Mr_Abner (314) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown with an off-white head that leaves behind lots of messy lacing as it recedes. Aromas of caramel malt, some chocolate & cocoa, scant alcohol. Taste has a moderate sweetness balanced with a moderate bitterness. Medium bodied with less than average carbonation. Smooth and a bit "chalky" for lack of a better deScriptor. Flavors last well into the finish.

Bottle shared. Pours dark brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of overripe dark fruit, nutty notes, raisins, roast, cardboard and light oxidized notes (though it’s a new bottle). Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

nimbleprop (7006) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 22, 2015
50cl bottle from the brewery pours a murky nut brown with some soft, white head. Nose is what you expect from the style, bread crust, brown sugar, light yeast, perhaps some sumac. Flavor has bread crust, raisin, some turbinado sugar, maybe even a little tamarind. Some tannic tea notes finish things off.

Scopey (11563) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2015
Draught at Randolph Beer. It pours darkest opaque brown with a thick, triumphant light tan head. The nose is fresh, bitter - sweet, cacao nibs, chocolate cake, earthy roast, coffee, umami and touch of dark fruit. The taste is smooth, bitter, dark chocolate, earthy roast, coffee grounds, mocha, toasty, charred wood with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Reminds me a lot of Kernel’s dark beers. Well rounded and quaffable brown ale.
