorite, but I’ll definitely have this one again.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 Bottle. Re-rate. Poured with a nice off white head that carried a slight aroma of malt and coffee with some qualities of slight tannins and caramel and chocolate. Poured a nice brown, not too dark or light. Flavor was heavy malt and coffee all the way, with a slight nutty quality to it. Touches of caramel and chocolate round out the flavor nicely. A great brown ale and base beer which makes all of CCBs other brown ales superb.

Floback (537) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle from Decanted, a small beer/wine store here in Naples, FL. Pours an almost-viscous Aromatic notes of walnut and toffee in the nose. Sour, almost sweet hints of plum, subtle yeast, and candy upfront with an overall malty, bready backbone. I detected a well balanced note of resinous hops in the finish. Full and round mouthfeel with medium carbonation. All-around, this brew is complex and satisfying.

Medium brown with a tan head. Nose is big cocoa & toasty malt, mslightly milky sweeness and something slightly off-putting - I don’t know how to describe it other than dusty. Flavor is cocoa, really nice caramel with some dark fruit/cherry notes, maybe a bit of tobacco. Sweet in the finish - hops are there but not enough to balance it out. Still, a very nice example of brown ale, in line w alesmith nautical nut brown.

Bottle thanks to Solan. Poured a dark body with nice head. Aroma is slightly sweet. Nice and robust tone to it and a smooth finish.

Draft at Rattle & Hum in NYC. Pour a nice brown color. Nice brown ale, medium malt, lightly sweet.

LinusStick (2954) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2011
An OK brown ale. Aroma was kind of weak. Slightly alcoholic with roasted malt and earth coming through. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was decent but not spectacular. Roasted caramel malt mostly with just a slight chocolate-ness and earthy hops. The flavor is not very full and doesn’t break through the carbonation very well (which is nice and strong). Run of the mill brown.

Skvader (116) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2011
Aroma of butter fudge. Taste is more like a fudge flavoured with hazelnut on bottle but on draught more like pure hazelnut. In both cases this flavvour is balanced by a clear aciduous bitterness from the hops, but on the bottle there is a less pleasant aftertaste than on draught.
