Dogbrick (11482) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a dark amber-brown color with a thin and creamy beige head that recedes slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, nuts and brown sugar. Medium, smooth body with flavors of malt, treacle and roasted nuts. The finish is malty with a short nutty aftertaste. Above average all around.

Tasted at Flat Branch Brewery in Columbia, Missouri. Medium brown appearance with a dark malty aroma. Body almost like a stout but still has nutty characteristics.

phaleslu (9380) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, served in a nonic pint glass. Pours a mostly clear brown with amber highlights and a tiny beige head. The aroma took quite a while to emerge, and when it did there were notes of nuts, caramel, brown sugar, and toast. The flavor follows mostly the same lines, with caramel malts, toast, nuts, brown sugar, cola, and vanilla. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, nutty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Just a wee bit on the sweet side but otherwise a nice brown ale.

vyvvy (5858) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Sampled on draft at the brewpub - Pours reddish brown with a dense tan head. The aroma has very toasted malt with lots of nuttiness. It has a medium smooth velvety body with semi-sharp carbonation. The taste has the malt and nuttiness of the aroma with a bit more sweetness that seems like honey. The finish has some spicy hops and a bit of a roasted taste. Nice brown ale.

jandd1983 (3831) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAY 16, 2011
It poured a brownish color with a small head. The aroma was of malt and mild hops. The taste was sweet that expanded into a hoppy malty flavor.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 2, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Brown in color with a white head that does not last long. Mild carbonation. Has a dark roasted chocolate scent and a thick mouth feel. Surprising flavor of tropical fruit in a heavy syrup. possibly pears. Finishes rather hoppy. Strange and delicious for a style I generally don’t care for...

Terminus (3566) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 16, 2005
tap at brewpub. pours dark amber witha small kacki colored head. aroema of toasted almonds, chocolate and some faint roast in there-like a nutty porter. big peanut, lightly chocolate like the old school ice cream that comes in the bricks. pretty dry and velvety palate. long nutty finish with a touch of roasted marshmellow. a very tasty and unique brown ale.
