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.

Ungstrup (30935) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 24, 2005
[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.

Sammy (9813) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2005
Great colour and lace and promising mollasses and alcohol aroma, but taste was initially sour and then more malty after mxing in some spicy food. For the latter, its a quencher. Some burnt carmel,

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2005
Pours a dark dark brown with little head. Malty and sweet - some wild berry and cherry tastes, maybe some maple or chicory. Great texture.

beerseer (51) - Lewiston, Maine, USA - APR 5, 2005
(bottle) - Color is a shimmering orange-brown on the pour and appears in the glass as burnt sienna in hue as the ink of the scuttlefish, with just a touch of violet. Small white head dissipated almost immediately to a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Aroma is of barley and a little hops. Mouthful is smooth, not too thick, very satisfying. Nutty flavors with barley and slight sweetness flow into flavors of brown sugar and something reminiscent of Honey Smacks cereal at the end. Sweetness is pleasant and refreshing, not overbearing. Post consumption burps taste entirely and strongly like hops. Very interesting.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 4, 2005
Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet malts, raison, toasted bread, and caramel. Nice thick malty body. Has a sweet raison taste complimented by a thick burnt bread taste. Finishes mostly sweet and slightly dry with a slight warming sensation from the alcohol.

Arayaga2 (1930) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 1, 2005
It’s like a watered down Orkney Skull Splitter combined with a Smithwick’s (not a fan of either product). No real smell to it either, but the color is nice and dark. ($1.80/12oz)

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Bottle. Dark garnet with no head-just a ring of bubbles. Nose is sweet and coffee like. Taste-notes of chicory, cherry cough drops, and some residual hop bitterness. Very, very sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is way, way, way too sweet to enjoy.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - MAR 22, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 12oz bottle from the cellar. Served @ 57° in my NB worthy glass. Pours dark reddish tinted brown with a fair sized sand colored head. The nutty aroma wafts up while I am pouring the beer out. When I stick my nose in the glass, it is more of the same nutty aroma, with some malty undertones, and possibly a touch of heavy roast. Taste is malty, somewhat roasty with coffee notes, but with some hops midway and even more hops on the finish, which eventually gives way to a malty, sweetish finish, no doubt helped by the caramelized brown sugar. Despite being sweetish on the finish, it is far from cloying. This seems to avoid the excessive maltiness sometimes present in these beers and makes it into a decent session beer. I would have never guessed 7.2%, but that sugar addition has to contribute something more than sweetness...
