Nice dark brown with a light colored foam. Malty aroma, very minimal. Nice malt forward taste. Deep but not woody. Maybe a bit of chocolate. Well carbonated. Overall a very good brown ale. More beer please...

Tmoney99 (10554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle shared at Natifest ’14. Poured clear dark brown color with an average to large frothy tan head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex toasted malt and sweet fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted complex sweet flavor with a solid sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is still a solid complex beer.

Bottle shared at Natifest. Pours a clear amber with no head. The aroma has maple syrup and molasses and brown sugar. The taste is big sweetness. Medium body. Low carbonation.

750 ml bottle shared by Beerpig317 - thanks again, Bunker! Never even heard of this one before. Interesting. 2012 vintage. Pours an amber color with a finger of off-white head. Nuts of toasted malts, tobacco, nuts, earth, brown sugar, dried fruit, and oak. Hints of oxidation setting in. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a dry, toasty mouthfeel. Good brown ale, but on the way down.

750ml bottle, tasted at Natifest. 2012 bottle. Clear red, kind of brown color. Some particles suspended in the body. Thin ring of off-white head Some bits of lace. Caramel, dark fruit in the aroma. Some light hints of oxidization, maybe. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter, lightly spicy. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Solid, interesting complex brown ale.

8/02/2014: Founder’s Furniture City Stock Ale 2012... Remins me of an American-style ESB. I like the toasted malt and soft bitterness. I really wish I would have been able to try this earlier in the day before all of the REALLY big stuff. Even so, I really like this beer and can really appreciate the style and subtle complexity.

750 mL bottle. The poor is a very dark ruby almost light brown, with a medium light tan had and some decent lacing as it fades down. The aroma has a strong sugary sweetness to it. There is a good mall presence, but not a whole lot else going on. The sugar almost smells like a brown sugar. It carries a little bit of that molasses type of aroma. The flavor is a little sweet, and then carries on a bit of a metallic-y malt flavor. There is a light sugar, but it's much more malty and equally quick on the flavor. The mouth feel is thin and slick, with not a whole lot of carbonation to help it out, so it's light-bodied. The aftertaste is lingeringly sweet and metallic ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mattyhennessy (287) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2013
Dark brown pour. Appears like a porter. Malty and biscuity flavours with low hops. Coffee and chocolate from the dark malt appears balanced with lighter malt flavours. A solid beer

Shared 750 to shaker. Clean dark reddish brown. Nice and malty. Similar to an American oktoberfest to me.

This is the best Stock ale ive ever had!!! Whatever that means because I dont think Ive ever had one before. Tastes like beer. Not really sure what else to say besides light malts and sweetness with little to no hops. At least the person that bought this to trade it to us spent money that went to a charity.
