JDBaker11058 (1359) - Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Appearance: clear amber, with one finger of tight, creamy, light tan head quickly shrinking to a thin collar; lacing is spotty and fleeting. Aroma: strong nose, with lots going on--caramel, definite toffee, roasted almonds, brown sugar, rustic brown bread. Taste: sweet, with nutty toffee notes, with some caramel, brown sugar, molasses, and chicory; under that is a bit of vanilla and treacle. Finish: smooth and creamy, with a lingering nutty sweetness. Notes: This is a one note beer, but that note is tasty. It’s all about the toffee and nut flavors, so there is some serious truth in advertising here. While definitely on the sweet side, the lower-end abv and light-yet-creamy palate kept this from being a dessert-sipper-only brown ale.

dlovell2 (885) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Brown color with amber tint and white head. Malt aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with toffee and nut flavors. On tap is much better than the bottle version.

Emeister84 (1128) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2013
Toasty, nutty, and chocolatey aromas. Light brown with a faint, khaki head. Lightly sweet, flavors of caramel and milk chocolate are dominant, with some earthy hops for balance. Medium body, low carbonation, very smooth, and finishes with flavors of toasted almond and chocolate.

TizzleJizzle (626) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2013
On tap at the Arundel Mills location in the mall. Strong malty aroma. Poured a clear brown color with a really thin top. Nutty taste, caramel malts, and toffee. Medium body, highly carbonated. Overall: malt heaven!

TheGB (515) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours light brown with a light head. Light aroma with toffee and cinnamon. Taste of caramel, bread and a little fruit. Palate is okay, a little light in my opinion.

chicowv (464) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2013
12 oz bottle: Pours nut brown/bergundy. Aroma of nuts, caramel malts and sour yeast. Taste is strong caramel malt, some nut and wild or belgian style yeast. Slightly bitter and astringent on the tongue. Pretty good, but nothing special.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy, ruddy color with a large and active light tan head. The nose smells of toasted almonds and varnish. The flavor is rather bitter up front with light toffee and stale nut notes. Chalky and a little thin on the palate. Lingering dry finish. On the lesser end of brown ales in my book.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with an enormous foamy orange-tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet toffee, berries and bread. The flavor was dryish and nutty with faint notes of caramel, toffee, wood and smoke. Medium finish and very overcarbonated. Ok.
