harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Best by 13JUN13 Lovely crystal brown with a near complete tan sheet. Smells of nuts, cocoa, roasted malts, a hint of low impact, earthy hops and just a hint of cinnamon. Taste is bitter, slightly sweet, roasty, toasty and maybe a little astringent. There’s something a little off in the flavor. Medium bodied with fine, velvet carb and an off dry finish. Decent.

A delicious, thick-bodied brown ale. Resembles a stout. Nice, chocolately flavor. Smooth. A great, refreshing drink!

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle. Hazy brown pour with a finger of head. Oak, whiskey, brown sauce, soy sauce, chocolate. Water-like and light initially with sugar and carbonation towards the middle with water and bitterness at the finish. Good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nealblind (1556) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Dark brown translucent one finger white head. Aroma of big roasted barley, soy sauce, malt. Tastes like roasts; coffee, barley, chocolate. Some acidic tang to finish palate is overcarbed. pretty good.

SFtaster (62) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Decent example of the style. Firm malt back bone and enough hops to balance the sweetness. I prefer Full Sail Amber, but I decided to try this after seeing it offered for the first time at Trader Joe’s in San Fran. Will try their ESB on the next trip to TJ’s. Looking forward to a visit to the ’mother ship’ brewery in Hood River, OR - maybe later this summer? I’m sure that’s where they keep ’the good stuff’.....

12oz bottle, from Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield. Enjoy by 6/01/13. Dark brown color. Thin khaki head. Few loose reaches of lace. Medium body. Smooth lighter carbonation. Light stickiness in the finish. Nice nutty malt and cocoa flavor. Moderate sweet taste. Decent nut brown

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Hints of vanilla, wood and cocoa. Maple brown, clear and headless. Nutty, unsweetened chocolate taste. Body is dry and thin, not what is expected for a brown ale.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle. Enjoy by 6/1/13. Consumed 5/28/13. Pours dark brown-black with a thin white head. Aroma is lagery; bread, earth, chocolate, hints of fruit, sweetness. Taste is creamy, chocolate, nutty, vaguely fruity, some bitter chocolate, roast malt; finish is slightly bitter, toasted hazelnut. Mouth feel is chewier than I was expecting; nice. Carbonation is fairly low; mild. No lacing. Tasty and not terrible; there is a hint of macro in here, vague similarities to a Miller. It isn’t overpowering but is a bit disappointing.

Nik925 (783) - USA - MAY 25, 2013
Random dark beer with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is slight and neutral. Heart of the beer is a lingering odd bitterness. Malt is thin but decent. Little to critique, just and ordinary brown. Def. harsh, nothing worth going on about.
