12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown that is almost black with a medium sized tan head. It has a very nice chocolate malt aroma. It has a espresso and dark chocolate taste to it with some vanilla. This beer is outstanding. I really enjoyed it.

Standard nut bown ale, altough it’s kind of spritzy with the carbonation and nothing special in flavor.

Dark brownish red body with medium off-white head. Decent malty flavor. Not awful, but there are better out there.

12oz bottle. ruby brown pour with a minimal oily head. right off, the hop and malt aromas are present and very up-front. there’s also a smoky/hazy element in the aroma, like forest dew; also caramel hidden underneath the layers. while it does taste like a brown ale, it shows likenesses to both pales and porters. it’s a pleasant mix. the finish is a tad oaky, and the mouthfeel is a bit spicy (clove).

A hearty brown color with a thin off-white head. Aromas are malty caramel, with a spicy nut smell. Like a toasted hazelnut almost. Taste is caramel forward, with more pronounced toasted nut flavor in the back, balanced by a light hop bitterness. Finish is still mostly caramel. Not bad.

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

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Nice aroma, head doesn’t hang around long, thin mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate, sweet malt, hops to balance. A nice brown ale, but I wish it had more mouthfeel to it. I’d like to try it on tap, might improve my rating.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2006
Poured from a 12 oz bottle a deep brown with a slight reddish tint and a small tan head. Aroma was of roasted malts and hops. Flavor was roasted (almost burnt) malts with a good hop finish (coffee like) as the beer comes up in tempature turns more towards a bitter chocolate. Overall not a bad brew.

Bottle. Pours deep, deep brown;almost black, with a small light brown head. There is a small ring of lace that resides. Some roasted malts, mixed with caramel come to mind in the aroma. The flavor is packed with coffee, roasted malts, toast, spritzy carbonation, and finishing somewhat hoppy. A slight chocolate note comes out as it warms a bit. Nicely done brew and something that I will drink again.
