Sigmund (6277) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2011
12 fl. oz. bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV not mentioned on the label. Very dark brown colour, nearly black. Big to moderate tan head. Nice malty aroma with notes of caramel and brown bread. The flavour is distinctly malty with notes of caramel and brown bread again, without becoming too sweet. Low bitterness. Nutty finish.

nwiseman (195) - Norwich, Connecticut, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Pours cola brown with small fizzy tan head. Sweet and bready aroma. Somewhat woody and fades into a warm malt and slight bitterness. Relatively thin but a good amount of carbonation. Not quite what I was hoping for, but a beer that warms you up anyways.

Capa (2566) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Very dark brown. Powerful aroma of roasted malts, booze, molasses, and some chocolate. Flavor has a nice medium roasted malt notes, molasses, light chocolate, some nuts, bourbon, and light earth tones. Medium bodied with a smooth syrupy feel. Really enjoyed this robust brown.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2011
Deep brown pour. Tight tan head. The nose is quite chocolatey and a little bit herbal. Sort of a nice toasted malt character and a little bit of herbal spicy character as well. Pretty solid brown ale.

Lowe1983 (1473) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Slight roasted aroma with some nuts, chocolate, and some molasses. Flavor was similar at first but finished pretty thin and watered down. Had high hopes for this but ended up being dissapointed.

Leighton (17454) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle. Thanks Nate. Clearish ruby-brown pour, foamy off-white head. Standard brown ale nose, some dark, light cocoa malts. Fairly sweet, malty, light mocha. Medium body with lively carbonation. Lightly burnt malts to finish, mild booze, faint cocoa. Not too bad, despite what some would say.

ddemmingjr (795) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle from the brewery: pours a deep, dark chocolate brown with a persistent fluffy tan head. Notes of toffee, roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, smoke, hints of vanilla. thicker mouthfeel with earthy, woody malts up front and then some bitterness from the hops pulling through.I appreciate the carbonation adding a bit of wheatty balance to an interesting beer. Not outstanding but pretty solid

jcr (2517) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown body. Short tan head, rapidly diminishing. The aroma is malty with notes of roast, caramel, ash, chocolate with hints of floral hops and tobacco. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderatley sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, thick texture, average carbonation. Chewy malts and lots of flavor. Lingering aftertaste of char, ash and tobacco along with caramel and a hint of alcohol. A robust brown ale.
