trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Pours ddep brown/mahogany with a 1 cm tall tan head. Rich toffee and cookie-dough aroma with nuts. Lovely taste. Malted chocolate, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, and a little roasted coffee. Kind of like "Chock Full O Nuts" in a beer. Nice.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Very deep brown with a reddish hue. Hazelnut and malted milk aroma with moderate milk chocolate and some pipe smoke (pretty sure this is my description of every brown aleís aroma). Softly malty, roasted aroma with some tartness, more nuttiness. Soft carbo, light bitterness and pleasant lingering aftertaste. This a nice one - almost more like a light stout than a brown ale. This isnít my favorite style, but Iím not sure thereís uch more I could ask for here.

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Brewmaster reserve 2008. Aroma is a sweet roasted caramel scent. Color is a deep near solid amber with good carbonation and a thick tight head. Taste is bold, rich and roasted. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a smooth feel that has a slight crispness in the end. Finish comes in with a deep roasted flavor that has a sweet caramel taste and a rich feel, all of this is followed by a very light bitterness. After taste leaves you with a nice sour roasty flavor. Not one of my favorite styles but this is a very interesting brew. Its bold and very complex with the sour note on the end making it stand out from other Brown Ales.
