Earplay (51) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle approx 4 months old. Subdued hop character so more dominated by malt - sweet, raisin, chocolate. Well balanced, mild bitterness. Overall a complex and enjoyable brown ale, would like to try a fresher bottle to compare.

wombat23 (329) - Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Dark brown and clear with a light tan head. Nose is sweet roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Similar flavor, with brown sugar sweetness, a hint of scotch, and mild hop bitterness. Much more personality than the average brown.

darbeer75 (259) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Aroma: malty, hoppy and sweet; very nice; Appearance: dark reddish amber with fluffy head that dissipates quickly; a little lacing; Taste: very malty and smooth; coffee and caramel undertones; only negative is a slight sourness that isn’t entirely pleasant; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: great beer; would definitely buy again.

Pours a clear reddish brown with a thin tan head. Sweet malt aroma of caramel and brown sugar with light apricot and hops. Sugary malts up front and floral hops in the finish. Interesting combo of sweet brown ale and a pale ale.

Cherry cola color with minimal head. Huge aroma of toffee, coffee, toasted malts, raisins, nuts, and caramel. Flavor follows aroma with spurts of piney hops and bittering. Mild carbonation and smooth mouthfeel.

Fatehunter (2051) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Pours a half finger of head on a clear brown body. The aroma is toast (almost burnt), wood, brown sugar, caramel and raisins. The taste roasted malt, then some pine bitterness, big dose of caramel sweet and a bite of grapefruit to finish. The texture is crisper. It’s pretty good.

_angst_ (4261) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle bought @ Kihoskh. Pours hazy brown with a small frothy beige head that quickly dissipates while leaving lots of spotty sticky trace on the glass. Smell is malty, grassy and tiny fruity with dark bread, caramel, chocolate fudge, grapefruit juice, moist grass, pine needles, moist soil and lemon zest. Taste is sweet. bitter, malty, grassy, earthy and tiny fruity. Mouthfeel is soft, round, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with dark bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, moist grass, pine needles, cocoa powder, moist soil, lemon zest and hints of cardboard. Solid hoppy brown if a bit old with faded hops. Solid but had higher hopes.

jmanceras (2) - MEXICO - DEC 16, 2015 does not count
Una gran combinación entre IPA y Brown Ale. Notas a nuez y caramelo en nariz, tiene un amargor moderado, hace sentir el lúpulo sin incomodar. Gran cerveza, peligrosamente bebible.

Sirmixsomewhat (173) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2015
I love the smell of coffee and hate the taste of it. This beer is a pint of cold coffee in smell and in taste, and because it’s so strong on the coffee notes, it’s not palatable to someone like me. I can appreciate the craft here, but I can’t drink this beer.
