Draft. This is an excellent beer. Pours deep brown with minimal head. Aroma and body are fairly good. Taste is outstanding. A toasted nut flavor with hints of sweet molasses are found in this marvelous brew. Hops are balanced very nicely and do not overwhelm. I wish I could get this at home.

Brewpub tap. Clear dark brown. Roasty and nutty aroma. Sweet palate with generous malt, roasty and nutty tones and a bit of smoke. Bitter finish. Fantastic brown!

Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2007
True to it’s name it poured a deep dark brown but it came with little to no head. Who’s pouring these beers anyway? What it lacked in appearence it made up for in spades with taste. Full flavor of almonds, walnuts and molassis. Very malty with a full and hearty finish. Too bad it’s only been rated 4 times and that I have to fly 1500 miles to get some!

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2007
On draught at the Flanagan’s Central Station in Whitefish, Montana. Pours a clear dark brown brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin film and ring. Aroma of toasted caramel malt, hazelnuts, and some flowery hops. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium bodied with a nutty caramel malt flavor. FInish is smooth, sweet with a light hop bitter aftertaste that disappears quickly.

Pours a nice dark brown color. Aromas of nuts/chocolate/caramel. Flavor is nutty with a nice sweet honey chocolate taste and a little coffee bitterness. This is a great beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Draught at The Old Post in Missoula, MTBrown amber color, light head and lacing. Nose of light nutty caramel malt and plum. The flavor is toasty and sweet with a chewy thick pasteurized dead layer of malts that adds a good malliard type of experience. Finishes tangy and medium bodied. Good brown for a brief instant.

Dark brown with very small off-brown head. Toasted nutty nose, with hints of sweetness. Flavor is rather nutty with a good amount of sweet malt to balance it out.

22. Pours an opaque ebony, nearly black. Loose tan head that takes a real shake-up during the pour to stir up. Tiny drips of lace. Mild caramel and black bread on the nose. Creamy medium body, a little on the flat side. Walnut shells, black bread, and darkened toast on the mid palate. Slightly ashy finish. Not sure if this is quite how they meant this to turn out if they’re putting "brown" on the label, but it’s pretty engaging in the neighborhood of a slightly flat foreign stout, session style, so I’ll round up a bit.
