UPDATED: FEB 20, 2007 The aroma is quite roasty, but fairly organic and "puppy breath" smelling with notes of coffee and muted chocolate. The body is brown with a diminishing tan head. Fore is toasty and chocolate accented then it goes sweet through the middle with fruit accents and malt and finishes with a roasty bitterness. Lacks that take it home kilelr flavor concentration and lingering aftertaste, but a very drinkable brew.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Bottle: Brown, slight ruby tinge, minor sudsy beige head, fairly weak lacing to the point of looking still.   Strong malty aroma, nutty, hints of cocoa and very minor dark pitted fruit.   Lactic sourness, malty, dry cocoa on the tongue.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Slightly nutty finish, roasted malts linger, minor cocoa and dark fruit aftertaste.   Seems to thin out at the exit, otherwise not bad.

Bonus beer from a trade with Jonathan3584. Thanks Jonathan! Pours medium brown with ruby highlights..Slight tan head graces the top and laces the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, some brown sugar and a little hazelnut. Flavor is malty, caramel, chocolate malt, and a little brown sugar. On the palate this is thick for a nut brown. Very malt driven and it coats the mouth nicely. Enough hops to make it finish crisp and delicious. This is a very nice beer. I enjoyed it and it was very true to the style yet it strays enough to make it exciting.

Excellent heavier duty interpretation of the style. Malt driven, mouth coating but not quite at a typical stout level. Appropriate fizz level makes this beer very moreish. Malt drys out a little at the finish keeping the beer fairly tight.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2006 Pours a translucent mahogany...with a light creamy head. Nose light hops, lots of caramel malts and nuts. Flavor is more sweet malts, but still more hops than I thought I might get. Interesting. Choco-malts, brown sugary-ness too. Hops and some alcohol in the end. I liked this more than most brown ales.

This tasted like a damn good brown ale, I think it would’ve tasted better if there was less alcohol other than that great flavor.

Thin tan head. Great dark chocolate brown pour. Flavor explodes on the tongue - dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, spicy hops. This is probably one of the best brown ales I’ve ever had.

[Cask at GBBF 2004] A brown beer with no head. The aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of coffee, roasted malts, as well as alcohol. The mouthfeel is very soft.
