A bit of a flat taste, but not bad flavor. Good dark amber color. Not overly carbonated, which is always a good thing.

ReverendMoon (136) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2013
This is actually a pretty darn nice brown ale. For a style that tends to be pretty bland, it has a nice chocolatey flavor. Quite malty, as expected. Hint of coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mtbiker54 (27) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 6, 2013
Une bière très malté, chocolaté avec des touches de cacao. Une légère amertume mais qui ne compense pas le côté "trop" sucré de l’ensemble.

12 oz. bottle in a pint glass. Pours a dark brown with a reddish tint and thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, caramel, and chocolate. Taste is similar, with a dry, slight coffee after taste. One of the more enjoyable beers I’ve had with a prominent toasted malt bill.

Time to rate this one - tap form, pours (shockingly) a medium brown color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty, nuts, hint of chocolate, caramel...good nose, if not particularly memorable. Flavor is very malty with chocolate, roasted nut accents, slight bitterness toward the end...splash of vanilla. Palate felt appropriate for the style. Good drink overall!

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle from bottleselect.com. Pours dark ruddy copper with a slight yellow/tan head. Aroma of roasty malt and chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor is oily/nutty with chocolate and quite a bit of malt. Not all that sweet tho. Good brown ale.

Draft, pours a clear dark brown. Malty aroma. Taste of caramel, toasted malt, slight nuttiness. Decent overall.
