Aubrey (3452) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Dark ruby-red with a tan head. Has a weighted body, but it’s relatively easy to drink. Nice balance between dark, sharp roast and sweet, grainy-peaty malt flavors. Some lactic-like sourness and a pinch of bitterness rounds things out well. Subtle flavors and aromas of nuts, caramel, coffee and light spices. Not too shabby, especially for a typically boring style.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2008
22oz bottle. Poured deep brown with a slight reddish hue, capped with a moderate sized tan head. Aroma is sweet malt with nuts (almond), cocoa and toffee. Flavor is nutty, with some chocolate and some vegetal character. Medium body. (bottle from 5000 - Thanks Andre!)

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 25, 2008
Nice caramel nose with some fruitiness and light cocoa. Deep crimson in the light looks brown in the glass. A nice eggshell white head and no lacing. Very creamy mouthfeel. Lots of cocoa chocolate in the flavor, nice toffee presence and a crisp, hoppy finish. This is a lovely beer! Thanks André.

DYCSoccer17 (3357) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 24, 2008
22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Vacaville, CA. 2008 Reserve. Husky, slightly sweet, chocolate malt aroma with some nuttiness and a little molasses present in the nose as well. Rather aromatic and pleasant. Transparent tawny mahogany body with a frothy, large light tan head. Attractive. Starts a bit metallic with some slight astringency following that. Some husky, grainy, toasted malts are present in the middle. Finishes with a little chocolate and cocoa character. Light, lingering bitterness. A bit thin in terms of the body. Not bad for a relatively boring style.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2008
Draught. Dark brown grizzly bear color. hardly any lacing. Dry, brassy aftertaste. Some chestnut. Not too sweet. Pretty good for a style that often induces sleep.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2008
Aroma is burnt coffee, chocolate. Appearance is black with a tan head, good lacings. F-Flavor is dark roast coffee, chocolate malts, some bitterness. Very god for the type. P- Palate is just slightly thin for the type which helps make it sessionable. O- Overall a great session brown ale. Don’t know how it will age but I’m going to buy at least one to try. Nice brew.

dalekliz (882) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 21, 2008
On tap at Hamilton’s, shared with WeeHeavySD. Reddish dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of toasted malts. Sweet taste, of dark fruits, malt, and a bit of chocolate. Lingering toastyness. Nice brown ale.

2.9
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2008
On tap. Dark brown with decent head. Solid nut brown that offers light chocolate flavors, with a bit of astringent alcohol coming through that is out of place. You can do better, but I wouldn’t refuse it.
