Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2010
The aroma is a bit sweet and malty. The color is rich coffee dark brown with a white head. The body is light with an unpleasant malty flavor that lingers for a bit on the tongue.

nuplastikk (4697) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2010
12oz bottle. Deep, barely translucent, deep stained glass burgundy-brown. Thin, soapy, oily head. Mellow chocolate malt aroma. A deep, heavy beer flavor-wise, but it also remains pleasantly medium-bodied. Chocolate and candy notes, with a sandy, dry hop balance. Maybe some sugary maple tones as well. This is an awesome Brown, approaching Stout/Porter territory. Burnt caramel-toffee notes, and maybe a hint of amber malt. Good stuff.

demitriustown (1088) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2010
12 oz bottle: Aroma is malt, caramel, toffee, nutty and coffee grounds. Appearance is a cloudy brownish black with a thick off white head. Taste is malt, caramel, nutty, chocolate, and a slight roasted characteristic. Palate is medium carbonation with a lingering sticky malt mouth feel. Aftertaste is malty and it lingers. Overall, A middle of the road brown ale. Cheers!

12oz bottle. Pours brown with a medium head. Malty sweet taste that didnít really excite me all that much. Average.

RoscoeJackson (378) - Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2010
as expected from dark horse, this beer is fairly dark and big bodied for the style, almost reminds me of a porter... roasty, toasty, earthy, soy sauce on the tongue. a tiny bit of earthy nut on the nose.. dark horse once again delivers a solid brew, but iím not in love with it.

cheap (4198) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Smell is rather choco malt, not bad. No head from a gently poured botttle. Rude burned charcoal personality on the tongue. Little CO2. Dark chocalate comming thru. Longish bitter burnt linger. Much stronger than I expected. Taste is bigger than the 5.5% listed here.

WabashMan (1014) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2010
An interesting brown, in that it seems to incorporate a lot of the flavors of a stout. Nose is chocolate with a hint of soy sauce. Really a very nice aroma. Flavors are similar, though a touch more bitter and perhaps not quite so deep. Perhaps not the best choice if you want a lighter brown, but very good, rich, and tasty.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottled. Poured deeper brown with a dense, but short-lived tan head. The aroma picked up a nice blend of toasted chocolates and nutty notes, accented by dry peppery earth and a pinch of vanilla.. very well presented. The flavor was led by nutty notes, with caramel and semi-sweet chocolates trailing.. tacky earth and lightly sour malty notes on the edges.. finished with a warm blend of malts and odd related sourness. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. prickly carbonation, but a syrupy feel at other times.. odd flow to it.. overall solid and drinkable.

arkurzynski (1578) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Pours brown with red accents. Aroma of caramel, molasses, brown sugar, hazelnut, and mild hoppiness. Flavor of toasted malts, brown sugar, light dry, hop finish. Sessionable, predictable, but good.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
thornecb (4528) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Pours deep brown into a shaker. Mocha head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface leaving trailing sheets. Sweet dark caramel and earth aromas. Raisin bread and toasted marshmallow upfront turning dry in the roasted hop finish.
