Poured a hazy chestnut color with a beige head. Chocolate and malt make up the aroma. Sweet with some light notes of ash. The flavor had a touch of chocolate with a roasty malt base. Mild taste of ash. Medium bodied.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Ale is a nice brown color with a small foam cap. It fades to just a wispy veil. Sweet smelling maltiness over a decent hop bill. Tastes of sweet breads to start followed by coffee and espresso flavors ending with a hint of chocolate. Decent hop taste that doesn’t interfere with the malts. Hops are there just for the bittering aspect I think. Silky smooth and nicely balanced beer. Full bodied. I think it lacks a bit on the appearance side, it needs a bit more foamy action. Otherwise good, real good.

Excellent flavor with superb body. No bite. It does pour pretty flat with no head, but it is delicious.

mkel07 (3092) - 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 (2055) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Can from Mari’s. 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 isn’t big on brown ales.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - 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 (367) - 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.

Canned. Mahogany body with a small beige head. Chocolately at first with some doughy notes, then a sweet lingering roast character. Thin but flavorful.
