Bottle shared by Shane, thanks! Poured a slightly hazy red with a brown hue and a light brown that had a yellow hue that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of espresso with roasted malts and a note much else. Flavor was similar with espresso, but also a definite smokey/salty ham note that grew towards the finish. The ham note definitely took me for a loop.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to Markwise!). Pours clear brown with red hue liquid. tan head is slight and some nice, active carbonation when held up to the light. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and wood. Taste is sweet with some roasty bitterness. Thin bodied with creamy texture. Carbonation is fizzy on the tongue and finish is somewhat bitter. Easy-to-drink beer and very sessionable.

Aurelius (4127) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Good label, except that it’s slick plasticky. Rich, chocolate and raisin aroma. Grassy, porter-ish, toasted-roasted, not much fruit flavor. Tangy coffee in the finish. Lingering hops. Very good. New Leaf Market.

Dark brown. Chocolate, cinnamon, caramel and bannana on the nose. Rich and chewy texture. Light hazelnut, oat and chocolate notes. It finishes smooth and well balanced. A very enjoyable brown ale.

Palidor19 (2936) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2010
has a lot of nice toasted brown flavor with a bit slight oatmeal as per the bottle. toasty, brown sugar0 a slight off flavor at the end but it doesn’t take anyway form the overall beer.

Chalsk (1064) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2010 Pours a brown color with an off-white foam head. Has an aroma of roast and molasses. Sweet smoke taste with caramel notes, and some oakiness. Thin to medium mouthfeel. Packs a lot of flavor though. On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a hazy brown color with an off-white foam head. Has a nice roasty taste to it. This is a great, complex session brown ale.

Bottle thanks too 50belair. Clear brown pour, small light tan head. Mostly roasted malt, nuts and chocolate in the aroma. Flavor is similar, but has this interesting spiciness to it, also caramel and light coffee. Nice, well made brown ale.

pours a brown color much like root beer with a medium tan head...nice lacing! aroma is delicate...roasty and has notes of coffee. flavor has some spicy and earthy hops, notes of tobacco, chocolate, and coffee. mouthfeel is a tad bit watery immediately then becomes creamy and silky with a lingering roasty and spicy finish...slightly dry. awesome brown ale!!
