COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is a beautiful deep amber/brown in color, reminiscent of the most noblest of not only American, but also Bristish Browns. The complex malty flavor comes from the 6 distinct grains that make up the grain bill. Add a Willamette hop finish, and you get a brew that compliments any occasion.

Bottle. Poured a clear medium brown with a small fizzy off-white head that dissipated rapidly after the pour and had poor lacing. The aroma was of light toasted caramel malts, a light resin hop and a sweet doughy yeast with a slight hint of coffee. It tasted very mild with a slight sweetness and a hint of caramel at first then became slightly bitter with a strong coffee flavor and had a slight hoppy presence at the finish. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall I would say this brew is just OK, definitely nothing special.

22 oz bottle. Pours deep copper with a pillowy light tan head. Aroma is malty with a bit of tart fruitiness, milk chocolate, nuts, earthy/vegetal, hints of toffee and soap. Taste is roasty malt, chocolate, lactic sourness (infected?), some berry, light bitterness. Nice full smooth carbonation, medium body, a little watery. This may have been infected, definitely something was off here.

devilben02 (275) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Pours from the bottle with a translucent but medium-dark, reddish brown color and a foamy, sand-colored head. The aroma has a light malty sweetness and maybe a little grassy bitterness. It’s pleasant, but there’s not much there. The flavor has a good bit of roast for a brown ale, with a kind of toasted walnut character, only a little bit of grainy sweetness, and a little astringency that lends to a dry finish. The fine, light carbonation contributes to a thin body, which is good since the beer could come off a bit heavy otherwise. Overall, this is a dry, nutty, and reasonably complex brown ale, but not a standard setter.

Davhgbrew (934) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Deep brown color. Malty yet crisp and hoppy brown. More on the hoppy and crisp side of brown, as you would expect from diamond knot. Refreshing and crisp for a brown. Excellent brew.

mcberko (6270) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
On tap at Craft Beer Market Vancouver, pours a murky brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted nuts, a little coffee and slight cocoa. Flavour brings out toasted hazelnuts, a little coffee and slight cocoa. Quite flavourful and really well-balanced. Much better than the average rating would suggest. Good stuff.

Take a look at this one’s rates, it has sour/infection issues. That said, it isn’t so horrendous if you are unaware of such things. Unfiltered red--orange body. Monstrous steady infected head. I gave up after a few sips. Just off, very disappointing.
