Dark brown coloured. Has an off-white head, mostly lasting. Malty aroma, roasted bread and faint nutty notes. Flavor starts sweet, hazel-nuts, moderate bitter finish. Creamy texture, a bit astringent.

Mindwarp (11) - madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2014
UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 12oz bottle poured into DFH signature glass. Pours a dark brown, small head that slowly disappeared, Lots of tiny bubbles rising to the top. Great aroma whatever it is, and that what ever it is is how it tastes. Its a little too cold right now but I remember drinking this on the 4th of July before the left Wisconsin for a few years ago, and I remember the taste of nuts jumped out and was delicious. I’m hoping to relive that flavor again, Not thick or thin ale, does that make it a tweener? Overall this seems like a beer you always have on hand as a go to beer when you need it, Really good.

355 ml bottle from Tanakaya @ Mejiro. Pours dark brown with a thin beige layer of foam. Aroma is quite soft with subdued milky roast and some lenient hops. Feels surprisingly fresh actually. Taste feels hoppy, not so bitter but flavourful, mixed with roasted malts and molasses. Chocolate and nuts. Quite smooth mouthfeel, ending up in a long and dry aftertaste with a lingering roast. Nice beer, could actually drink quite a lot of it and not get tired of it.

Nice brown color, with a light tan head. Taste of light molasses and caramel, but totally overshadowed by the floral and citrusy hops. Also a little thin on the palate. Not a bad beer, but not great.

Lemke10 (678) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Served on-tap, this pours a dark brown color with a slight beige head. The taste is malty like you would expect brown a brown ale but has a nice bitter bite to it.

Jado (436) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2014
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a clear but deep mahogany brown with some reddish highlights at the edges and a fluffy off-white head. Aromas of caramel, leather, raisins, plums, tobacco and cocoa. Taste starts out with raisins and apple, before a rich roast bitterness in the mid-palate. Caramel, malt, smoke and chocolate at the end. Dry finish with some fruit and spice in the aftertaste. A brown ale that’s a cut above. Great stuff.
