pours dark brown with tan head and nice lacing. nose is like that of a dark, dry scotch ale: mostly butterscotch/toffee with some dark fruits and coffee too. flavor starts fairly sweet with dark fruits and toffee, but the finish trends toward bitterness with piney hops and bitter coffee; lots of smoky roast notes throughout as well.

12oz bottle shared. Poured a medium brown color with off white head. Very nice aroma of roasted malts, hops, and some caramels. Flavor has the bitterness if hops with the roasted malts. Solid flavor and very well balanced.

"for some the peet, sweet brown malt, and ipa hop flavors don’t come together, but I think it’s nice. 7% alcohol ensures the body of this beer to be a cut above your average brown ale. 5/09 - more brown sugar than i remember, and even better (fuller) body & flavor. upgrade appearance and flavor 1 point each. easily one of the best browns out there."

Decent brown. Had good flavors with slight nut and caramel notes. Very smooth. Deep coloring. Nothing great in scent.

One of my absolute favorites. Great combo of happiness and rich malty flavor. Roasty, a bit nutty in the middle.

Brown with a medium off-white head. Nutty aroma, minimal hops presence. Flavor is the same, not a lot of hops. A little coffee and chocolate.

At Bir&Fud pub in Rome-Italy, on tap. Pours dark brown (almost black) with reddish texture and a decent and compact ivory head. Nose is definitely sweet: cappuccino, chocolate, warm milk. The mouth mirrors practically the aroma with a predominant presence of dark chocolate.

This is a beer that has such a hoppy front with the most flavor on the back. The malt character, the roastyness and all the sweet caramel and smooth flavor just really makes this a favorite of mine.
