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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours brown with a medium off white head which quickly settled to a film. Aroma is caramel, vanilla and some roast undertones. Taste is sweet with some tartness. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Very drinkable, the tartness makes this brown interesting plus its very sessionable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Devils Den. Pour was dark brown with creamy head. A really nice english tasting brown ale, notes of wood, brown ale malt, caramel, roasted malt and nuts, so drinkable and perfectly balanced. As it warmed I was getting a good bit of vanilla, little bit of cinnamon, and some hazelnut. Medium bodied, and sessionable as shit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear brown red with a lively off-white foamy head. Aroma is roasted malt and honey. Taste is sweet with notes of burnt caramel, which is probably really the toffee. Nicely smooth with a bit of darkness. Not very hoppy at all. I could enjoy a sixer of this

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This has some very sweet flavors and is almost like a sweet stout. If you are into that kind of thing this beer is for you.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The brown ale pours hazy amber with a decent creamy white head. The aroma has pleasant sweet nutty malts, almost like fresh made fudge. The flavor starts out with a regular malty profile but delicious flavors of toffee fudgy and nutty malts come in nicely to settle on the palate. Body is carbonated well.
