bhensonb (13850) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 12, 2008
Bomber. Dark chocolate aroma. Dark brown color with a three finger beige head. Medium body with fine carbonation; almost chewy. Flavor is lots of chocolate, dark roasted malt, and bitter (probably burnt malt and hop). Finish is dry, and the bitter is persisting. Seems to be really good for a brown ale. Damn near crisp.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pours dark with a full head with good retention and fluffy lacing. Aromas of nut shells. Full nectar with good carbonation. The texture is soft. Malty and dry roasted with flavors of nut shells, herbs, bubble gum dust, bakers cocoa. Theres a mild hop component that delivers a citrusy bitterness. The finish is bittered well and lasting, dry and snappy. Nice complexities.

2008 Brewmaster Reserve. Dark brown almost mahogany in coour, nice thick light tan head. Aroma toffeeish maltiness and slightly toasted . Toasty, milk chocolaty taste, hints of coffee in the end, bitterness tinges the after taste. Nice palate for a brown, quite nicely carbonanted. Overall a good brown and drinakble.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2008
Bottle: Mahogany, ruby color, light sticky head. Nose of yeast slurry, light vacuum cleaner hose, subtle almond and bitter bland hops. The flavor is acidic, plenty of bitter earthy hops. Light and vague, salty? Not good.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2008
Dark brown with a small tan head. Mild roasted nut aroma. Medium bodied with a gentle carbonation. Nutty, roasted flavors are balanced by sweet malt, and dark chocolate. Not bad but kind of boring overall.

jake65 (3354) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - APR 5, 2008
Bottle: Dark brown pour with a nice sized beige head. Aroma is malty and roasty. Flavor is roasty, toffee, and nutty. Feels like a traditional PNW brown ale... easy drinker.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - APR 5, 2008
This is a very extreme beer: extremely bland. Why bother making a brew with so little character. Lightly roasted pale malt with minimal chocolate tones all wrapped up in a wet soapy uninspired weak and thin body. The nuttiness is present but does not add enough to make interesting. Not bad, just very average.

riversideAK (6078) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle from the PCC. Pours brown with a decent beige head. Aroma was nutty with some roasted malt as well. Generic brown ale more or less with a pleasant nuttiness. Decent roast. Balanced and drinkable, but not too much going on here.

4oz Taster - Spring Beer & Wine Festival - Portland, OR
Aroma – Lots of malt aroma the light nut in the background.
Appearance – Brown in color, Nice light head and clear.
Flavor – Good brown ale flavor the nut flavor was very night. This is an enjoyable beer.
Palate – Nice Mouthfeel, good texture with a dry finish.
Overall – A good overall brown ale the nut flavor was very light. I like the nut experience so I would care for even more nut in the flavor. Very enjoyable beer.
