COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep, bold nut brown ale beautifully balanced with rich dark malts and a complex hop character converging to reveal a simply enchanting elixir.

rlgk (18199) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle. Amber color, offwhite head. Malty chocolate aroma, a bit unfresh. Roasted malt flavor, a bit too thin.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer. Very dark brown colour with thin disappearing head. Some dry malt on aroma, some yeastiness. Mouthfeel is ok, but nothing interesting, flavours are some sour fruit and some dry malt. Bit toasty. Bit of nuttiness I suppose, some drying on tongue on finish. Fine, but rather bland and dull I thought. Not even as interesting as a British premium bitter of this strength. The malts are there, but don’t impart sufficient flavour. No bad or off flavours.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2008
Bottle, Alibi Room
Red-accented brown. Fruity nose - raspberry and some chocolate notes. Thin body, light fruitiness and insipid coffee. Not exactly my kind of beer.

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours a dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet candied dried fruits, nuts, sweet dark malts, and chocolate cake. Flavour is less full, with toasted nuts, muted dried fruits, roasted dark malts and some feint molasses. Quite easy to drink, but also a rather muting flavour profile - but maybe my taste buds have been scorched off after so many big beers. Solid, but unmemorable.

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Malty aroma typical of an American brown ale. Clear brownish amber color with reddish hilites. A little white head that laces a mite. Has a smooth malty taste, again it’s a brown ale. Mouthfeel is medium, and creamier than most brown ales. There is a hint of some sort of spiciness, and there is a little hop at the end. Overall it’s a brown ale.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown pour with an average frothy light brown head that diminished slolwy. Light sweet roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Good sweet burnt malt flavor with a small bitter finish of average duration.

Ratman197 (13278) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle poured a clear brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cocoa, carmel, light fruittiness and a hint of spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, carmel, nuts and a hint of spice with a smooth semisweet finish.
