I was shocked at how much I would love this beer. I had Hobo’s Breath Brown Ale from Mt. Pleasant, MI a few weeks back and loved it but they were out at my favorite watering hole. This one tasted similar, with chocolate, caramel, nuts and roasted malt. But what shocked me was how smooth it went down and the excellent aftertaste. I would certainly recommend this if you can find this.

tectactoe (1527) - Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle: Fridge dweller. Dark for a brown. Almost opaque mahogany, ruby clarity when held to the light. Foamy beige-gray head leaves a sheet of lace behind. Aroma contains some toasty caramel malt, mild nuts, a touch of vanilla, & a little bit of mustiness. Hint of cocoa powder, too, maybe. Taste of earthy hops, dry must, metallic CaraMunich malts, toasted toffee, & a tiny hint of anise in the finish. Somewhat yeasty, too. It’s not bad, but many better shelf brown ales exist. A simply "okay" example of the style.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen
Dark mahogany color, hazy, with compact head. Caramel aroma, a bit fruity, candyish, already cloying; breadish and yeasty. Caramel flavor, dull, with moderate sweetness, hint of chocolate, ordinary bitterness, light sweetness; boring; a bit nutty in the end.

ROBC3366 (553) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2014
Pours a clear dark garnet with a full light tan head. Aroma is dark fruit and spices. Taste is sweet roasted malt, caramel, raisins, plums and a bit of bitter chocolate and coffee. Like a cross between a brown and a stout. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
