bottle. nice brown color, clear hoppy scent. Not really what I was expecting... smooth and drinkable but not especially to my liking.

GreatSatanUSA (107) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Bottle. Nutty, has a little bite to it. Rich mouth feel. Pretty tasty, more character and flavor than most other brown ales I’ve had.High alcohol content is well masked.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Dark dark brown to black, minimal fizzy brown head. Aroma of caramel and most strongly of coffee. Got my mouth watering. Flavor is of caramel malts, chocolate and coffee bitter. A little bit of alcohol. Dominant flavor is of a sweet cup of coffee. Great beer. Haven’t had one like this in a while. The palate is a bit disappointing though.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown color (slight ruby) with a beige head. Aroma is malty, nutty and chocolate. The flavor is very rich. I taste malt, chocolate, raisin, caramel, sweetness, and has a nice hop aftertaste with a slight alcohol afterburn. Super hybrid.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby-mahogany with a thin beige head. The aroma has chocolatey malt, a touch of raisins, some earthy hops, and general sweetness. The flavor is pleasantly complex: lots of malts, caramel sweetness, a variety of earthy tones, redwood-tasting hops, a hint of alcohol, and a nice tree-bark aftertaste. Good beer, and I definitely have to throw in some creativity points.

There is a roasted aroma. The beer pours a rich dark brown and has a decent lasting tan head. The flavor is initially a caramel sweet and builds to a roasted bitterness finish, with hints of brown sugar.

pours dark brown/ruby color. small quickly dissapating head. hoppy and crisp on the first sip. sugary caramel taste. roasted aroma. definitely not your normal brown ale, not as smooth, but still good.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Dark brown. Small, creamy, tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, subtle hops, and some sweetness in the aroma. Same flavor with more hop presence. Medium body, very easy drinking. You could put down the 6pack without realizing it. Great session brew.

UNCCTF (518) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Bottled. Very, very deep brown coloring with a small off-white head that stays around for awhile. Big coffee notes in the aroma, with a very sweet flavor that smacked of chocolate and coffee. Finish was moderately hoppy, providing a nice balance to all the sweetness. Very nice.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Nice deep brown in color and translucent with ruby accents when held to light. Icy, dark tan topping for the head. Aroma is charming as usual, with brown sugar, whole wheat honey bread dough, Coca Cola, chocolatey roasted pecans and scores of silent black licorice. Prevailing sweetness of caramel, chocolate and licorice register first in the flavor department. A peppered trait curtails the nutty positioning of brazed pecans. Potentially rye and beet sugar added for additional nuances. Pecans are most relevant in the follow through. Borderline syrupy, with hops providing the sprits in place of forced carbonation. Finishes like liquefied brown sugar and melted Rolos.
