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.

Sammy (11177) - 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,

Pours a dark dark brown with little head. Malty and sweet - some wild berry and cherry tastes, maybe some maple or chicory. Great texture.

(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.
