12oz bottle in MA. Dark brown pour, foamy tan head. Lighter aroma and taste than the look of this beer. Light chocolate malts, banana nut bread. Mild fruit and very light chocolate. Fairly light.

Glass at the Green Dragon. Pours a deep cloudy brown color with a small white head. A big sweet malty nose, some coffee. The flavor is dominated by bitterness and coffee, light roast, sweet nutty flavors, some toffee. Pretty nice.

CapFlu (4462) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2013
(12oz bottle) Malted nose, somewhat peat and burnt sugar. Earth and minor booze flavour but too thin. Above average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eRock_2013 (201) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2013
A nice brown ale indeed, solid brown color, chocolate hoppy aroma. Taste is good, featuring chocolate notes with a dry finish, but could be more assertive. Very smooth with a relatively light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Bottle @ home. Colore marrone scuro, solo alcuni riflessi rubino. Schiuma color beige scuro. Profumo tostato, pieno di frutta secca,e luppolato erbaceo. Il corpo medio , la carbonatazione gentile e il piacevole grado alcolico la rendono di una facilità di beva impressionante. Il gusto è asciutto, di mallo di noce, un po’ tostato e con un caldo alcolico lieve. Non è il mio stile ma mi ha favorevolmente impressionato.

Ron (2443) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a brown color, with a light tan head, Smells of nut, malt, maybe some chocolate, and some hops. Taste is chocolate and nuts, with some malt on the back end, but a pleasant milk chocolate flavor. Decent body from a brown ale. Overall not too bad, enjoyable.

tmoreau (2289) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, displaying a coppery/brown color, with fairly lasting, brownish tan head froth, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was roasty, with some malty creaminess, light chocolate, caramel, and a little nuttiness & woody hints. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the flavor remained roasty, with a medium, earthy, and tanniny hop bitterness, some lingering nature, and a touch of smoke. Nicely malt smoothed, so no real bite. Tasty, and pretty darn quaffable!

tomciccateri (995) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 8, 2013
12-ounce brown bottle from the Clifton Park brewery. Pours an opaque brown, medium-bodied, early hop bitterness then a dry malty flavor. slightly sharp chocolate character. Overall, OKAY.

Bottled. Brown malts and the like. Nutty. Pretty standard fare for a nut brown. Inoffensive enough.

A decent brown, very dark, maybe too dark, pleasant all the way through but style-wise just didn’t quite hit the mark for me.
