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

JustinFromAL (125) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Bottle. Dark deep brown with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with some bread. Flavor is mild to be called "bold". Mudled, not bad but not great.

daknole (10872) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2008
brown pour, small tan head. Malty, nutty, and pumpernickel aromas. Flavor is malty and pretty watery. I am not impressed with this brewery again.

harrisoni (17278) - 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.

Bottle 355 ml
Appearance: clear mid brown with midsized creamy contrasting top. Some lace shown 4-
Nose: Initial strong hint of brown malts , fudge and chocolate. Finish of brown malts with molasses.
Flavor/Palate : Medium full bodied with soft texture. Brown malts with grainy roast. Slight bitterness . Very straight forward with lightly off centre finish. Some hop bite would help . Toasty plain brown ale.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a lacy but scant tan head. The aroma is light, a bit nutty, with hints of caramel and chocolate. And a little alcohol. Medium body and fairly active carbonation. A bit of chocolate in the taste, then the lightly bitter finish shows up, along with some light acidity. Underwhelming.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 5, 2009
12oz bottle. Brown with a lasting beige head. Vague toasted malt aroma with a light plastic-bag quality and some fruity, grainy sweetness. The flavor is just boring brown ale with sweet, light toffee, and some very lightly "nutty" roasty aspects. Low on the hops and bitterness. Med-light body with decent texture. Just a weird, almost cooked flavor overriding everything. Sadly, just another boring brown.

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d possibly get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. Not a bad brown ale, missing some of the nuttiness or chocolate id look for, but nice and sweet and drinkable.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Pours a clear mahogany brown with a 2 finger, creamy, beige head that has good retention. Aroma is toasted nuts, sweet white bread crust, lots of dark caramel, a little burnt sugar, floral, planty and light citrus hops. Maybe a hint of chocolate as well. Flavor is sweet caramel, brown sugar, a touch of roast, walnuts, woody and lightly bitter citrus hops. It all seems pretty good until this very strange aftertaste come around, well after swallowing, it tastes like old dried corn grains and brown lettuce. Definitely brings the beer down a couple of pegs. Palate is fairly light bodied, slightly syrupy and a over carbonated. I don’t know what it is, but this beer dove off a freaking cliff on my second drink. Must be the first beer after work phenomenon. Still not to bad, but at first sip it seemed great.

RedSox2004 (1672) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Amber brown wih a modest head and minimal lace. Nutty caramel with hints of toffee flavor. Medium body and mouthfeel, minimal carbonation. Inoffensive, just not terribly interesting.

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