AWISLguy (1191) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle from Brook Falls Discount. Pours a very dark brown with reddish hues and a quickly disappearing tan head. Almost no lacing. Aroma has nuts and tree bark and toffee and faint chocolate. Taste is of sweet toffee, a solid nutty presence, bittersweet chocolate, and some coffee. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly nutty, possibly a bit short. Very smooth. This is not at all a "hoppy" brown, as the ones typically that are enjoyable, however it is a tasty true-to-style version, and very solid. Even going back to the September day went running to the local place to find more Edmund Fitzgerald and came back with this and some New Glarus - a few years back - solid then and still solid.

Really liked this! Not as heavy as I expected-poured a dark brown with a tan head that was small. Definite hops and chocolate combined with a nutty taste. Will drink again.

ciaranc (800) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 21, 2013
Mahogany brown, big creme coloured head, creamy and lasting settles eventually to a thin residue. Looks great. Roast malt, coffee and nuts predominate in the aroma, with puberty notes from the hops. Lovely flavour, light roasted malt, more coffee and some hazelnuts. Hop bitterness is there, but never more than to offset that nice roastiness. Big, soft, lush mouthfeel, medium, tight carbonation. Finish is long and perfectly balanced. Excellent.

jeremyh70 (667) - Missouri, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Pours dark brown with a finger of tan head and little lacing. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and toasted malt. Slight roast flavor with chocolate and a some caramel. Nutty and tobacco flavors as advertised. Mouthfeel is somewhat slick with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice full flavors but not too heavy. A dark beer you can drink in the summer. Would pair well with a cigar.
