StefanSD (2152) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUN 2, 2008
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. pours a dark mahogany brown with amber highlights. The head is off-white, creamy, ample and recedes to 1/8 inch and holds. The aroma is medium in strength with coffee, dark fruits, molasses and almonds. The flavor is balanced with roasted malts, dark fruit and coffee. The mouthfeel is just a touch on the thin side, carbonation is adequate. The finish is medium in duration and dry. Overall: This is a very nice brown ale and one of my favorite Full Sail beers to date.

Bier brauen (246) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle. Nice dark color, with aroma of coffee. Good lacing. Maybe not quite as sweet as a nut brown could be, a just a smidgen thin on the body. But overalll it’s very good.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - MAY 22, 2008
From a 22oz. bottle purchased locally. Aroma is malty and full of dark fruit, plum and raisin. Color is a deep brown with ruby highlights with a small tan head. Flavor has a touch of toast followed by some rich maltiness and then a touch of roasted grain. Medium body and mouthfeel that dries in the finish from the bitterness and roast. Very clean and full rich flavor. Almost like a lighter brown porter.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 22, 2008
A beautiful auburnish brown, with a small off white head that recedes from three fingers to one. Strong toffee nose, with some roasted coffee that follow onto the palate with a sweet creamy mouthfeel, lots of different nuttiness is coming through here, almonds and hazelnuts. Its a bit one dimensional, and not overly impressive, but just enough to keep its head above water, enjoyable enough, but not something I would purchase again.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2008
Clear deep red mahogany. Rich nutty chocolate aroma, very malty nutty chocolate palate, sweet with a moderately bitter dry finish. Really flavourful, delicious.
